A moustache is defined as a growth of hair that sits on the upper lip, below the nose. However, to the men who grow them and the women who love them, a moustache is a style statement and the most manly accessory you can wear and won’t cost you a penny. The moustache is every man’s best friend
There are many different styles of moustaches from which to choose. If you don’t fancy a full face of fuzz, then why not try the 118 look ( got your number )? Here are a few we have picked
A thick and wide mustache, usually worn long to cover the top border of the upper lip.
A narrow moustache with long points bent or curved steeply upward. Named for artist Salvador Dali.
A moustache that begins on the upper lip and whose whiskers are grown very long to extend down each side of the mouth to the to jaw. The areas just past the corners of the mouth are shaven, thus differentiating this style from the “horseshoe” (see below).
A full moustache with vertical extensions grown on the corners of the lips and down the sides of the mouth to the jawline, resembling an upside-down horseshoe. The whiskers grown along the sides of the mouth in the horseshoe are sometimes referred to as “pipes.” Not to be confused with the Fu Manchu which is grown long from the upper lip only– the sides remain shaven in the Fu Manchu.
A handlebar moustache can be worn large or small (“petit handlebar”). It is characterized by the fact that it is bushy and must be worn long enough to curl the ends upward, which is usually achieved with styling wax.
A large moustache growing from both the upper lip and cheeks, whiskers from the cheeks are styled pointing upward.
A moustache similar to the painter’s brush but with corners angled slightly, resembling the shape of a lampshade.
A thin, narrow, closely clipped moustache that outlines the upper lip. Pencil style moustaches can be trimmed in different manners (see below). Also sometimes called a mouthbrow.
A general name for moustaches shaped narrow on top and wide on the bottom, like a pyramid. Pyramidal moustaches can be shaped in a variety of ways, as shown below.
A thick moustache, shaved to be about an inch wide in the centre.
A large, bushy, droopy moustache that hangs down over the lips, often entirely covering the mouth.
