1. Herringbone Mustache | Tom Selleck
Popularized by actor Tom Selleck, the Selleck mustache (also known as the Chevron mustache) relies on coarse hair, which can take months to grow. Relatively neat, this style is one of the most simplistic versions of mustaches. Something you should consider before trying this is the type of facial hair you have. It works best on those with straighter hair and can be maintained by cutting longer hair that is starting to grow over your mouth.
2. Walrus Mustache
Certainly not for the faint of heart, the walrus mustache is undeniably statement-making. Big in the 19e century and the first part of the 20e century, this look also saw a revival in the youth counterculture revolutions of the sixties. This style relies on growing your facial hair for more than five months. During this time, the hair will begin to hang over your upper lip, giving the desired “morse code” mark. Be sure to shave off your remaining facial hair for a true recreation of this traditional trend.
3. Pencil mustache
The “pencil” mustache became more popular when movie stars like Clark Gable and Errol Flynn adopted the style. Straight out of a 1940s movie, the pencil mustache is much easier to achieve than the thicker Selleck style. You can develop this version in about a month. This mustache needs grooming quite frequently, requiring a bit more attention for grooming the lower part of the style, so it looks like pencil straightness. Overall, it’s a neater, more vintage take on facial hair.
4. Handlebar Mustache
A street style favourite, the handlebar mustache features curved ends that curl towards the cheekbones. A fresher, more youthful way to approach this classic favorite is to opt for a more modern haircut. The handlebar style is simple; Use a small dab of mustache wax to curl each end of your mustache outward, creating curved ends.
5. Horseshoe Mustache
Think Hulk Hogan and Aaron Rodgers. Distinctive and ultra-bold, this mustache is one of the most over-the-top styles. If you’re up for trying it, it will take a few months (to grow your hair thick enough) and a lot of guts. This style is definitely not for many, so make sure it works for you. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like Ben Stiller in Dodgeball.
6. Cowboy Mustache
The cowboy mustache appeared long before Woody made his mark in Toy Story. Primarily a messier, longer, messier version of the Selleck mustache, this version shouldn’t be too neat, but rather rugged and less neat. Naturally, tidy up this mustache with a pair of scissors, so it doesn’t look totally sloppy, but avoid precise trimming of large sections of hair to maintain the roughness of this version.
7. Fu Manchu Mustache
We weren’t kidding when we said our guide was complete. One of the more eccentric styles, the Fu Manchu is something straight out of a comic book. Derived from Dr. Fu Manchu’s signature look, this style requires you to grow out the sides of your mustache, so that they hang over your chin. Pair that with longer hair on your chin and you have a more traditional mustache. This version is perhaps a little more appropriate for Halloween. For a more modern version, point your mustache in other directions for a different look.
8. Mustache Dali
The namesake of this mustache is none other than Salvador Dali, the famous Spanish surrealist painter. Dali’s spirit can be seen in this comical, yet signature mustache style; the ends stand up straight and can be shaped by swirling mustache wax over your long sections of hair so your locks stick out. A pomade was traditionally used by Dali, who once joked that his mustache was the most serious part of his personality.
9. Scruffy Mustache
Favored by high profile actors, the scruffy mustache is not very distinctive and usually comes with stubble. Perhaps the easiest and most stylish way to approach a mustache, it’s a foolproof option if you’re a little skeptical about growing your mustache. It won’t take long to grow your facial hair to the required length for this style, but remember that it can be modified for those with thicker facial hair – just trim your mustache and evenly stubble. For inspiration, think of Johnny Depp, James Franco and Ryan Gosling.
How to grow a mustache
For readers who have never really experienced longer facial hair before, just know that you will need a little patience. Thick, decent hair doesn’t grow overnight, so know that you’ll have to commit, no matter how uncomfortable your facial hair growth may seem.

When you start to feel a thick enough beard coming, shave the rest of your face leaving your mustache alone.
