Unless you prefer the au naturale look, trimming your mustache once a week is essential. If you have a thick mustache it's especially important to learn how to trim mustache hair for a well-groomed appearance. The following mustache trimming tips for men with mustaches explain exactly what to do in a few simple steps to get the best results. Use a small, sharp mustache scissor and a fine-toothed mustache comb. Make sure both tools have large enough handles so they're comfortable to hold.
Using scissors and a comb allows detailed control and is recommended when first learning how to groom a mustache and determine the best style. But later on an electric mustache trimmer may prove more convenient. There are many models for men with mustaches to choose from. One of the best mustache trimmer models based on customer reviews is the Gillette mustache trimmer.
When gray hairs start showing up in your mustache there are several ways to color them:
Many men with mustaches find temporary brush in color products easy to apply and convenient to use. Simply take one with you wherever you go and apply whenever it's needed. Best of all, coloring and shading can be brushed in with better precision and detail, resulting in a more natural look. If you prefer a gradual color change that's less noticeable, brush in color works best. Just increase the coverage slowly until you get desired results.
Semi or permanent hair dye products can effectively replace gray if used correctly. Coarse facial hair absorbs chemical dyes very well, so results may turn out darker than expected. Try a color two shades lighter than your head hair color. Men with mustaches should always perform a skin and allergy test first to avoid products that may cause itching or burning. Apply dye in a well-ventilated area. Don't use a product formulated for coloring hair on your head, always use one specifically made for facial hair. Using small mustache brushes apply coloring agent lightly to hair only, don't rub into skin. Protect skin around mustache by rubbing vaseline on first.
Clubman moustache wax products are used not only to help hold a mustache style and shape, but also to color it. Popular colors are Clubman brown moustache wax and Clubman black moustache wax. Although not for everyone, it's an option worth trying if you're waxing your mustache already to maintain it's shape. Waxing tends to make a mustache appear heavier and thicker. Be sure to invest in a pair of quality tweezerman moustache scissors and a moustache comb to keep it well-groomed.
