Today I’m going to show you how to style a natural moustache. Let’s hop into it, shall we?
All right to get your natural curl started you’re going to need at least two things. You’re going to need something to curl your moustache with. I use a roller. Other people use their fingers. It doesn’t matter, it’s personal preference.
The other thing you’re going to need is a hair dryer. You’re going to need this because we’re going to wet the moustache and then blow dry it to where it stays in that curled state.
First, we’ll wet the moustache. It’s a clean dry moustache at the moment. We’re going to wet the moustache. Turn the water off; dry off your hands. What you’re going to do is take the roller. Take it all the way to the end of your moustache. Now, if you guys have a smaller moustache you might not need a roller. You can just take a round brush and curl this way while blow drying.
You take it and roll all the way to up to where you want – which is going to be right about there. Make sure you get it on there, nice and tight. Then, you’re going to take the blow dryer. Turn it on low heat. You don’t want to scorch your moustache or your face. What you’re going to do is blow dry right at the base of the hair. See where I’m pointing it?
Wait till you get it nice and dry. Then you’re going to lightly take the curl out. You can see it’s already starting to curl. What you want to do from here is do it one more time to get it where you want. See I’ve got a lot of fly-aways here? We’re going to fix that. We’re going to do it one more time.
Even though I’m putting water on it and stretching it out, she’s still going right back to where I had it. Now that we’ve got that nice and wet, we’re going to do this one more time. Now it doesn’t take much. If your hair dryer is really warm, it does not take much at all. Then you lightly unroll. Pull it out. Tweak to how you would like it.
That’s how you get the start of your curl. After that you can go and put some hairspray on this. I highly recommend that so it stays all day. There’s a lot of people who just want to go natural moustache. What I like to do is take the dry oils, the beard balms – that actually has a little bit of beeswax in it. What you can do is put that in and lightly rotate around. It’s going to take all the fly-aways that are up here and down here – it’s going to take all of those out.
Now I do have some of the dry oil on here so that’s what is helping it stick together at the moment. You can see my kind of rolling it with my fingers trying to get it stuck together. That’s that little bit of beeswax in there that’s helping me do that.
And there you have it. You have your natural handlebar moustache.
