Step 1: Remove Big Particles
The first step in getting glitter out of a bearded man’s face is to remove the big particles of glitter. Attempting to remove fine glitter without removing larger particles will only be more difficult and potentially damaging, so start with the big stuff. The easiest and safest method is to use a pair of tweezers, especially if the glitter is stuck in hairs of the beard. Gently pull out the glitter particles one by one, being careful not to pull out too much hair when doing so. In some cases, it may be best to use scissors to cut each individual hair with the glitter on it. If there is an excessive amount of glitter, trimming the hairs is necessary before tweezing.
Step 2: Detangle Hair
The second step to getting glitter out of a beard is to detangle the beard. Using a wide-tooth comb, gently brush and detangle the beard. This will help to get out any residual glitter and possibly other particles that have settled within the hair strands. For added effectiveness, use a beard balm beforehand. If the beard balm is not available, use a natural oil, like olive oil or jojoba oil and massage into the beard for about a minute before detangling. This will help to separate the bearded hairs and make the process easier and less damaging.
Step 3: Rinse With Warm Water and Shampoo
The third step to getting glitter out of a bearded man’s face is to rinse the bits of glitter off with a warm water and shampoo solution. Be sure to use a gentle shampoo, such as one specifically designed for beards. Wet the beard, apply a quarter-size amount of shampoo to the beard, then massage it in. Once the shampoo has been massaged in and lathers, rinse the beard off with warm water. The warm water helps to loosen and break apart any remaining glitter. After the beard has been rinsed thoroughly, apply a beard conditioner, as this will help to moisturize the beard and make it look healthier.
Step 4: Vacuum Cleaning
With the remaining glitter still in the beard, the next step is to vacuum the beard. A smallhand-held vacuum cleaner is ideal for this, though a larger vacuum cleaner can also be used. Carefully vacuum the beard to pick up all the remaining glitter. Exercise caution when doing this as the machine can suck out hairs as well. It is best to use the lowest setting on the machine for added safety. For even better results, use an oil or cream to help lift the glitter and make it easier to remove with the vacuum cleaner.
Step 5: Pick Out the Remaining Glitter
Lastly, the remaining glitter can be removed by picking it out of the beard. Using a pair of tweezers, gently pick out the remaining glitter from the beard. This may take some time and effort, but it will be worth it in the end. After the glitter has been removed, it is key to finish the process with a high-quality beard oil. Applying oil to the beard will condition the hair, help reduce dryness, and leave the beard looking healthier.
Using Wax To Traps Glitter
While it is highly recommended to avoid using hairspray and other styling products with glitter in them in order to keep unruly sparkles at bay, another method to prevent any loose glitter is to use wax. This is useful in between beard trims and when considering intricate styling you may want to do with your facial hair. After applying a suitable wax to your beard, you can use your fingertips to arrange your beard as desired and remove any stray chunks of glitter that may have settled in the hair.
Utilizing a Brushing Method
When it comes to removing glitter from a beard, a brushing or combing method will come in handy. This is especially useful for guys who prefer beard shaping, as the bristles in the brush can allow for more precise control. Start by setting the beard up with a wax, then carefully run the brush through the beard, removing any visible glitter. For areas that have more visible glitter, try using a coarse-bristled brush. However, be sure to go easy and not put too much pressure on the beard, as this could cause breakage.
Cleaning with a Good Hydrating Shampoo
Using a good hydrating shampoo is essential in removing glitter from your beard, as they can break down the glitters’ clumps. Start by rinsing the beard with warm water to soften the hair, then apply a quarter-size amount of shampoo and massage it into the beard. Allow the shampoo to sit for about a minute or two, then rinse it off with warm water. Be sure to use a hydrating shampoo specifically designed for beards, as this will help to nourish the hair and keep it from becoming overly dry.
Using Moisturizing Oils and Creams
Before starting the removal of glitter from a beard, it is best to use a moisturizing cream or oil. Doing this will help to keep the facial hair healthy and provide a protective barrier against damage that can be caused by trying to get the glitter out. To use this method, massage a few drops of oil or cream into the beard for about a minute and then start to remove the glitter. The oil or cream will help to separate the hairs and make the process easier and less damaging.
