A quirky beard accessory created by an ad agency for its tongue-in-cheek Christmas cards has become an unexpected hit.

Beard Baubles were designed for Grey London's hirsute members of staff to wear in the company's Christmas card.

Designers Pauline Ashford and Mike Kennedy were so pleased with the results they decided to sell the baubles for charity.

Their first batch of festive face decorations sold out on the Beard Baubles website, with customers from all over the world snapping up the facial accessories.

All proceeds are donated to Beard Season, an Australian melanoma charity that encourages men to grow beards in winter to raise awareness of the disease.

Beard Baubles are expected to be back in stock tomorrow.
