Additionally, men with thick and long beards can stick small decorations into their facial hair. Some guys like to put Christmas ornaments representing their favorite teams directly into their beards, allowing the team-oriented images to dangle from their facial hair. You can also use the image sticks that go into cakes. In fact, you can use just about anything if you’re creative enough, as long as it will fit securely in your beard and not be so heavy that it tugs on your facial hair.
