The handlebar moustache

The Handlebar Moustache

In the yesteryears, the handlebar moustache was one of the most worn Indian moustache styles. The charm of this style hasn’t faded yet. Right from ‘A’ list Bollywood celebrities like Ranveer Singh to finest cricketers like Shikhar Dhawan, they’ve pulled off this moustache style with lots of ease. Now, it’s time for you to go all-in with this twirling, glorious-looking moustache style.

How to get this style:

  1. Grow out your facial hair for at least a month, but it may take longer to get the length needed for styling.

  2. Once your moustache is long enough, you need to shape it.

  3. Part it down the middle of your lip and comb it half away from your nose. To make sure your moustache stays in place, apply some moustache wax. You can also blow dry it to help it hold the shape.

Best for which face shapes: The handlebar moustache style works well for men with triangle or diamond face shapes.

The horseshoe moustache

The Horseshoe Moustache

Want one of the moustache styles that’s eye-catching? Then the horseshoe moustache should be on your list. It brings to mind a hard-edged cowboy out on the ranch, with both its name and its wild curved look. This style of moustache also had a comeback in popularity in the 1970s and with a bit of styling know-how, it’s a retro moustache that’s going to let you stand out from the crowd.

How to get this style:

  1. Trim all hair from the centre of your chin, your upper cheeks and your beard neckline.

  2. Make the hair length of your moustache even with the trimmer.

  3. Remove the comb attachment and use the trimmer to define the shape.

Don’t want to give up on your beard completely? This combination of moustache and goatee is the perfect pick for you. This look has been sported by the likes of Hollywood actors like Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. If you want to follow in their footsteps, you should trim the edges of the moustache and goatee once you’ve let it grow out to its full length.

How to get this style:

  1. Use the Braun MGK7331 All-in-1 Beard Trimmer to trim your beard to 10 mm. It comes with short and long comb attachments that help you trim down in the 0.5 mm stage.

square-shaped faces.
