"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

Im a newbie with a few questions. I have been growing for about a month and was wondering how it looks so far? Do you think it will be thick enough eventually? Also my Job will not allow my mustache to hang below my bottom lip. Ive started using mustache wax to hold the edges up and it works a little. Should I trim the sides and if so how would I go about doing it.
Thanks in advance, Chris

Damn you, Chris! I can't even grow that in 2 months. Curse you, asian facial hair genetics! I'm a newbie as well so I won't be giving you any advice but if there's anything I've learned here, it's DON'T TRIM. Happy growing!

It's time to start with a stiff wax like Firehouse WackyTacky or something similar. The Got2BGlued styling gel in a yellow tube will also work to keep it over...it's never too early to train those bad boys in the right way to grow.

and, btw, that's great progress for a month...especially since it seems that lighter hair colors don't fill in as quickly

Hi Chris. Welcome. You are off to a great start. Per your message above:

Great!

Yes, but your question is based on the premise that handlebars must be thick to be awesome. I don't accept that because thin ones look great too (and make the best Dali and English styles). Having said that, I don't think you will lack thickness.

If you trim the sides, then you won't have a handlebar and will be left with a boring ordinary mustache. If you do that, don't tell any of us here.

You should consider what the worst thing that can happen to you if you stretch those work rules a bit. If the worst thing is that your supervisor pulls you aside and tells you that you have gone to far, then simply apologize and come back the next day "corrected". On the other hand, if disciplinary action is involved, then caution would make sense. It is always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Wow! Amazing for a month. If the rule is about the moustache hanging down, just start waxing it up - and definitely don't trim those tips!

Looks fantastic for only a month!!! I won´t add anything to what has already been said because it has all been great advice. I just wanted to add my voice to the praise. It looks great! :)

A "bigotón" or "bigotudo" is the proud wearer of a (big) moustache.

But a "bigot" is someone with rather bigoted views about those who proudly display a hirsute adornment on their upper lips.
