5 tips to style your Movember:
Clean & Scrub
Equivalent to the hair on your head your moustache still needs regular cleansing. Daily grime dust and food can easily build up and leave an unpleasant odour. Simply use your regular facial wash to cleanse your moustache.
Shave & Trim
With there being so many styles to choose from maintaining your chosen style is what’s key and will require some precocious equipment. Use a beard trimmer to carefully sculpt your moustache, for those stray longer hairs use manicure scissors to carefully snip and use transparent gel when shaving around your moustache this will make it easier to see where to and where not to shave.
Condition & Hydrate
Facial hair can draw hydration from skin causing skin below your moustache to become dry and patchy. Moisturising this skin can be tricky as you cannot always get to the dry patches, the solution for this is a dedicated beard hydrator.
Comb & Style
After meals free your moustache from unwanted attachments with a comb. Also a comb will ensure facial hair is neat and tidy.
Wax & Style
Whether you decide to wear a complicated moustache style or a more simple it is still essential you invest in moustache wax. If you go for twizzled ends it will keep them in place and ensure you moustache stays neat and styled. Don’t forget it’s only similar to the hair on your head and can become unruly if not tamed.
