Beard and Moustache Maintenance

With more and more dapper Gentlemen now sporting facial hair it is of upmost importance that these fuzzy faced, moustached men maintain their wonderful beards and marvellous moustaches. Throughout 2013 the number of men sporting facial hair grew quite considerably and it is fair to say it is only going to continue throughout 2014. It has now become somewhat of a trend to sport a face of hair due to the countless number of celebrities that do. No longer a sign of being homeless then…

But how does one maintain a beard? I mean, it is, after all, a work of art so maintenance of facial hair is of great importance to any dapper gent out there sporting a beard. It is all very well to grow a beard and grow a moustache and then leave it at that. Sorry, but that just can’t happen; unless of course you want to look like you have literally walked out of the jungle (not a good look.)

There are now countless barbershops opening up throughout the country that will look after all your fuzzy faced needs. So there’s no excuse to go and have a tidy up, you may also be greeted with a whisky offering.

Maintaining The Moustache

Now, to concentrate on the moustache. There are numerous products out there that will cater for your stiff upper lip and should therefore should not just limit it to Movember! Captain Fawcett’s, home to a range of first class Gentleman’s grooming requisites offers a quite fantastic product for all your moustache needs. Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax comes in three different scents; Ylang-Ylang, Lavender and finally Sandalwood. It is easy to use and provides the user with a wonderful stiff upper lip. This particular wax is not particularly hard holding and can be used to condition the moustache if not offering a firm Dali-esque hold. It is simple to apply; using the back of your fingernail to remove a small amount of wax from the jar, proceed to soften the wax between thumb and forefinger, smooth into your moustache, finally applying a small amount for a final finish and to ensure a tip top shape!
