If there is one thing I have learned since I’ve grown my mustache, it’s that I get a lot of compliments with it. People are always like “Bro, I love your mustache” “Your mustache looks great” and “Nice mustache”. It is one thing, among many, that makes my day. Seriously, if you see someone with a handlebar mustache or equivalent, tell them it looks good. We do it so it looks good, because we want to look good. When it is complimented, it helps our self-confidence. Confidence feels good, especially when it is for something that takes so much time and energy to achieve. How to grow an awesome mustache.
Throughout the years, a mustache has been a sign of masculinity and manhood. Now, I’m not saying that someone who cannot grow a mustache isn’t manly or masculine at all, but having one makes you feel more masculine. There is a certain empowerment to having a mustache.
One of the other great advantages to having a mustache is the ability to dress perfectly for Halloween. With a handlebar mustache, so many different personas can be accomplished. Being a 1920s strongman or a 1930s cartoon villain will be one of the easiest costumes to do. Dressing up as Wyatt Earp, Theodore Roosevelt, Ron Swanson, or Magnum will bring a new type of pride to the one who bears the costume.
Growing and upholding mustache is hard work. Every day, applying wax, combing it, caring for it. It can get tough, but it is so worth it. A mustache takes a lot of responsibility. Growing a mustache takes a certain amount of patience that not everybody has. It takes a certain amount of finesse to accomplish the perfect mustache. Growing a mustache takes discipline, and therefore teaches discipline. It also teaches detail orientation, organization, and creativity.
5. The Culture
Having a mustache is like being part of a culture. Those who have them know the struggles, the ups, the downs, and everything that comes to having a mustache. Those who have taken the time and given the patience to grow one, know that when they see another man with a mustache, there is a connection. It is a way to connect with others who share an interest. Having a mustache is like nothing else.
It's happened on more than one occasion.
The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.
New shaving style
Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.
Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.
1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.
I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.
2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.
Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.
3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.
Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.
4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.
Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.
I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.
6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.
This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.
7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.
One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.
8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.
Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.
9. A v-neck.
Another one of my favorites.
10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).
Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.
70s moustache styles
As I headed back to college this year I made the decision to chop all of my hair off again. I had done it once two years before then, towards the beginning of my senior year of high school. At the time, I absolutely loved it. Ever since third grade, my hair had always been long. But this time, it was different. I chopped it again in an effort to try and renew myself, and prepare myself for the coming school year. Little did I know, this second time around would not be as pleasant as the first time. Now as I scour the internet for homemade remedies for how to grow your hair faster, these are the top 10 cutest hairstyles I could find until my hair grows back.
