Some say a man without a mustache is a man without a soul

written by Shane McCarthy

The mustache has been a classic symbol of manhood, strength, and style for centuries. Did you know that during the Victorian era, a well-groomed mustache was seen as the manifestation of elevated social status? While fashion trends come and go, an epic mustache is forever! Today we’re excited to bring you our top choices for awe-inspiring mustaches – so get ready to let your inner gentleman shine through with some genuinely enviable facial hair designs.  Whether you’re after something subtle like an understated pencil stache or full-on handlebar glory – we’ve got you covered.


How to Grow a Handlebar Mustache?

The first step to growing your new mustache is deciding on a goal. Growing a handlebar can be frustrating until you’ve achieved it, so prepare yourself beforehand not to look back. Be patient while you progress through the awkward stages. It may also take a while for you to get used to the way it tickles your nose or dips into your drinks. Rest assured, eventually you won’t think about it.

The length of your mustache-growing process depends on long you want it to be, your diet and vitamin intake, and your natural hair-growing rate. However, plan on it taking at least three months. If you are worried about how it will look as it progresses, consider growing a full beard alongside it that you can choose to shave or keep later.
