CNC-RR003-Candy Moustache Resizable Rings

handlebar moustache is a moustache named for its resemblance to the handlebars of a bicycle.

The first recorded appearance of a moustache dates back to around 300 B.C. but it is difficult to say when the first handlebar moustache was fashioned.

The handlebar moustache was in vogue throughout the late 1800s. It became a cliche of Western films in twentieth century America, and the Western is now the most common association with the style.

In Europe, handlebar moustaches were often worn by soldiers during the 18th century through roughly the World War I era. The higher a man’s rank, the more elaborate of a moustache he was permitted to wear. It follows that handlebar moustaches would only have been acceptable for high ranking officers.

A handlebar moustache does not include any facial hair on the chin or cheeks; it is solely a moustache. This separates the handlebar from several other types of facial hair, most notably the Fu Manchu moustache.

Characterized by the ends of the moustache that curl upward, the handlebar moustache is a fantastic way to be a bit cool. Here are the steps to grow one cool handlebar moustache:

  • Stop shaving your upper lip for at least six weeks. 
  • Buy yourself a can/bottle of moustache wax.
  • Create a “center parting” in the moustache by combing the moustache hair out from under the nose to the left and to the right respectively. Do it once a day.
  • Trim the center of your moustache with scissors while allowing the ends of your moustache to continue to grow long. 
  • Apply the moustache wax to each side of the moustache and roll it between your fingers back and forth so that you create long slicked hairs.
  • Curl the hair of your moustache at the end using a pen, toothpaste cap or other small round object. Wind the hairs as tightly as possible repetitively. Once you remove the pen or your toothpaste cap, the ends of the moustache will snap curl into perfect handlebars.
