In order to choose a moustache style, you have to decide what you want to either enhance or minimize on your face. And of course it goes without saying that you need to know what kind of facial hair genes you ancestors bestowed upon you before you attempt to grow a moustache. If you don’t have much facial hair, you could have a moustache transplant. In the Middle East, many men are undergoing a procedure called follicular unit extraction in order to achieve an impressive facial hair look. But if you decide to grow your own, you need to take three things into consideration: width, direction and weight. The chevron moustache.

The Horseshoe Moustache looks like an upside-down horseshoe, or goatee with the bottom center removed. It is not good for men with narrow faces. A horseshoe is supposed to show that you are aggressively indifferent and you will have to be bold to use one.
The Pencil – aka the Mouthbrow – is a vintage moustache and it lines the upper lip. Because it has to be kept as thin and straight as a pencil, it needs to be trimmed regularly and very carefully.
The Walrus Moustache is a statement. It looks like a walrus of course and sometimes covers the mouth. You need to have a lot of facial hair in order to grow it long and drooping, and stylists generally agree that you shouldn’t have any other facial hair apparent in order for your walrus to stand out.
