Say hello to lace front beards.

Denzel Wells, a contestant on the new co-ed season of  America’s Next Top Model, recently rocked a lace front beard.

ANTM creator Tyra Banks referred to the installment as “Top Model’s very first face weave” or a “lace front beard.”

Since the episode aired, there has been a considerable wave of discussion on social media.

Gawker declared the beard weave as “the dumbest thing ever done on ANTM,” while BuzzFeed called the lace front beard “terrifying” and created a series of epic gifs featuring Denzel and his fake face fur.
