Monkey Tail Beard Has Become The New Facial Trend Of 2021

Being in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic has no doubt lead to many of us taking on a new hobby or giving our look a bit of a shake-up.

Some have bleached their hair, others have grown it longer than they've ever had it as a way to pass the time.

But nothing is more symbolic of the mass confusion and 'stuff it' attitude of 2020 than the latest trend in men's grooming - the monkey tail beard.

If you're madly trying to picture how it works, it's basically when a bloke grooms the beard and moustache into a long monkey tail-like shape that runs down one sideburn, down the jawline, along the chin, and then curls up around the side of the mouth, and then ends above the top lip.

The primate-inspired look was first spotted back in September 2019, when MLB baseball player Mike Fiers donned the bizarre facial hairstyle to get a laugh out of his teammates.

However, the look soon exploded into a full-on trend across social media, with many taking the trend to wild new heights by adding stripes or even a spiral curl under the chin.

While many men are embracing the bizarre trend with open arms, it seems that others are on the fence about the whacky 'do, at least according to social media.

One Twitter user declared: "Monkey tail beards will 100% protect against unwanted pregnancies."

Another added: "Lockdown needs to end and we all need to be vaccinated stat as this is getting ridiculous now."

While the trend does seem a bit bananas, it all just a bit of harmless fun - so monkey on 'til your heart's content, lads.
