Today I was supposed to be road-tripping to Ottawa with my boy, B, to visit some awesome palsies! But the weather forced us to reschedule for St. Patty’s weekend. I’m pretty bummed, but decided to make the best of it and cheer myself up by making a list of some MARVELOUS MEN WITH MUSTACHES! See, easy fix. Simple things always work best. Pass this on to any pals you have that are feeling bummed about winter too. Hopefully the warmth of these ‘staches will help to warm their hearts and souls ❤ Or at least provoke a chuckle or two? Clipped moustache.
I tried to use one example from a variety of mustache styles! Feel free to share your own fave ‘stached men in the comment section below! ENJOY!
#10. RON JEREMY. Ew. Rocks the Porn ‘Stache – greasy and ratty. No form, no styling aids necessary. Messy and unkempt.
#9. JACK LAYTON. This one is called the Proud Canadian – fully gray, or salt & pepper in colour. Neatly clipped; must be worn by a strong, caring, inspirational man in power. Rest in peace, sir.
#8. FREDDIE MERCURY. This is a classic Copstache – extends just beyond the corner of the mouth, and down slightly. Trimmed short. Accompanied by aviator shades and male tank top or cop uniform.

#7. JOHN WATERS. Can I tell you how much I love this man and his bizarre movies? And his bizarre mustache… know as the Pencil Mustache – narrow, straight and thin as if drawn on by a pencil, closely clipped, outlining the upper lip, with a wide shaven gap between the nose and mustache.
#6. BURT REYNOLDS. Um… I am too distracted by this terrifying photo to even talk about his mustache right now… moving on.
#5. HULK HOGAN. Horseshoe – Often confused with the Handlebar Mustache, the horseshoe was possibly popularized by modern cowboys and consists of a full mustache with vertical extensions from the corners of the lips down to the jawline and resembling an upside-down horseshoe. Also known as “biker mustache”.
#4: ROLLIE FINGERS. Solid example of the Handlebar – bushy, with upward pointing ends, sometimes curled.
#3: CHARLIE CHAPLIN. Toothbrush – thick, but shaved except for about an inch in the center; also associated with Adolf Hitler.
#2: SALVADOR DALI. ‘Nuff said. Look at those glorious peaks – this style of ‘stache is even named after him. Dalí – narrow, long points bent or curved steeply upward; areas past the corner of the mouth must be shaved. Artificial styling aids needed.
#1. TOM SELLECK. Has he ever NOT rocked this beautiful lip sweater? I can’t remember him without it…I believe this is classified as the Hungarian – Big and bushy, beginning from the middle of the upper lip and pulled to the side. The hairs are allowed to start growing from up to a maximum of 1.5 cm beyond the end of the upper lip.
Anyway, I feel better now. Nothing like a good mustache to brighten the day! I am off to craft, so I’ll leave you with The Daily Dress – from yesterday and today!
