I met this cute guy once. He stole my heart at once, thanks to his facial hair. He was bearded enough with a beard I loved playing with and a distinctive mustache style that conjured up a sultry image every time I saw him.
Unfortunately we parted ways. But his facial hair still sticks in my memory. Perhaps that is what inspired me to explore this topic.

This style grooms like a pencil.
The only difference is that the philtrum (the hollow above the upper lip) has a hard line, creating a center parting effect.
3. Handlebar mustache style
This style resembles a bicycle handle. It features long ends that curl. The handlebar mustache dates back to his 19th century. American Wild West figure European soldiers wore them during World War I.
The handlebars are a statement mustache style. Even if it’s not as popular as it used to be, it can still be rocked anytime, anywhere, even for occasions like fancy dress parties.
This is one of the classic mustache styles for men. As the name suggests, it is shaped like a chevron and covers the entire upper lip.
To keep your chevron mustache looking smooth, trim the hair over your upper lip and shave the rest of your face clean.
This facial hairstyle is similar to other mustaches, only that it has two long hair bars that point downward and extend toward the chin.
These days, it features a slim cut with short ends and no facial hair on the upper lip despite the short ends.
6. Gunslinger Beard
This style is a horseshoe mustache with sideburns.
It’s the type of mustache that evokes images of Old West men who wielded guns.
7. Anchor Beard
It is a beard style that traces the jaw line and stays with a beard. David Beckham, Johnny Depp, and many other stars rock this mustache style.
Ikari beard is a stylish mustache style for the modern man. Give it a try or make it part of your signature style.
