8. It takes courage to wear a handlebar moustache. What would you say to those who think you look odd, silly or stupid with it?

Be your own person. I don’t care what others think or like an neither should they. Express yourself in your own way whether it be through facial hair, tattoos, haircuts or whatever. Just be tolerate of others and their looks an understand that their looks are another interpretation of their own self.

9. What waxes, styling aids or glues to you prefer and why?

I started with Mustache Bomb wax and then moved to Firehouse. After I gained some length I swapped to pomades first with Suavecito original and then their strong hold and now I currently use Layrite Super Hold. It is stronger than wax, doesn’t leave a noticeable residue after it hardens, doesnt flake an it isn’t effected by humidity and heat like most others.

10. What do you think a handlebar moustache does for a man?

Shows their individuality and manliness. It is a classic style that will never disappear from history. It also showed the person’s patience and cleanliness because a handlebar takes some time and some grooming to keep it looking great.

No merchandise just grooming products.

Art of Manliness is a web site and app for any classic man.

The power to instantly have conversations started.

19. 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?

Nope maybe with soup but I keep it trained to stay out of my mouth when eating. At first it was a pain until trained to eat a burger but then it got bstter the more I worked with it. So try training it more before you cut it to see if you can keep it out of your mouth.

The only thing I have done was use Clubmans wax in black for a pirate costume on Halloween.

21. What is your preferred style for your handlebar moustache, and do you do a variety of styles?

Either natural curls with no products just heat and wrap after a shower. Sometimes I will use pomade for large curls when I’m going out for a dinner or a bar. I always leave the center natural and never add product to it except for a occasional quick swipe of a wax stick to hold down a random wild hair that might be sticking up.
