Not all Mustache Waxes are Alike
Just like not all men’s facial hair is alike neither are all waxes used to control those mustaches.
Most men put stache wax into 3 categories, soft, medium, and firm (or hard). Soft mustache wax is normally used in shorter staches to help control stray hairs and simply give the stache a nice sheen and keep it looking and feeling healthy.
Medium and firm waxes work well in longer staches and used for both control and to style the mustache. The firmer the wax, the better it tends to hold in hot or humid weather.
Choosing the Best Mustache Wax for You
What brand or type of mustache wax will work for you depends on many different things.
It will depend on the coarseness or softness of your facial hair, whether your stache is thick or thin, the style of mustache you wear and even the climate of the area in which you live.
Finding the wax that suits you and your stache may take some trial and error, however in order to help you narrow down which brands to try, we have reviewed a number of the best mustache waxes available, and given a short synopsis of how each brand of wax performs.
