  • Shampoo regularly. As becoming as they are, moustaches collect things and no matter how fine the food, it doesn’t belong in your Mo.
  • Moustache hair is coarse and benefits from regular conditioning. Massage your Mo with a dollop of conditioner then rinse thoroughly. It will make it softer to touch to both you and your intimate friends.
  • Use a hot wash cloth to steam and cleanse the skin under your moustache that can suffer from drying and itching.





From prehistoric times to now, the moustache has evolved from a roughly hewn block of hair into a genuine work of art. They've theoretically been possible since flint razors were first fashioned around 30,000 B.C, although it’s unknown whether or not Stone Age man actually sported the first ever example of upper-lip topiary. What is known is that the oldest portrait showing a shaved man with a moustache is an ancient Iranian horseman from 300 BC.

The popularity of the moustache in society has been a long journey full of ups and downs. Over the course of history, men with facial hair have been ascribed various attributes such as wisdom, sexual virility, masculinity, or a higher status. Equally, the moustache has fallen on less illustrious times and it's popularity has dwindled as a result of being sported by some notorious dictators of the world. That said, the moustache has proved itself to be resilient and just when it's thought that they've been resigned to the halls of history, a cultural revolution will swing the pendulum back and usher in a new day for moustaches. After all, the moustache is king.

Never a truer word was spoken when a wise man said, 'the moustache maketh the man.' Take a look at the great men who have, and continue, to walk, the hallowed halls of fame, proudly sporting a moustache - all of whom recognise and understand the power of the moustache.

  • Invest in the right equipment. A man of fine and serious moustachery should have a pair of barber scissors for precise trimming, a fine-toothed comb for guidance, a bright and large mirror for a good view, a razor, a steady hand and a sensible mind.
  • Dampen the moustache hair to trim. It is important to note that wet hair does bounce up when dry.
  • Using a fine-toothed comb, tidy your moustache so the hairs run in the direction you intend them to and lasso any strays into line.
  • Outline in your mind the shape of your moustache using your eye or the existing shape that needs to be freshened up.
  • Using the barber scissors, trim longer and stray hairs on the outer edge and bottom line of your moustache. You may wish to use a finger to hold or the fine toothed comb as a barber would to hold the hair as you trim. Trim conservatively. You can always go over it again.
  • Run the clippers over the body of the Mo to get a consistent and even level of bush and bounce.
  • Finish with a sharp razor to highlight the outer lines.
  • For more elaborate styles, use a fine and appropriate moustache wax to shape the remaining hair into place.
     

How to grow a Mo:

  • Ask yourself the question, who do you want to be? For every style of moustache there is a different personality. You will become that man, you will be treated as that man and you will act like that man. It's important you like who he is.
  • Be brave. The first few days, even weeks, can be uncomfortable and a little awkward as your facial goodness grows and your Mo takes shape.
  • Ignore the itching. Remind yourself that other men have endured worse in the past; surely you can stand a little face tickle from your Mo.
  • Start to shape your moustache using proper grooming techniques. A great Mo comes down to grooming.
  • Look after your Mo. Fertilize it, keep it clean and keep it neat.

Foods to approach with caution when sporting a Mo:

  • Cappuccino
  • Glass of milk
  • Irish Cream Ale, Guinness or any brew served with a fine creamy mousse
  • Caramel Apples
  • Spaghetti
  • Hand-held happy hour foods
  • Corn on the cob
  • Tacos
