Growing a handlebar moustache is a bold move – it’s a facial hair style that certainly makes a statement.
This style first became popular in the late 19th century – today, you’re more likely to find it accompanying a hipster beard.
A handlebar moustache suits a quirky personality perfectly. If you like your facial hair long, this is a great way to experiment with your look.
Here’s our guide to growing, styling, waxing and maintaining a handlebar moustache for facial hair that makes you feel like the best version of you:
How Long Does it Take to Grow a Handlebar Moustache?
It might only take a few days for you to grow a moustache usually, but it could take months for you to get that distinctive handlebar look, especially if you’re starting from scratch.
You’ll need to be patient to grow a handlebar moustache – be prepared for a lot of trimming as your hair grows longer to keep it from creeping over your top lip.
However, be mindful that there might be a few days (or even weeks) where you have to put up with slightly odd-looking facial hair while your ends get steadily longer – it’ll all be worth it in the end though!
How to Trim a Handlebar Moustache
Keep on top of your facial hair as you grow it out with the King C. Gillette Beard Trimmer, which is ideal for trimming everything from your eyebrows to your nasal hair and moustache. If you use scissors, you won’t be able to achieve anywhere near as much precision.
