Movember Moustache Styling

So, you’ve taken the plunge and you’re growing a moustache for Movember. You’ve received your membership to the ‘tache club and both Hulk Hogan and Tom Selleck were at your welcoming party. You had a pretty good time. By now you’re probably feeling more comfortable with your upper lip furnishing and looking to expand your horizons a little, but what more could possibly be done? Some moustache styling of course!

Here are my favourites as defined by the American Mustache Institute:

Handlebar
Any moustache that you style with wax and a comb is pretty amazing in my opinion. The handlebar must be long enough to be able to curl upwards at the end.

Horseshoe
Normally seen on truckers and 90s popstars, the Horseshoe extends from the regular dimensions of a moustache and curls around the mouth towards the chin.

Pyramidal
I am firmly of that belief that everyone who has a pyramidal moustache has a wardrobe full of suits. These are narrow on top, and wider at the bottom.

Pencil
Narrow, clipped and pretty hard to maintain, the Pencil is also known as the ‘mouthbrow’ as it makes your mouth look much more attractive.

Walrus
This is the moustache equivalent of ‘I just woke up looking this amazing’. Though it looks au natural and a little wild, this  style takes a lot of upkeep.

Dali
This is one for a creative soul. Very narrow and deeply curved, the Dali turns upwards like a little moustache smile.

Chevron
Thick and wide with minimum upkeep, this style is worn long to cover the top lip just slightly. Otherwise known as the dad mo.

Movember is a light hearted event with a serious motive: it raises much needed funds for men’s health, most specifically prostate cancer. In the UK, one man dies of prostate cancer every single hour, of every single day. This equates to more than 10,000 every year. With donations breaking the £11m ceiling last year, this year the power of the mo is set to be even more spectacular.
