Particularly with the help of events like Movember the mustache has made a come back. Its like a long forgotten ghost that has suddenly come back to life. There has been no sign of mustaches for many decades now with other facial hair styles getting entirety of the spotlight. This is a trend particularly prevalent amongst western countries while you may find that mustaches have still maintained a strong foothold in the middle east.

With this in mind its hard to deny that a well groomed and maintained mustache has gotten back much of its appeal and it might be a good time to try on a pair of whiskers for yourself. Its time to bring the mustache back with style.

Nietzsche could do with some mustache trimmingNow its time to get down to business.

  • Trimming the Edges

Whenever you see your mustache growing out of hand bring it back into check by trimming the edges lightly. Also, run your comb slowly through your mustache looking for uneven hairs, and snip them into equal length on the outside of the comb for a fine finish. Make sure to check your mustache for stray hairs and take care of them. (Maybe Nietzsche would have been less lonely with a pair of Trimmers )

  • Maintenance and Styling

As with your beard you want your mustache to smell good and be as soft as possible. beard oil takes care of this. Your mustache will thank you for it. You have to take time as you rub your beard oil into the mustache. Be gentle and massage the oil into your skin to make sure it penetrates and is absorbed by the hair follicles.

Next comes the application of mustache wax. You can apply your mustache wax to achieve a wide variety of different looks. Some people like to heat up their mustache wax prior to application in order to make it more malleable but its not really necessary unless your mustache wax is really thick.

For normal application you need to just scrape some of the wax between you fingers. Rub it between your fingers to warm it up and then work it into your mustache. Take your time with this and make sure you cover every thread.

Once you have worked the wax into your mustache its time to shape your mustache. Now there are many different styles and you can get quite creative with the task. Your imagination is really the limiting factor here.

I wish you the best of luck in your journey.
