The handlebar mustache is back and in a huge way! This is clear in the recent buzz surrounding Johnny Depp’s handlebar mustache in the upcoming film, Mortedecai.
Even though Johnny’s mustache is not real, you can grow a handlebar mustache for yourself. Here, we will explore how that the handlebar, in recent year, has yet again become a popular style for facial hair. It might just be the next choice of mustache style for you.
A Star in the Making
In Johnny Depp’s new film, Mortedecai, Depp plays a worldly, if not slightly idiotic, art dealer. He is hot on the trail of what he believes is a stolen piece of valuable artwork. This initial journey leads him to believe that the piece in question could actually lead him to stolen Nazi gold. But the true star of the film is Depp’s perfectly coiffed handlebar mustache.
Apparently, Depp’s character feels that this fantastic mustache is the real work of art. Even Depp admitted that he grew quite fond of the mustache while filming. Already, fans are raving about the look for Depp.
The Resurgence of the Handlebar Mustache
Depp’s character is not the only one around who appreciates a great handlebar mustache. In recent years, handlebar mustaches have become very popular among a younger set. Just head to any hip area of any urban area. Chances are you will see at least a few young dudes sporting a great looking handlebar mustache.
The handlebar look also fits perfectly into the recent trend for so called lumbersexuals, well-groomed men who love manly pastimes and dress the part of the modern day urban lumberjack. They are also a favorite amongst hipsters, as well. Lots of ladies love them, as well.
How to Grow a Handlebar Mustache
Growing a handlebar mustache is pretty simple.
1. First, let your mustache grow out for about 6 weeks. Do not trim it the entire time. This is vital.
2. Next, purchase a mustache comb. Start to brush your mustache daily. Part it in the middle and brush outward on each side. Do this for around 2 weeks.
3. Purchase some mustache wax. Wax your mustache after your daily shower. Place a dab in the middle. Then, use the comb to work it into each side.
4. Twist the ends using some extra wax. Curl the hair up and in with your fingers.
Tada! Classic handlebar! Have fun with it.[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″]
