Movember is now a week old. Hopefully all your moustaches will be starting to take some form of shape and style. Some of you may be pre-determined to spend the whole month in that unfortunate purgatory in between stubble and a respectable moustache.

It’s the teenage years of a moustaches life: ugly, awkward and seemingly endless. However if your moustache is showing signs of breaking past this unfortunate stage, now is the time to consider what direction to take your moustache in and what style to strive for. Here is a helpful guide to the Top Moustache Styles For Movember.

The Chevron

Thanks to Magnum P.I, the chevron is a moustache that exudes effortless masculinity. Minimal fuss, maximum effect; the chevron is a fuss-free statement of machismo. Simply trim stray hairs and comb downwards. Liable to attract the attention of a multitude of women of a certain age; this moustache will turn heads in the streets and in the bars. Channel the spirits of hardened 80s footballers like Mark Lawrenson with the Chevron. At some point your dad will have tried to grow a chevron, so you can always ask him for advice.

The Pencil

At the complete opposite end of the spectrum to the chevron is the pencil moustache. The pencil requires a lot of preparation and attention. Shave as much of the moustache as possible leaving a thin line above the upper lip. Daily care is required to maintain the appearance of this moustache to help increase its impact. The visual impact is significantly lessened if careless stubble sits atop the main body of moustache.

The Hulk

Blonde haired moustache growers often complain that there are no options for them. Light hair can struggle to create the desired impact of most moustaches, but the handlebar moustache bypasses that problem. A favourite of Hulk Hogan, a bushy blonde handlebar moustache is an extremely enviable moustache. Kings Barber Shop in Birmingham guarantees a warm welcome for anybody sporting a Hulk.

The Dali

Possible the most unorthodox of all moustache styles, the Dali strikes an uncompromising impression upon anybody who the Dali wearer will pass. Shaving the main body of the moustache until only two long, thin strands remain then pulling upwards towards the eyes creates the Dali. Regular care and constant vigilance is needed to maintain the Dail.

The Poirot

The archetypal moustache shape; the Poirot is the elder statesmen of moustache styles. One of the hardest styles to render accurately, the help of an expert is recommended. The skilled staff at Kings Hairdresser in Birmingham can help replicate the style of Belgium’s finest detective. Warning: plenty of moustache wax and a handy moustache comb are needed to maintain this look.
