Must-Read: The Most Vital Grooming Tips
In this day and age of hipster chic and people getting away with all kinds of strange hairstyles and facial hair moves, there are two ways you can get by: You can not groom, and give off the impression that you are so relaxed with the world and don’t really have a care in the world. Or you can look like you’re NOT HOMELESS. For obvious reasons, we choose to go the second route. Which is why today we’re heading over to AskMen.com where they have an interview with a French barber about all of your grooming questions.
For example, here’s what he says if you’re one of those clever hipsters who are wielding about a mustache:
What tools do you absolutely need to maintain a mustache?
You need a boar’s hair brush and a little balm if you want to have it look neat. The current trend is a little bit of a thick moustache that descends just below the top of the lip, until it’s almost hiding the lip. There are two types — the one that’s ever so slightly above the lip, with a thin line above the lip. But what we see more often is to leave the moustache more natural.
If you have a thin lip, you can camouflage your lip a little bit, make it seem bigger by having a thicker moustache above it. You can’t let your facial hair overgrow its original shape. You have to maintain the lines daily, otherwise when you go to shave, the razor won’t catch the hair evenly and you’ll have a jagged line. Especially in the morning, when you’re not completely awake yet, you want to have a clean line to follow.
But the advice goes beyond just the silly little hair on the top of your lip. Head on over to the link to check out the rest of the vital information, and then get to grooming gents.
