ARE MOUSTACHES REALLY BECOMING BIGGER THAN BEARDS?
In recent times, the Moustache Trend seems to be giving beards a run for their money. No, we're not talking about a punk mohawk resurgence or the latest teenage piercing craze. This trend is much closer to home, quite literally under your nose - the marvelous moustache!
The ‘stash’, as some fondly call it, is making a noticeable comeback on the faces of men, both young and old. Experts are now speculating that moustaches could surpass the Beard Boom, becoming equally, if not more, popular.
There’s something undeniably cool about Handlebar Moustaches and neatly trimmed upper lip hair. It’s easy to see why many are swapping their beards for the classic look of a moustache. Gone are the days of lumberjack-style beards dominating our TV screens. Instead, my childhood heroes like Hulk Hogan from the WWF era, sported iconic horseshoe moustaches, setting trends in the late 80s and early 90s. Indeed, many WWF wrestlers embraced this style, adding an edge to their persona.
But is this the end for beards? I wouldn't say so. Despite being labeled a fad or a hipster trend, beards continue to flourish, with more men than ever embracing facial hair.
So why not have the best of both worlds? Beard and Moustache Coexistence is certainly possible. I’ve personally experimented with a fuller moustache while sporting a beard. However, I’ve found that after a certain length, it interferes with life's simple pleasures - like enjoying a cup of coffee or sharing a kiss.
That's where Moustache Maintenance becomes key. No one wants a moustache dunked in their coffee or tangled in their lunch. Keeping the upper lip hair well-trimmed ensures everything stays neat and manageable.
Will moustaches continue to rise in popularity? Absolutely. And I believe beards will continue to thrive too. It’s not an either/or situation; it’s about personal style and preference.
