Mr needs a moustache

By Sophie
Mr needs a moustache

Gone are the days of the metro-sexual poser; the real men have arrived

On a trendy high street near you The Man is back; sporting caveman bush to nippy handlebar-come-beard he can be casual, defined or decidedly dapper, but his marker of manliness is there.


Indeed, all of us ladies heave a sigh of relief and go weak for the whiskers as the smooth cheeked, shaven chest male exists, and the heritage gent steps through.

Do you want to be a real man? Then read on...

How do I get one?                                                             

The well-groomed moutaschio takes some serious work, but the first thing is to grow the little beastie! Refrain from shaving, obviously, and invest in some basic kit: soap, curved scissors, a small comb and a razor are a must.

What style is best for me?


Whilst your follicles go wild, you’ll need to have a style in mind; check out our Pinterest page for the best celeb looks old and new. However, if in doubt the handlebar, refined and resplendent, is a great option.

Will I need products?

Tame your creature daily with a decent coating of special wax. Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax is a classic, and is best applied with a small comb. For a guide on how to apply, watch the video below.

How do I maintain my tash?                            

Maintaining one’s facial fixture is essential. Straggly and unkempt, you’ll only end up looking like Dahl’s Mr. Twit as opposed to Mr. Suave.


Regular trips to your local master barber are recommended; these moustachioed men are your best bet at a real devilishly dandy look, and can be found in most major cities.

If in London, the birthplace of the beau, why not drop into Murdock, one of the best barbers in town? They sure know their stuff and all the styles you’ve seen in this piece were cultivated at their expert fingertips!
