How to Grow a Dali Moustache

How to Grow a Dali Moustache | King C. Gillette UK

Salvador Dali is not only famous for his surrealist art, but also his unique facial hairstyle. Dali’s moustache is incredibly long, thin and droops down past the chin – or indeed up towards the top of the head, depending on how it’s styled.

Dali was certainly a quirky character, riding the Paris Metro accompanied by an anteater and keeping an ocelot as a pet, so this facial hairstyle suited his personality perfectly.

If you’ve got the personality to pull off this unusual moustache style, here’s everything you need to know about growing your very own Dali moustache.

How to Shape a Dali Moustache

Growing a Dali moustache is easy to begin with as you just need to sit back and let your whiskers grow. Keep your chin and cheeks clean-shaven and focus on growing out your moustache – ideally, you want your whiskers to be at least 5cm long.

To get that clean-shaven look on the rest of your face, always lather up using the King C. Gillette Transparent Shave Gel, which allows you to see exactly where you’re shaving, before using your beard trimmer or razor.

To prevent the ends of your moustache from getting in the way of your mouth, style them with wax and curl them into something resembling a handlebar moustache.

When you’ve got your desired length, use the precision blade on the back of your razor to carefully shape your moustache as thinly as possible, in a similar way to how you’d style a pencil moustache, but make sure you keep the length. Go slowly – precision is key for this look and you don’t want to remove a chunk that’s too big, leaving you having to start the growing process all over again.

When shaping your moustache, begin at the top of your upper lip directly underneath your nose, leaving a narrow strip along the upper lip. Shave off the corners of your moustache directly above the corners of your mouth – the distinctive long ends of the Dali moustache should begin around 1cm from the corners of your mouth.

Finally, shave off a thin strip of hair directly underneath your nose – the Dali moustache should be in two separate sections.

How to Look After Your Dali Moustache

Keep the area around and underneath your Dali moustache clean by using our King C. Gillette Beard & Face Wash, which is designed not just to care for your facial hair, but your skin too.

Use wax or a styling product like our King C. Gillette Beard Balm to shape the ends of your Dali moustache into that distinctive pointed shape – let them hang down towards your chin or twirl them upwards in the direction of your eyes.

The Dali moustache requires a bold personality to pull it off. If this facial hairstyle isn’t for you, try out one of these instead:
