Bourbon Country, Awesome Handkerchiefs, and Initiative

At CanYouHandlebar, we want to help you cultivate the best beard and moustache that you can grow.  We make a full line of premium products carefully and thoughtfully designed to help you clean, condition, and style your facial hair.  

In between making our beard oils, moustache waxes, and beard dry oils, we enjoy traveling, discovering new companies that put as much care into their products as we do, and every once in a while we like to kick back with a good drink.

Make your moustache one worthy of fantastic pictures like this photo of Troy R., a judges' choice winner of our recent contest. Some of you may recognize Troy as the American Mustache Institute's 2014 Mustached American of the Year. Like Troy's look? We can help you achieve it - the moustache part anyway - Get a pair of our waxes and get to work taking some fantastic pictures of your own.
Take the Initiative to be different
"At the Harvard Business School, I really felt I had gained the ability to resolve difficult issues. But I also felt that I wasn't in the mainstream with my fellow students. During job-hunting season, for example, everybody shaved their beards for interviews. I thought, 'This is crazy.' So I grew a beard." - Thomas G. Stemberg, founder of Staples, Inc.
If you find yourself in the middle of Kentucky at 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon and you have $10 burning a hole in your pocket, take a tour at the Woodford Reserve Distillery.  If you happen to have $50 burning a hole in your pocket, be sure to spend that extra $40 on a bottle of bourbon after you pick your favorite from the tasting at the end of the tour.
Woodford combines simple ingredients with simple ideals - hard work and a dedication to doing things the right way. The result is an outstanding product with a rich, storied history.
We drank in the sites (along with a little bourbon), and look forward to a return trip. Check out details and tour schedules at
Handkerchiefs are the new beard oil. There are hundreds of variations out there, some better than others. At a recent beard competition in Kentucky, we met some new friends who make great handkerchiefs - Red Raven Hanks. As spring gives way to summer, we find ourselves mopping our brows and having a quality handkerchief makes that process much easier to deal with. 

Handkerchiefs are seemingly simple, but even the simple things can make a difference - Red Raven runs a diagonal stitch from one corner to another making sure that the two pieces of fabric that make up the handkerchief don't fold over during use. We like to use the tools in our pockets, and this is not only a great looking tool, but a fully functional one as well. 

Wipe down your brow or beard and moustache knowing that these come from a facial hair friendly company. If you happen to run into them on Facebook or Instagram, be sure to tell them we said hello.
