If you like to have facial hair, including different types of mustaches and beards, you need to keep it properly cleaned and groomed in order for it to look nice. This isn’t extremely difficult, especially if you have the right products to help you out.
Since beard and mustache hair is thicker and not as soft as the hair on your head, you will want to use a conditioner on it after you wash it. Once you have washed and conditioned your facial hair, you need to wait for it to dry before you try to trim it, or else you may end up with a shorter beard or mustached than you planned.
During the grooming process, there are some tools that will come in handy keeping different types of mustaches shaped and styled the way you would like them. These include a mustache comb and scissors, mustache wax, and an electric beard and mustache trimmer.
One option for trimming your mustache is to use the Tweezerman His Moustache Scissors with Comb. The scissors feature finger holes that are extra large to make them more comfortable to use and the blades are very sharp to make it easier to cut different types of mustaches accurately. Most reviewers found these easy to use and perfect for the task, although a few had blades that were a bit dull. However, this is easily fixed as Tweezerman offers a lifetime sharpening guarantee.
For those who have more than just a mustache to trim, the Philips Norelco G370 All-in-1 Grooming System is one product that can take care of trimming both beards and mustaches. It has an ergonomic design and 9 different settings so you can cut different types of mustaches and beards to the right length. It includes 6 different attachments to meet your grooming needs. Many reviewers love the product, finding that the battery keeps the charge for a long time and it does a good job trimming all of their unwanted hair, although some people are unhappy with the fact that you need to charge the battery and can’t use it when it is plugged into the wall.
Once you have finished trimming different types of mustaches, some mustache wax, like Brothers Love Bartwichse Moustache Wax, Styling Pomade – Clear, will help you keep it neat and in the shape you want it. This wax is well liked since it has a nice smell and a very firm hold.
There is nothing manlier than having a mustache. The mustache was long believed to be out. However, the time has come to bring it back and wear it with pride. In fact, a mustache really makes the man and the best part is, there are many different types of mustaches to choose from. Mustaches really add charisma and an appealing mystique to a man’s face. In honor to all men and mustache fans, we have decided to pull together a list of the manliest mustaches.
The Chevron is a thick and wide mustache, which covers the top of the upper lip. This type of mustache is a symbol of confidence and sex appeal, and from our point of view there is no better representative of a Chevron than Tom Selleck, the protagonist of Magnum P.I.
The Horseshoe is a U-shaped track of hair. It is a full mustache with vertical extensions from the corners of the lips down to the jawline. This type of mustache is also known as “biker mustache” and is a symbol for toughness. Our favorite person wearing a Horseshoe is Terry Gene Bollea, most commonly known as Hulk Hogan.
The Pencil is a narrow, thin and straight mustache that outlines the upper lip. This closely clipped type of mustache reminds us of Geoffrey Rush in his role as Stephen H. Price in the movie House of Haunted Hill. He looks somewhat mysterious.
The Walrus is a large and bushy mustache that covers the entire mouth. It is similar to the Chevron, but thicker. We associate this type of mustache with the typical style of a cowboy, and therefore Sam Elliott in Tombstone is a good example.
The Handlebar is bushy, with small upward pointing ends (you usually achieve it with styling wax). Some people call also the Spaghetti Mustache, because it is associated with Italian men. Although he is not Italian, our favorite example wearing a Handlebar is Bill ‘The Butcher’ Cutting, alias Daniel Day-Lewis in the movie Gangs of New York.
The Dalí is a special type of mustache. It is very narrow, and has long points which are either bent or curved steeply upward. The areas past the corner of the mouth must be shaved and also there must be a gap between the mustache and the nose. Its shape can be achieved with styling wax. The Dalí is named after Salvador Dalí who was famous for painting with the tips of his mustache.
The Fu Manchu
This mustache is a full mustache that extends downward past the lips and on either side of the chin and might even go all the way down to the toes. Often, the ends of the mustache will hang past the jaw, with pointed or tapered ends. The Fu Manchu is similar to the more common horseshoe (or “biker”) mustache. However, it is only grown from the upper lip, while the sides remain cleanly shaven. The Fu Manchu moustache derives its name from Fu Manchu, the fictional character who wears such a moustache in film versions of the stories written by the British/Irish author Sax Rohmer.
The Pancho Villa
This type of mustache is similar to the Fu Manchu but thicker and usually not worn as long as a Fu Manchu. It is also known as a “droopy mustache”. It is named after the historical Mexican revolutionary general.
