5 Moustache Styles for Men to Try!

A facial hair style that makes a little hair go a long way, the moustache remains an iconic look that can add stylish flair to any man’s face. This style is a delicate art, as it’s going to take careful shaping with your electric shaver. Luckily, Braun’s precision trimmers are armed with a range of attachments to make detail edging to style your new facial hair style look smooth and simple. In this article we’ll run through some of the most popular and enduring moustache styles and show you how to trim a moustache expertly.

The moustache with stubble

The moustache with stubble

If you are looking for beard and moustache styles then this is the one for you! A moustache with stubble is an attractive combination. It not only looks smart but it's also easy to maintain. This look compliments your 3-day beard.

How to get this style:

  1. Start with a 2cm length of upper lip hair growth.

  2. For your stubble, shave against the grain down to a length of somewhere between 1mm and 3mm. Learn more on how to stubble. Use the Braun Series XT5 Trimmer & Shaver which has a 4D blade technology. The blades are built to last longer up to 6 months. You can easily get your desired length with the click-on combs in 1, 2, 3 and 5 mm for the face and 0 mm (SkinGuard) for the body.

  3. To shape the moustache, remove the beard comb and directly use the beard trimmer’s head.

  4. Start wide on either side of the lips and work down to get a tidy look.

Best for which face shapes: Stubble with a moustache suits all face shapes, particularly oval.

The handlebar moustache

The Handlebar Moustache

Want to push the boat out with a thick moustache? There’s a few ways to make a statement with the hair on your upper lip and one of them is most definitely the handlebar moustache.

Compared with our minimal and easy stubble pairing, the handlebar extends beyond the edges of your lips and curves up on your cheeks to give it the distinctive shape which its name comes from. This moustache style definitely isn’t a 3-day commitment – to get this look you’ll want to grow out your facial hair for at least a month, but it may take you even longer to get the length needed for styling.

Our styling tip is to comb your moustache hair as it grows out to get the direction of growth you’re looking for and it will make styling the handlebar a lot easier.

If you find this look is your ideal type of moustache and want to take it further, you can grow a hipster beard to accompany it – one of our top picks for modern long beard styles.

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.

  4. Prep your skin for shaving. Give yourself a close shave in the areas mentioned in step one.

  5. Use the Braun PT 5010 Precision Trimmer to define the edges of your horseshoe moustache. The ergonomic design of this trimmer makes it easy to handle. It comes with two comb attachments 5 and 8mm. You can also easily clean the head and combs under running water.

Best for which face shapes: The horseshoe moustache style looks attractive on a round face shape.

The moustache and goatee

The Moustache And Goatee

This beard and moustache pairing is a match made in facial hair heaven, and differs from the traditional goatee in a couple of important ways. Unlike the full goatee, with this look the moustache and beard on your chin are unconnected. This makes it a great fit if you’ve got good growth lower down your face but not on your cheeks.

This look has been sported by the likes of 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. Braun’s precision detailing attachment will make a great tool to help you do this delicately and keep the growth you’ve got going on. If you know a fuller beard look is the one for you, check out our step by step guide on how to shape a full goatee.
