Classic Mexican Mustache:
‘Old is Gold’ and classic seems to be the tend of the present. Kind of odd but hey, I won’t complain as the classic Mexican mustache has aged like wine.
- Like always, the first step is to stop shaving and embracing nature.
- Let the upper be rich and thick with hair.
- Keep it growing until the hair starts to reach where you can connect it with the stubble.
- It’s not necessary but you can attach the stubble with the lower part of the mustache to complement it even further.
- Short hair and a very short beard will look dapper.
Most of the Mexicans you’ll encounter will be wearing at least a beard or a mustache but occasionally, you can spot some who are wearing a thin mustache that looks like someone has drawn it with a pencil.
Most of us instantly think of thick and heavy when we hear the word mustache but here’s a thing: not everyone can grow that.
Luckily you can show the world that you are macho with just a thin and sleek line between your upper lips and nose.
Growing a pencil beard is easy here’s how;
- Use a trimmer to get to the desired length.
- Shave off the trimmed hair.
- Further use of clippers can impart extra cleanliness.
The famous Horseshoe Mustache:
Horseshoe mustache, the symbol of the bold and the brave, can suit you. You might remember it from the famous superstar, Hulk Hogan.
Thick lines of hair flowing from either side of the lips can make you look biker boy in no time.
Horseshoes are considered to be good luck and if you believe that your luck is going to bump out the roofs by:
- Choosing a specific length comb for trimmer
- After you have trimmed, the next step is angling. Trim carefully the area from where the mustache will go downwards.
- Shave off the trimmed hair and wash your face with cold water.
- You are ready to experience crazy levels of luck now.
Also known as spaghetti and often referred towards biker because of its striking resemblance with handles, handlebar mustache is a large group of family.
You need time though. 90 to 120 days to be exact. But don’t be discouraged as your mustache will go through many phases until it reaches its final form. And each phase will have its own look and won’t look bad.
- Let the hair grow and don’t trim near the lower lips.
- Make sure to brush and style your mustache once it gets to that length.
- Mustache oil and mustache wax can speed up the process.
- Apply some wax when styling to get that flip
These Mustache go well with these Beard Styles:
Some of these mustache styles are going to look good on their own while others tend to mix super well with a light or in some cases, very long and heavy beard.
The general rule of thumb is that if you are looking towards a handlebar and other thick styles, like a horseshoe, both a smaller and a denser beard will look good. But with other styles, like pencil – shaped mustache, you are going to be better off with a less bulky beard style.
Goatee + Classic Mexican Mustache:
Classic Mexican mustache tends to become thicker as it grows. So, you can choose different variations of beard to compliment it in different phases.
Opt for a smaller goatee in the center when the mustache is in its growing phase. As it becomes thicker and murkier, you can opt for a longer goatee.
Attached temples + sleek Pencil mustache:
Your options are countless in terms of mustache variations with pencil mustache but beard styles, not so much.
A pencil mustache can look good with an attached French. Both the mustache and the beard must be thin for this to work.
Another look can be using temples and lower jawline hair to create a nice crescent shape.
Long Beard + Handlebar:
Handlebar goes with pretty much anything from clean shave to bulky and massive beard. Handlebar in early phases tends to have lower flips and a clean shave can do the trick.
The good thing about Mexican mustache and beard styles is the options. Take handlebar, for instance, a fully grown handlebar can’t be any classier with an overgrown beard. Styling and optimizing with a mustache wax can take you from zero to hero.
Combined Horseshoe Mustache and French:
When looking at horseshoe mustache, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it naturally resembles French. So, why not give it what it deserves, right?
The plus point is that it only requires a little effort. You don’t need to do a whole lot in this case as the mustache will do 90 percent of the work itself.
All you have to do is to make the sides neat and clean and you are done.
The next step is shaving off the jazz dot and the rest of the beard (Considering that you let it grow for a while).
Mexicans have somewhat Spanish ties and Spaniard blood. So, in turn, the Mexican mustache and beard styles represent their bloodline of thick beards and murky mustache.
The bottom line is that these styles aren’t going to suit everyone so you can choose any one of the above styles that works for you.
Moreover, what you can do is change the length and thickness and rock hundreds of different variations of each one.
