What culture(s) is the practice of putting beads or string around your beard from? (Just to clarify, I mean putting the facial hair into a 'ponytail' at the chin and then stringing the beads on.)

I know I have seen this before, but this week I saw two people with their beard in beads and one person who had wrapped it in that string people use to weave bracelets. His had alternating stripes of red, white and black.
And it got me curious! So, is there a name for this kind of thing? Is it from somewhere in particular?
Maybe I used bad search terms, but I couldn't find anything about it on the web, except how to do it.
