This is a thick and wide mustache that covers the top border of the upper lip. Though it’s usually worn long, don’t let it grow so long that it mixes with your lunch – trim it up with a pair of Zwilling/J.A. Henckels Moustache Scissors. Wrangle your mustache and keep it crumb-free by running through it with the compact Kent 81T Moustache and Beard Comb. Keep your follicles moisturized and uber-soft with a bit of Bluebeards Original Beard Saver. When you’re done, you’ll have a ‘stache so fine it could make a wolverine purr. ( photo credit )
