The major difference between the actors of the golden age of Bollywood and the contemporary age is the reduction of class and the loss of a moustache. A well-kempt moustache is what differentiated a boy from a man in those days. After a large period of facial hair bashing, it has made a comeback in recent years, and so has the classic moustache. Take a look at the 8 macho moustaches that you can try out in 2019!
1. The Tom Selleck :
The legendary moustache that Mr Selleck could wear and flaunt in his sow Magnum P.I. is what made him internationally famous for his moustache. Let the upper line hairs grow longer and clip the lower line in a straight line. Maintaining a substantial thickness, you need to trim the upper part such that it appears to be tapering towards the centre of the nose. Regular combing and waxing is required.
2. The Walrus :
As the name suggests, this one looks like the one sported by the magnificent sea creature. Low on maintenance, you need to let upper hairs grow long and wild for five to six months as they grow towards downwards and sideways.
3. The pencil :
Sleek, neat and chic, this one deserves to be a businessman’s favourite type. Rocked by the mafia and suave heroes on the big screen in the late ’30s and ’40s, this style has been sported by the likes of Hollywood heartthrobs such as Clark Gable and Errol Flynn. You need to maintain it regularly by shaving the upper line of the moustache and keeping it ‘pencil’ thin. You need to shave a little in the middle section as well to give it a refined look.
4. The Handlebar :
The most favourite type to be sported in the current style scene, this one has been sported by many social media influencers. The growth on the sides needs to be long, and you’ll need wax to curl it up and keep it in shape. Its gentlemanly look has got girls going gaga over guys who sport it!
5. The scruff :
The one with the least maintenance, you need to grow it out wild and without direction. Else, you can keep it short and simple. The whole point is to give it a messy look. Mostly flaunted by hippies and artists, you can combine it with an additional goatee to complete the hipster look, showing off your wild and carefree attitude towards life.
6. The Fu Machu :
If you’ve watched Chinese Kung fu movies then you know what we’re talking about. Like two curtains framing your lips, you need to grow out the sides of the moustache long. Then you might need to straighten them down and apply wax or pomade to hold on to its sleek shape.
7. The Salvatore Dali :
Invented and made popular by legendary artist Salvatore Dali, he once stated that his moustache was the most serious element of his entire look. And we think, he said it in a sarcastic way, as it’s quite actually the opposite. Fun and quirky, it still appears to be very gentlemanly. You need to grow out the sides of the moustache and wax them straight upwards, pointing to the sky.
8. The Horseshoe :
The horseshoe is a very manly type of moustache styled and made popular by cowboys. You need a little help from your beard to sport this one. The moustache needs to be well trimmed as it moves downwards from the ends of the moustache region towards the edge of your jawline framing your lips. It looks like a half French beard without the chin.
Exuding class, and a gentlemanly spirit, the moustache needs to be given a try. Give our personality a major touch of manliness by sporting one!
