Bill the Butcher, for me, is one of the most sinister characters in film history and one of the greatest handlebar moustaches we’ve ever seen. His iconic performance was award winning and I truly believed him as this character, the moustache added to his persona exponentially, the way he twists it gives me chills. Oh and sidenote, his glorious moustache reign continues in There will be Blood.
This hilarious, sleazy and crazy ‘baddie’, for want of a better word, becomes even more ridiculous with the moustache. This full gunslinger with the add on of a soul patch, is not a look we would recommend, but for this dodgeball playing maniac, we absolutely love it. Maybe we could sacrifice our beard in aid of a fantastic halloween costumes…
The iconic gentleman; suave, cool and pristine. He knows how to pull off this risky moustache with serious style and confidence. Teamed up with a slick quiff hairstyle and a clean shave that you just know was a hot shave, done at a classy barbers, with a straight razor- basically he oozes old school class. The product suggestions aren't just for the styling, they're classic brands for the modern gentleman to get you in the zone to pull of this look.
Of all of George Clooney’s parts, Ulysses Everett McGill is my favourite. Not only is this a brilliant film by the incredible Coen Brothers, Clooney leading the team of clumsy criminals on a quest to get back to his family is hilarious and thoughtful. The way the gentlemanly Ulysses is positively obsessed with keeping his hair perfect with his ‘Dapper Dan’ wax is something we admire, and how he keeps that slim moustache looking great through all the strife is really remarkable…
So we know how obvious this one is, but it really would be wrong to miss it out. We don’t know what the technical term is for the facial hair style, so let’s call it the ‘Jules’ in honour of one of Quentin Tarantino’s most iconic characters. Again, if you have a dress up party coming up and you want to fully commit, this could be the one for you.
This witty symbol of comedy at its' best appeared in the famous ‘Duck Soup’ with a greasepaint moustache. It is not something we recommend, but for those of you that can’t grow a glorious upper lip feature then at least you know you’re not alone.
The epitome of mid 90’s style, this style can edge dangerously closely to being terrible. But get it right, and Movember will be a breeze for you. The key thing is, if you can’t grow enough hair for this then don’t try. Everyone’s upper lip fluff is different so pick a style that you can maintain, there’s nothing worse than a lacklustre moustache.
Wise, manly and poignant. Just three words that perfectly describe how important this moustache is to the nameless ‘stranger’ in The Big Lebowski. Even without much screen time in this must watch movie, the silver fox Sam Elliott's moustache makes him very memorable, so he still makes this list for these whiskers that are unlike any other.
How to choose just one moustache in the melody of upper lip visual triumphs? It’s possibly something not everyone spotted when they watched this truly excellent film (a personal favourite), but I certainly did. Here’s a poster from the film, so have a go and play spot the moustaches of all shapes and sizes.
This image is the best way to round up this blog, and it basically acts as a guide to what you can achieve with some perseverance, a tiny comb and some mo wax.
So with that in mind, here's one final product, the must have for beginners and experienced moustached men, the Bearded Bastard Vanilla Mo Wax.
