So I got a hairdrier yesterday and ended up with a crumbling candlestick under my nose. I need waxing basics please.

I start with a wet mo and blow-dry to shape. Then I add lanolin or wax as normal. See Nate the Greats posting on this. Even with using the hair dryer keep in mind less is more when adding anything to the mo.

To follow the gentleman's previous advice, leave it wet from the shower and dry/ shape with the hair dryer.
Depending on your wax you may nee to warm it up with the hairdryer ( I use Dubs moustache crème and its pukka, don't need to heat it up ) slowly work the wax into the tash trying not to pull too hard and almost stroke and bend into the shape/ curls you want using the hairdryer to assist and warm the wax.

Hope this helps as im not the best at giving instructions

The hair dryer is really a useful tool. The most important thing is that the wax is soft enough when you apply it, if not, you will end up getting clumps and pulling out hairs. Some waxes require the hair dryer method, some don't. You just have to do what feels right and gives you the result you are looking for.

I bet no two guys wax their moustache the same way - similar, sure, but not the same. I recommend go to YouTube and search for "how to wax a moustache" and watch some videos. Some videos are better than others, but it can certainly be nice to see a variety of approaches and then test various techniques on your own moustache.

Good luck!

I find the hairdryer useful when spreading the wax along the moustache, but not when curling. I need the extremities to be sticking together when doing the curl and heat only seems to loosen it. But then, I'm only a beginner and I do pull out hairs while waxing. Yet to figure out the right technique.

-edit-
Heat works. Period. :imperial
