There is no end to the list of geometric, architectural and sculptural possibilities when you’ve got some facial hair and a tin of Brooklyn Grooming Mustache Wax.
There’s the classic handlebar, worn by men of distinction throughout history from President William H.Taft to Panama Jack. The Dali, the Fu Manchu, the Chin Puff, the list goes on.
The point is, if you can dream it, it’s possible.
Castor oil and kukui nut oil condition your sub-nasal caterpillar while beeswax gives it supple hold and pliability. If you’re new to mustache wax—and this is the best place to start—you may be surprised by its firm, thick, gummy texture. It’s basically mustache glue.
But hey, as you know, the hair of the ‘stache is probably the hardest, most bristly hair on the face—maybe the whole body. So even with the stiffened hold of the mustache wax, you may have to spend time “training” the hair to bend and curl and defy gravity. Don’t hesitate to apply heat from a blow dryer to encourage uniform shaping.

Scent: This fragrance boasts a depth of character not to be missed. Its complexity is derived from the striking diversity among its four key essences. Classical, nature-derived aromas work in symphony to create a contemporary re-imagining of what a man’s fragrance ought to be. Strapping, woody Cedar Atlas and Cedar Virginia stand alongside the brightness and warmth of Ho Wood and the delicate, floral fruitiness Ylang Ylang. It’s a life-affirming walk through the woods on a cool, dewy dawn; it’s a rowboat reaching the center of a lake just before sunrise; it’s walking through the turnstile, past the crowd, down the subway stairs and onto the train a split second before the doors close behind you. Williamsburg smells like personal triumph. .
