In this article we give you some tips for choosing a custom mustache…
What is the » movement «?
For those who don’t know yet, the move is an event organized every year in November by the Movember Foundation Charity . It consists of… letting the mustache grow! (by the way to register, you are here) This in order to increase public awareness of male diseases such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, but also mental health and suicide prevention; this in order to encourage better care by health services and raise funds for research.
Here’s a very good reason to become a gentleman with the mustache!
To every man, his mustache!
There are so many different shapes of mustaches, enough to get lost… So if you’re struggling to find THE mustache that suits your face perfectly, here are our tips.
You must choose your mustache according to the shape of your face, but also to your temperament, to your style.
What mustache for what face?
Here is a topo on the best mustache and face shape combinations.
for square faces
The mustache’s job here will be to counteract the angular lines of your face. To do this, you can opt for a safe bet that suits everyone, the original, discreet and well-trimmed mustache, in the Jonathan Rhys Meyers style. But you can also opt for a handlebar mustache whose rounded shape will soften your straight features.
For oval faces
For oval faces, the idea is to choose a mustache big enough to rebalance the lower part of the face, but not too big. Let’s see… the one you need is without a doubt the pencil mustache! (IMHO the sexiest of mustaches).
for round faces
Here, the goal of your stach-slack will be to stretch face down. And for that you can count on the royal beard, which combines a mustache with a beard seal. If that doesn’t speak to you, it’s the goatee that Johnny Depp has been sporting proudly for years. In any case, avoid overly imposing mustaches that will further accentuate the roundness of your face.
for big noses
If you want to soften a nose that’s a little too big for your liking, get a thick, wide mustache, such as the brush mustache (à la Magnum), the handlebar mustache, or straight up the Gallic mustache. This will certainly reduce the «big fire» effect. In any case, avoid thin mustaches, which will put even more emphasis on your nose.
to highlight your lips
To highlight your lips, you will not have to go far. There’s nothing like a mustache brush or pencil to delicately highlight the curve of your lips…
Your mustache should embrace your personality
Tell me what mustache you wear, I’ll tell you who you are… The mustache you choose to wear must also correspond to the style you adopt, but more broadly to your temperament. If you’re more of the understated type or still not quite sure about the mustache trick, go for a funky mustache. If you are used to wearing a more well-groomed look, the pencil mustache will multiply your elegance by ten. And then, if you’re more of a crazy or… unexpected look type, there’s the Dalí or Morse mustache!
And if you lack facial hair…
If you lack hair, there is no miracle… Do not be too ambitious with the shape of your mustache. It favors fine mustaches, a downward mustache style a la Timothée Chalamet. The ultra-sexy effect of the mustache will also hit the mark…
How to do to grow a mustache?
It depends on which team you belong to. If you have a good pick, you just have to get to work… If, on the other hand, you are used to being clean shaven, start by arming yourself with a little patience until you reach a good length of 2 millimeters
