All About Mustache Care: Which Mustache Wax Is Right For Me?

We love a good regal, scruffy beard at Zeus Beard. It shows the world that it took you months, even years to grow a beard and get it to its godly status. 

However, there is something about a well-executed mustache.

While big beards have a brawny aura to them, an impressive, thick ‘stache says that you are all about finesse — you strive for perfection and won’t take anything less. 

So if you want to be dripping in finesse instead of looking like a scrub, use our line of mustache wax. We’ve got our tried-and-true Mustache Wax, which is great for daily use. If you need some extra muscle, try our Mustache Styling Wax

And it’s OK if you don’t know how to use our products because we’ll be showing you how in this post.

Prep Your Mustache for Primetime

First thing’s first, let’s get that mustache of yours nice and clean. It may seem like overkill to wash something so minuscule but trust us, it’ll be worth it.

Get your facial hair wet with lukewarm water, work in a small amount of beard shampoo for about 30 seconds and then rinse it out.

To keep that ‘stache moisturized and healthy, we recommend adding a few drops of beard oil while the hairs are still damp. Zeus Ambassador Anthony Adams explains that using beard oil locks in natural moisture and keeps your facial hair hydrated and strong, as well as reduce skin irritation.

Styling Your ‘Stache to Perfection

After your mustache is dry, you’ve got a few options when it comes to how you want your style your facial hair.

If you’re looking for a natural look, opt for our standard mustache wax. It’s plenty strong to keep your mustache in place, but not too stiff to poke your eye out.

Grab the tin and warm it with your hands to loosen the wax, scoop out as much as you need and style your ‘stache however you like. If you want a more groomed look, work in the product with a mustache comb, like our new sandalwood mustache comb.

And if your mustache comes undone in the middle of the day, just reapply to keep your facial hair in check. Pro tip: keep your tin in your pocket to keep it warm and pliable.

Now if you’re looking for something to take your ‘stache to the next level, our Mustache Styling Wax provides an extra firm hold that will ensure your facial hair stays put. Just use a small amount of wax, evenly distribute it through the hairs and shape it to your liking.

Don’t forget to use a mustache comb to evenly distribute the wax and remove any excess to keep your mustache looking classy.

You can also use both products together to get your ‘stache looking just right — apply the mustache wax throughout the facial hair and use the styling wax on the tips to wrangle stray hairs.

At the end of the day, make sure to wash out the wax to avoid product build up and brittle hair. Or if you’re training your mustache, leave it in overnight.

Our bearded buddies can use mustache wax, too. Use a little bit of wax to tame your beard and get it looking proper.
