In my case, I have learnt it through trial and error, finally ending up with just what I needed.
You can find mustache combs in different sizes but mostly they are small since you will need to carry it with you. It should have fine teeth so the spacing is very narrow which would pick your hair with ease.
You may be aware that these combs are not like the normal combs which you would use for your hair. Mustache combs are specifically manufactured with polished edges so they would not scratch your skin. They should also be anti-static.
What you have to remember is that basically you are educating and training your hair to go in the direction you want. So, the comb should be quite sturdy and not bend as you run it through your mustache.
These combs come with or without handle, and it´s a matter of choice which one you pick. Personally I prefer the ones with the handle as they give me a nice grip.
You can also find folding mustache combs which look similar to a switchblade knife.
Another point to remember before choosing a mustache comb is to check the size. When you see images on an online store, they tend to look a lot bigger than what they really are.
Here, you will find reviews of some of the best mustache combs which users are very satisfied with.

Kent the Handmade Comb 81T is 73mm ( approx. 3 inches ) in size making it very handy to carry in your pocket and it will also fit nicely in your wallet.
It works fine for the mustaches as well as beards. However, if you have a longer beard, you might find it to be too small. It´s really more suitable as a mustache comb.
It has rounded polished teeth and placed quite close together so it won´t miss any hair. I paticularly like the design of the handle which makes it very convenient to get a good grip.
The quality speaks for itself when you use it and for all that it is available at a very reasonable price.
The reviews from the users are mostly positive with only a handful of users giving it low star ratings.
All in all, if you are looking for a good quality and durable mustache comb, this is certainly one which is highly recommended.
Swissco Tortoise Folding Comb
For those who prefer a folding comb, Swissco Tortoise Folding Comb is a good choice. In case you are wondering why “Tortoise”, that´s because it is made of an imitation tortoise shell.
The comb goes through a 12-step manufacturing process to ensure quality. This is another handmade and finely polished product, making it very smooth to glide through your mustache and beard.
Its size is 3.5 inches in a folded position which makes it a dual purpose comb to be used for mustache as well as beard. The handle folds over the comb which helps to protect the teeth from breaking in your pocket.
The handle feels quite strong and sturdy although couple of users have had complaints about the hinge of the handle. They were not not so happy with the quality and that it catches the hair while combing. Still, a great majority of users have been very happy after using it and given high stars ratings.
It is available at a mid price range. There are certainly cheaper options of mustache combs out there but then you may have to compromise with the quality.
Kent 20T Folding Comb
Kent is well known for their quality, Kent 20T folding comb is another great product by company. It is only 3 inches in size making it easy to fit in your pocket.
It is handmade and unbreakable with polished edges. The folding process will feel a bit tight in the beginning but that´s quite normal and after a little use, you will find it quite smooth.
It also comes with an extra feature of a pocket clip. This makes it quite handy to clip it to your pocket, preventing it from falling at the bottom of your pocket. However, there are a few complaints about the quality of the clip. Some people found that it broke easily.
Personally, I find the price to be slightly on the higher side for a pocket comb but there are customers who have repeatedly bought the same comb, a fact which tells a lot about the quality.
A Switchblade Comb probably won´t be my first choice since it seems like a quite flashy item especially for youngsters.
It measures 5 inches closed and 9 inches in an open position. Although it appears to be of a fairly large size, the working area is quite small. Most of the length is taken by the handle and the frame of the teeth. This does not leave you much space for the actual teeth. Still it´s good enough for a mustache or a smaller beard.
There is also a push button to open the comb, much like a switchblade.
The comb is available at a very economical price but do not be confused that it´s cheap so it must be of a low quality. The frame is made of metal so it feels quite strong and not a bad buy for that price provided you like the switchblade action.
It gets very mixed reviews with about 50% of the users giving really high ratings and others giving more mediocre reviews.
I would suggest to use it carefully and sparingly and it should last you for a long time. Considering its price which is quite affordable and it´s really something of a fun item.
