"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

I had a bit of a problem with my 'tache this morning, after having it in the curlers the left side made a weird S shape when I took them out. So I put it back it on the left and held it in place with five bobby pins. When I took it out it was curled beautifully.

That got me thinking, why did it work so well with more bobby pins? I'm guessing the metal of the pins retained the heat and kept the hairs hotter longer. Since there were so many of them covering a larger area, it gave a better curl. Of course, that many bobby pins is a bit slow to put in, especially if you're doing two sides. So what about making the curler itself out of metal? After all, regular hair tongs are metallic. Maybe a piece of thin aluminum pipe, to keep it light. The only trick would be making sure it didn't touch your face. Unfortunately I don't have the tools to try it out here. At some point I'll give it a shot, though.

Matt, just watched ur videos and enjoyed. I cut my stache off a few months ago, but am currently in the process of growing the handlebar back. Not looking forward to teh "stache trash" stage, but will be patient. :) Anyway, when I had mine, I also used a marker cap to curl the stache, I just stood and held it in place for several minutes though. I am gonna have to try the homeade curlers now. Thanks again for the demo! :red:

here is another great thread from years gone by... go the the beginning to get some good info on some DIY mustache curlers.
this inspired me to not really make curlers, but to get some of the Velcro ones and modify them. :thumbup:

i bought a pack of 31 for around $9 on amazon and it came with 5 sizes
Image

i cut one of each size in half which gave me 10 mustache sized curlers. each size can give a little different effect... with the two smallest i can make closed loops :imperial , and with the larger ones i can make nice even swoops or curls :magyar .
Image

i just wrap damp hair around the curlers and dry with the hair dryer. the smaller ones can be put in and will hold themselves with their Velcro action. being porous the air dries the whiskers from the outside and the inside of the curler. with the larger ones i tend to do one side at a time. i just press my graspable appendages into the Velcro, and they stick. i hold the curler in place and dry from both inside and out. when i remove the curlers form each side i have perfectly even sized curls. when done a little lanolin and i a good to go all day.

if i want some stronger hold i can spray some hair spray on my fingers and rub it into the mustache and then roll and dry, when you take the curlers out you have very sold curls or loops.
