There are a lot of styling products out there for facial hair. More often than not, it’s mainly beard balms, beard oils and a plethora of hairstyling products. And due to their abundance in the men’s grooming market, sometimes moustache waxes get lost in the mix and don’t receive as much love as it deserves.
Not this time. In this article, we’re placing the spotlight on moustache waxes and teaching how to apply these nifty products in 4 easy steps.
How to apply moustache wax
1. Scrape a small amount
Using your thumb, scrape a small amount of wax with the back of your nail. Less is more.
2. Warm up the moustache wax
Warm the wax between your pointer finger and thumb until all clumps are smoothed out and melted.
3. Apply to your moustache
Apply the product to the moustache using your pointer finger and thumb in a pulling-away motion–almost like pinching the hairs between your fingers. Start from the middle and pull and pinch your way outwards.
4. Repeat as necessary
Repeat the same pulling motion a couple of times until you feel the wax is evenly distributed as much as possible. Style the hairs how you would like, and finish off with a moustache comb to even out any product and stray hairs.
Moustache Wax FAQs
What are the benefits of moustache wax?
Moustache waxes have plenty of benefits including (but not limited to):
- Keeps the moustache looking healthy and neatly kept
- The thicker texture keeps unruly moustache hair in the same direction
- Reduces dandruff and itchiness by moisturising the skin underneath the beard hair
- Most of all, moustache waxes have a subtle scent to make your grooming routine enjoyable
When should I apply moustache wax?
The best time to apply moustache wax is after a shower. This is when your beard is completely clean and the hairs are softest, making it easier to apply the wax and style to your liking. You can also apply them whenever you feel like styling your moustache a certain way.
Is moustache wax necessary?
Yes. Like a beard, moustaches can become very unruly without proper maintenance and care. Moustache wax is like a 2-in-1 product–not only can it be used to to achieve a certain look, but many on the market contain nourishing oils that moisturise to prevent itchiness and dandruff. Not to mention, the pots are travel-friendly in size so you can easily bring it with you and reapply throughout the day if needed.
So what is the best moustache wax for me?
There isn’t a “best” moustache wax per se. It just comes down to personal preference and what kind of scent you like. Nonetheless, here are some of our recommendations and customer favourites:
