It's not enough to have a great moustache wax at your disposal - to create an enviable styled moustache, you have to know how to use your wax, and that starts with properly preparing it for use. Not too long ago, we published an article on How to Properly Prepare Moustache Wax for Use, but in case you're in more of a hurry, here are some quick tips to help you out. Remember, the name of the game is warming your wax.
Place the tin of wax in your front pants pocket for a while as you go about your normal activities. Your natural body heat will warm the wax a bit;
Give your wax a bath. Put the entire tin (lid on) in a sink or mug full of hot water for a few minutes. We made our labels oilproof and waterproof for occasions just like this;
Aim a hairdryer at the wax (lid on or off) and hit it with heat for a few minutes;
Scrape out an amount of wax and use your thumb and forefinger to roll it into a ball, then place your thumb and forefinger in your mouth as though you were going to use them to whistle, and use exhaling to warm the wax. Just be careful to inhale through your nose and not your mouth as that could cause you to swallow the ball of wax.
It's as easy as that! Feel free to experiment to find the method that works best for you, and be sure to continue warming the wax during application - a hairdryer on a low heat seat or a mini flatiron works great for this - to ensure a smooth and even application. If you're looking for a medium hold wax, be sure to check out our Primary Moustache Wax. If you're looking for a firm hold, take a look at our Secondary Moustache Wax. Can't decide which to try? Then Get a Pair!
