Also known as the cat tail beard, this look involves grooming your beard and mustache into a long tail-like shape that starts at one sideburn, runs down the jawline, along the chin, and then curls up around the side of the mouth, and then ends above the top lip.
Having said that, wheather you love the look or hate it, there’s no denying that it’s eye-catching and definitely deserves a mention.
This quirky facial hair fad came into the limelight back in 2019 when MLB baseball player Mike Fiers modeled his own monkey tail beard on the field during a game.
Ever since then, the trend has gained popularity amongst men who don’t mind experimenting with their look. Check it out.
Of course, netizens also have a few things to say about this trend.
