The moustache is coming back with everything. And the good thing is that there are many different ways of wearing a moustache. But what’s the difference between each style? And which one best suits your face shape?


It is a more voluminous moustache with rounded corners. It works best for those who have a straighter and more voluminous moustache.

The Chevron was very famous in the 80’s with Tom Selleck in the TV series Magnum and I think it’s one of the most elegant.

As the moustache needs to be voluminous, if you’re thinking of sporting a Chevron, it might be a good idea to grow a full beard first and mould the moustache into the right shape and volume.

The maintenance is simple: with a good pair of scissors at home you can keep it combed to the sides and cut the hairs that are growing in the line of the upper lip. Remember that its tips follow the thicker format of the moustache and are not thin.


It’s basically a full moustache with a neatly trimmed or unshaven beard.

This is a style for people who don’t want to draw too much attention to their moustache, or who aren’t confident enough to get an idea of how their face will look.

It also works very well as an own style. It suits those with darker beard and moustache hairs.

If the hairs on the beard and moustache are lighter, the contrast in size may not be as evident and it may look more sloppy than stylish.

But it’s worth a try! What matters is that you look in the mirror and like it.


It appeared in England, in the Victorian era, as a counterpoint to the big beards, super trendy at the time.

And it became well known in the world during the second war, through Hollywood stars like Clark Gable.

It’s like you’ve drawn a pencil moustache on your face. Very fine and demarcated. It needs almost daily maintenance.

On the other hand, practically every man can have a pencil moustache since you don’t need to have a lot of hair as you do for a Chevron, for example.

It suits those with a rounder face and, when worn with confidence, can be quite stylish.


It is a horseshoe shaped moustache. Big moustache and going down the sides in an inverted U shape. And it’s a very bold style.

Basically a goatee without the chin. It’s not recommended for those who have a thin, narrow face because it can thin and lengthen the look even more.

The Horseshoe suits more those with an oval or rounder face.


It has that name because it reminds us of a bicycle handlebar. Thin, long and with rounded ends.

This is a moustache style that demands a real commitment to growth, hygiene and maintenance.

The deal is not to cut, especially the longer strands that grow in the corners of the mustache.

All the previous styles you need a moustache wax to leave the wires aligned. But this one doesn?t exist without wax. You can’t have a natural Handlebar.

And it’s good to remember that if your moustache is thicker or curly, it’s even harder to maintain. It works better on those who have longer and preferably thinner moustache hairs.


Fuzzy, huge, covering the mouth, and goes very well with those with big noses and wide faces.

It’s a style that can make you look older so take that into account when wearing it. And also one of the trickiest when it comes to eating, kissing…

But without a doubt it’s a great statement of your style.

It’s a type of moustache that was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. And it was reborn among young people during the counter-culture of the 60s.

To get a walrus moustache you need to let the hair grow for at least 5 months. During this time the hairs will cover the lips and there will be a period when they will enter the mouth. The goal is to grow it to the point where it covers your mouth.

On the other hand, maintaining a walrus moustache is relatively simple. Wash it frequently, especially after meals, moisturize the strands well with beard oil and comb it.

Moustache wax is also necessary here to keep this look to the sides and you don’t have your moustache falling forward.


Here’s a style that can look really cool on those who use it right. It’s a medium moustache in a more rounded shape.

It doesn’t have to be thick like the chevron or thin like the pencil, so basically everybody can have one. And you let this part here of the chin grow out too, giving it this anchor shape.

It’s also a fail-safe style. If you have a flawed beard on the sides or in the moustache junction with the beard, the anchor works very well.

Besides being a good alternative for those who don’t like to leave the goatee.
