This is a grizzly way to mark the 12 days of Christmas.
Photographer Stephanie Jarstad, 26, brought together the “12 beards of Christmas” calendar after being inspired by the enthusiasm surrounding Movember.
Miss Jarstad, 26, enlisted the help of 12 different models and dressed their facial hair with an assortment of Christmas accessories.
She said: “I wanted to do something fun and quirky, like Movember. I’d seen pictures of beards decorated with flowers on Instagram and it really inspired me.”
The amusing photo series, which includes one beard which has been transformed into a Christmas tree and others adorned with jingle bells and fairly lights, has become popular online.
Miss Jarstad, of Seattle, said: “The response has been pretty good so far. The series has had more than 70,000 views.”
Miss Jarstad, found her hairy models after putting out a public casting call and spent more than 30 minutes decorating each beard using anything from leaves to green hair spray.
She said “It was such a funny experience. Everyone had a great time.”
Miss Jarstad’s calendar can be seen at her Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/uk/shop/abeardforallseasons.
