From Facial Hair Tentacles to Beard Cages

My inability to grow a beard means that I am green with envy just thinking about all of these facial hair finds. My crustache just isn't enough.

These facial hair finds range from mundane to epic. How epic is epic, you ask? We're talking stop-motion mustaches here. Enjoy all the bearded excellence that Trend Hunter has to offer. I'll get there one day.

Implications - With the recent proliferation of hipster culture, abstract facial hair has now become quite popular and consumers are purchasing products that allow them to demonstrate their affinity to beards and mustaches. Corporations in all industries can follow a similar model and provide consumers with fan expression products, satiating consumer desire to demonstrate their dedication. For example, corporations may consider sponsoring conventions that allow like-minded consumers to share in their fan appreciation.
