The Handlebar Club Forum

"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

The following is a link to six scanned pages with text and illustrations that relate to professional cutting and styling of beards and moustaches. Of particular interest to this forum is Moustache Curling and Cutting - pages 122 and 124, unfortunately page 123 is not included.

There's no indication as to the date of these pages. No doubt the history buffs among us can decifer the clues within the text and styles. Safety razors had been introduced and they refer to pre-decimal currency - charging an extra shilling or sixpence for moustache curling.

An interesting read. References to "the war" and that the "kaiser" stye has gone out of date would suggest post First World War.

That's a great link, Schnauzer! It's gone straight on The British Beard Club's Links page for a start!
