We all want a mustache, we want it because it’s fashionable or because we just have Freddie Mercury as our childhood idol and we try to replicate it. But what very few people know is the work it takes to have a mustache that will be remembered for centuries. Here Burnt Whiskey experts will give you the 10 best tips so that yours will be remembered.
1: Timing is everything
The easiest thing that exists is to cut your mustache in the growth stage, at that stage it is best to cut it with a trimmer, but after 3 or 4 weeks it becomes a little more complicated and it is better to cut it with a pair of scissors. It’s also a great time to start using a comb and some wax to style your mustache.
We always recommend using an exfoliator to remove everything that your face, beard, and mustache have there that is unwanted, it is best to apply it in the morning during the bath and at night before sleeping.
Facial hair can be hair that if not cared for can feel like calf hair, so for your beard and mustache to have an incredible feeling it is very important to bathe them as well. we recommend using shampoo.
4: Dry Cut
Never but never try to trim a mustache while wet, as the specific shape of the mustache, will be lost and you could end up with something you don’t like.
5: Wax is your friend
The only way to achieve the mustache style you want is with wax, as it is the only thing that will keep you firm longer. The style you want to give is your decision but if you don’t use wax your mustache will look messy and you don’t want that.
6: Use a comb
A mustache comb is the best investment that a man who wants to grow a mustache makes, apart from the fact that it helps you to have the hair equally and part it in half so that it has that incredible look, it also helps you a lot when trimming it. Just pass the comb through your mustache until it reaches the tips and at the end of them pass the scissors or the machine, you will have the look done in a two-by-three.
7: Do not be afraid
If you are afraid of how your mustache will look on its own, there is a test that is the best we have experienced, grow your entire beard, to a point that you consider that the mustache looks good on you, after that trim the entire beard of the 2 or 3 leaving only the mustache untrimmed, so you can get an idea of what it would look like, if it does not beat, trim the mustache but if it does, just shave the entire beard and leave it alone and rock your mustache all over the place.
8: Match the shape of your mustache with that of your face
It is essential to find a mustache that goes with your face, because if you cannot end up looking like Cantinflas (we adore him, but his style is not for everyone) so first of all, see this photo and decide what type of mustache you want.
“If you have a square face you can give yourself a heavier, longer mustache, but if you have an oval face go for something with less weight and more triangular”
9: Learn to drive curves
“To reach up to – the inflection points in your mustache, take a pinch of mustache wax, rub it between your thumb and index finger, and twist the end with a technique much like finger-snapping.”
The skin under a mustache can become exceptionally dry as the hair draws moisture from the skin, allowing it to evaporate. That is why we recommend using a facial cream that allows it to stay hydrated, in addition to using a toner so that the hydration of your mustache is not compromised.
