Mustache Styles

Welcome to the world of mustaches, where style meets personality. Whether you're a seasoned 'stache stylist or a newbie to the game, navigating the vast sea of mustache styles can be daunting. But fear not! Here's a guide to the top 10 mustache styles that are making waves, along with a pro tip for those looking to tackle greys or enhance their mustache's fullness.

The Best 10 Mustache Trends

1. The Chevron:

Channel your inner Tom Selleck with this thick, wide mustache. It's straightforward yet striking, perfect for those who like to keep things classic.

2. The Pencil:

Slim and tidy, this style screams sophistication. Think Clark Gable – a mustache that's perfect for the refined gentleman.

3. The Handlebar:

For the daring at heart, the Handlebar boasts curled ends for a bold statement. Rollie Fingers' iconic look is a testament to its enduring charm.

4. The Walrus:

Bushy and bold, the Walrus, à la Sam Elliott, is for men who aren't afraid to make a statement with their facial hair.

5. The Horseshoe:

This style, reminiscent of Hulk Hogan, features long bars extending down from the corners of the mouth. It's rugged and unmistakably masculine.

6. The Fu Manchu:

An eccentric choice, this style dangles dramatically downward, adding an air of intrigue to your look.

7. The Painter's Brush:

A full, thick mustache that's neatly trimmed along the edge of the mouth. Brad Pitt has rocked this look with effortless cool.

8. The Dali:

Named after Salvador Dali, this thin, upward-curving mustache is for those who love to stand out from the crowd.

9. The Imperial:

Favored by Robert Downey Jr. in 'Sherlock Holmes', this regal style combines a mustache with a beard for a sophisticated yet edgy look.

10. The Van Dyke:

A creative blend of a goatee and a detached mustache, often sported by Johnny Depp, perfect for the artistic soul.
