THE ULTIMATE HIPSTER: Strands of pearls draped over your stag tattoo's horns: essential. Need to have ever come across or seen a stag in real life: optional.

THE ZZ TOP: It's like the girl from The Ring - but just a hippie flower-child version - is wrestling with his face. But no, no, that brillo pad brunette mop is just one very well cultivated beard.

THE CONFUSED: It's like a scene from Hannibal: he's woken up, found himself tied to a chair, with flowers in his beard and weeds stitched to his torso. Yes, this whole situation looks completely non-consensual.

THE SULTRY INTELLECTUAL: He reads books but has the intensity of Derek Zoolander. Dream man.

THE LAD: Who says a bloke can't adorn himself with perennials while enjoying a beersie?

THE PURIST: One colour, one line, surrounded by said flower. No artsy-fartsy bouquets for this bloke.

THE A-FOR-EFFORT: D-for-execution.

THE FULL BEARD: Meanwhile, this gent deserves an A++ for execution.

THE GIRLFRIEND MADE ME DO IT: His flowers say 'aloha', his eyes say 'help me'.

The latest hipster trend to spread like wildfire across Instagram and Tumblr is men who have adorned their chins with daisies (or succulents, or roses).

Whether this is the last straw in your tipping point towards hatred for the hipster's love of beards, or it simply delights you because of its artful whimsy, know that it's not necessarily a new thing. Back in the flower power days of the 70s, hippie men would thread daisy chains into their facial hair - the big difference is that they didn't have the internet at their fingertips and so couldn't share their creations with the world.
