How to Trim a Moustache: The Original Stache

Moustache Grooming – The Original Stache

There’s a good reason why the classic, original moustache is an iconic and versatile look. It’s simple, clean, and easy on the eyes. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look.

The Original Stache Look

There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a moustache will be complicated. Here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the classic original Stache style:

Step 1: Select a Fixed-Length Comb for Trimming

The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your look. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.

Step 2: Trim Your Facial Hair

Even out your moustache hair length with the trimmer.

Step 3: Define Your Moustache Shape

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your moustache to define the shape. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and this can help prevent clogged blades.

Step 4: Check for Symmetry As You Go

But be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.

Step 5: Prep Your Face

Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare—the non-Stache parts—with a shave gel. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.

Step 6: Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes

Attach the razor blades attachment onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes, to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5™ blade refill fits with STYLER.

Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Often

Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent the buildup of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.

Step 8: Edge with the Precision Trimmer

On the back of all Fusion5 razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the moustache shape and achieve clean edges.

Step 9: Rinse, Towel, and Moisturise

Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion or balm to help soothe your skin.

You have just mastered the Original Stache style!

With Gillette razors and trimmers, your personal grooming possibilities are endless.
