“Sweet mustache.” - Some dude on the street.
I went to shave my mustache after Movember. Right as I was about to clear my upper lip of the joke that is my facial hair I heard a faint, “Don’t shave it, I kind of like it” from Jamie across the room. I looked at myself in the mirror, shrugged with an agreeing smile and put the razor down. I have learned about my mustache over the last few weeks. The left side likes to play ball and stay styled, while right side on the other hand does whatever it wants. I have to give him a pep talk every morning.
I am noticing more and more there is a unspoken bond between gentlemen who take their beards and staches seriously. It’s like how you let someone merge into your lane if you have the same car and shoot them a wave as they pass. Just this week alone I have been complimented by 3 to 4 total strangers with similar staches. I even got a thumbs up/finger gun/wink combo from a random on the street who had an obvious obsession with his stach.
It has been 2 months now and it is getting out of control, I had to do something so I started looking into products that could possibly tame this beast and make me look more gentlemanly. Luckily, Christmas was right around the corner and Jamie hooked it up with some sweet stache accessories to keep me looking fly.
Products I am currently using: Can You HandleBar Wax, Pugilist Beard Balm and my trusty Stache Comb. The trick is you use the comb to straighten it out, apply some balm to the middle and work through and put wax on the ends for hold. Never. Ever. Trim. Just train it.
Thanks for being apart of my first attempt and manly facial hair!
