The handlebar moustache is a classy and traditional way of styling your facial hair, and although some may look down on it, it is an attractive, flamboyant style that proves itself appealing time and time again.
Collecting Your Supplies
Before you begin thinking about styling and moulding your handlebar moustache you will need the proper tools and supplies. The most important of these is a high-quality moustache wax, but you will also require a proper comb and beard oil depending on your needs.
If you wish to style your beard and moustache into any form and have it hold, you will without a doubt require some form of wax. It is important to choose a mustache wax that has your desired hold and to use the correct amount of wax when styling.
– Moustache Comb
Although a beard comb or bush may seem irrelevant to you at first, it is essential that you pick one up before ever trying to style your moustache with moustache wax. This is due to the fact that the wax is very sticky and will cause the hairs to clump together if not brushed or combed correctly. Additionally, when growing out your facial hair there is likely going to be some awkward growing phases that will require extra upkeep to look presentable. This is another are where the moustache comb will come in handy.
– Beard Oil
If you are planning to have a beard with your handlebar moustache, you will need beard oil to keep your beard healthy, shiny, and beautiful. We greatly recommend growing out a beard in combination with your handlebar moustache for the optimal look.
Styling the Moustache
– Don’t Trim
When you are growing out your facial hair you will encounter several obstacles including itchiness and awkward growth stages. Although it may be challenging, you must endure these obstacles without trimming or cutting your moustache hairs allowing for thick facial hair to grow. The best part about this is that your moustache will perfectly match your face shape because the hair is naturally grown.
– Brush Daily
When your moustache hair starts growing in, you are going to need to constantly brush or comb it from the centre outwards. This is essential because it teaches the facial hairs where to naturally sit. There is no need for moustache wax at this point, but you can use it if you so desire.
– Use Wax
As you are growing out your moustache you will inevitably reach a point where using moustache wax to tame your facial hair is essential. Without wax, shaping and maintaining your moustache would be a tedious time-consuming task.
Once you have applied your moustache wax you are ready to create the handlebar moustache. To do this you must twist your moustache allowing for the hairs to taper to a point. Eventually, you will reach a point where the hairs will stop growing and your style will take less and less work to maintain. Once you have reached this point you have successfully attained a handlebar moustache!
