Men Online Are Turning Their Facial Hair Into 'Monkey Tail' Beards

Kasia Mikolajczak

I have to admit something to you guys: I'm not a huge fan of men's facial hair. There — I said it out loud.

Having said that a little goatee similar to Iron Man's Tony Stark never hurt anyone. Am I right? That I can get behind. But there is one new trend in men's grooming that we might all find questionable. Check it out.

This new trend that's hitting the streets isn't for the faint of heart.

What is it? It's called a "monkey tail" or "cat tail" beard. Apparently, there were sightings of this unusual beard style back in 2019, but it never took off.

Well, I hope, for all of our sake, it doesn't take off in 2021 either.

I mean, take a look at it. What do you think? Does it remind you of a lemur's tail or something like that? Ha, ha!

Why would anyone do this to themselves?

Or better yet, how could they think that this looks good? That's a question I would ask any man I saw sporting a look like that. Am I alone in this or what?

I don't know about you, but I think this look is a bit wack.

Perhaps the guys are a little bored at home right now with the pandemic. But still, that shouldn't be an excuse to go totally wild with your facial hair, right?

I just have no words for this look.

All I can think of is, "Why?" For the love of life, why? As a French mustache wasn't bad enough, he has to add on the monkey tail to that.

As it turns out, even famous men are doing it.

Baseball player Mike Fiers was seen with this bear back in 2019.

So what are you waiting for, huh? Are you going to jump on this latest male beauty trend? I hope not, ha, ha! I just don't understand who thinks of something like that.

Seriously, when I look at this beard, all I want to do is shave it off.

Am I the only one? It just looks so off to me — like something crawling on the guy's face. Do you get what I'm saying?

Here's a collage of a few different looks for you to check out.

That third one on the bottom is crazy AF. That's some serious committment to men's grooming if I've ever seen one. All these looks are freaking me out.

So what's the verdict? Are you Team Monkey Tail Beard or Team No Way?

I would have to pick the latter. It's definitely one men's facial trend I would like to stay as far away from as I can, ha, ha!
