"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

What's the best and worst comment you have ever received about your handlebar??

My worst was when a nice looking older woman said:"That's the ugliest moustache i have ever seen!"(I told her i thought Hitler's was worse!


The best was when my wife said whe loved it and it's charming Victorian look!!That was a delightful thing to say!!

My boss and colleagues absolutely hate my moustache (they think I am crazy) - I have to go into work and face the constant criticism. I have not been growing mine for long and just recently started to wax, which has attracted more comments. This forum is great as it keeps me going when I am close to picking the razor up and shaving it off.
Oh well, anyone feel sorry for me yet?
I have not received a good comment but if/when I do I shall be jumping up and down with happiness.

p.s. kapellmeister1, I have seen pics of your moustache on a pervious post , it looks great (what is it like at the moment) hats off to you- it must of took a lot of patience- definitely something to be proud of.

Best of luck


thank you

Hello Scottyb thanks for the question

Its in its early stages of development – its 4 inches tip to tip, the centre hairs need to grow to the ends which will take a while due to some silly trimming a month ago. I thought my moustache would look better with my top lip trimmed – I was very wrong :(
i am hoping to grow it over 8 inches- anyone got any ideas how long that will take?

Whats yours like?

If I wax mine out straight, it's over 8 inches. It's taken me more than 4 years to get to this stage, but I have been trimming it quite regularly. For me, trimming was pretty much essential, just because of how it developed. It might not be that way for you, though. You just need to follow your own path and figure it out along the way.

The usual estimate for average male facial hair growth rate is about half an inch a month, but it can vary greatly with one's individual genetic make-up.

My beard grew untrimmed to about eight inches in two years, but has now reached "terminal length", which is the hair length at which growth stops, the hair is shed, and another one starts growing from the root. This doesn't happen at the same time or at the same length for all facial hairs, obviously...

Like David,mine took about 2 years to reach 8".Then,i trimmed it back in march.Wish i hadn't.Now it is at about 5.25".I think by about august(The next Whiskerclub contest in Wa State USA)it should be about 7" or so.When waxed it always looks longer than it is.

Thanks for the comments :{ Much appreciated.
Sometimes a change is needed.I was happy after trimming that i wouldn't have to spend 1/2 hour every morning preening in front of a mirror just to get the stach ready for the day.But i miss it and the attention.
Yes,i do like the attention! Just like the show off that i'am.
I admit it. :D

Already starting to get the looks back though.

JD

In australia, we have a famous cricketer named David Boon (Boony). He was our main wicket keeper/batsman for a while, but is now retired. He has a large bushy moustache.
I recently went away on school camp as a helper for 11-12 year old kids. On this camp, one of them said to me " Do you know that you look like boony " ?
that was my best comment to date.

The worst was that I look like Emporer Ming ? ( So I removed the hair that I originally left on my lower lip )

Most comments have been good.

My best so far was that it looked 'distinguished' - but this is early days, I'm expecting 'magnificent', 'breathtaking' and hopefully 'erotic' very soon.

Worst was the result of a briefly popular (among the less mentally developed mokeys in my workplace) viral email game, puerilely entitled 'Tash or G***' - I won't go into details, but it was accompanied by a song which I had to endure sung at me for a while.

Amazingly, I work amongst adults in a supposedly creative industry.

The worst comment I've heard came from a woman at a till in a shop last christmas. She was so amazed to see me that her first reaction was "you remind me of my grandfather".

Strangely as it may seem the best comments relate to Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot. To be honest I hardly hear any comments. People tend to keep silent here.

My I add my compliments as well Pascal!

Whilst attending a country & game fair a fortnight or so ago I thought I would treat myself to a new cap. Whilst browsing through the stock on offer at one particular headgear specialist the proprietor struck up a conversation during which he said the cap I was trying on matched my overall extravagant and flamboyant appearance. Not quite sure what I make of that lol :lol:
