My boss hates it, but I told him that I was a Charlie Chaplin fan, and I’d be quite happy to trim it into that style. He’s not complained since. LOL.
- What are some of the funny or strange comments others have made about your handlebar moustache over time?
Not really had any comments from people, apart from complements, and questions about waxing the tips.
- Has having a handlebar moustache had any effects on your personality/behavior, attitude, self-expression, sense of self?
Nope, I’m still the usual me.
- What is it in your personality that drew you to growing a handlebar moustache?
I’m somewhat unconventional. As you can see from the photo. I’m also a skydiver, and anything that is a bit unusual goes down well at the drop zone.
- Have you been in any moustache contests or attended any such gatherings?
- It takes courage to wear a handlebar moustache. What would you say to those who think you look odd, silly or stupid with it?
I really don’t care what other people think.
- What waxes, styling aids or glues to you prefer and why?
Only used Bounders wax, it works for me.
- What do you think a handlebar moustache does for a man?
Adds a touch of uniqueness maybe.
- How attached are you to your handlebar moustache and what would it take for you to cut it off or remove the curls and not grow it back?
I’m not amazingly attached.
- Have you accumulated any moustached merchandise, shirts, mugs or other stuff?
- All about color: How closely does your moustache match the color of the hair on your head? How many colors are in your moustache? Do you like its color? Have you ever dyed it?
It matches the colour of the hair on my head. Bright green.
I have to use peroxide bleach first and then a green dye.
- What would you like to see on handlebarmoustachelife.com?
- How has having a handlebar moustache affected your love life, dating, and does it interfere with kissing?
No affect whatsoever.
- What do you do for a living and what impact do you think your handlebar moustache has with customers, coworkers and superiors?
My boss doesn’t like it, but then again, there isn’t much that he likes anyway.
- Does your handlebar moustache give you any superpowers?
I wish it did!
- Eating – neatly – can be a challenge with a larger moustache. Do you have any eating tips, or stories to share? Have you been tempted to remove the HB due to eating issues?
No problems with eating, but sometimes the tache drinks more beer than I do.
- Have you ever styled your mustache in a comical manner or specifically for a Halloween costume?
- What is your preferred style for your handlebar moustache, and do you do a variety of styles?
Usually I have the ends either curled traditional style, or spiked like Salvadore Dali. Sometimes I spike a smaller set of curls from under my nose, so it looks like my tache has grown it’s own tache.
- Would you share your location and / or your age?
Stockport, United Kingdom. Age 39
