Trimming your mustache, 9 essential tips for proper mustache trimming
Long gone are the days when trimming a mustache and the associated mustache were decried as pornography. Still considered a no-go at the end of the 90s, the perfect mustache trim has the potential to make women's hearts beat faster again today.
But be careful! In particular, an unkempt mustache or an incorrectly styled shape that does not match the proportions of the face can backfire. Since you've decided to grow a tough mustache, we've made this our topic today and will show you how to trim your mustache.
Below we will explain to you using nine points how you can achieve the perfect magnum look à la Tom Selleck by carefully trimming your mustache after letting your hair grow.
What are the most important tips for trimming your mustache perfectly?
1. A correct choice of color
If you have light hair, it is often useful to dye your beard in advance (light to dark brown, depending on the type). No question, you are what grows into you. Nevertheless, nature can definitely be given a helping hand in various situations. Especially at an age when the beard is still developing.
Coloring your beard hair makes your facial hair look thicker and fuller. Light-colored fuzz on the upper lip is usually unsuitable as facial hair, like your grandmother's mustache and is not intended for mustache trimming. Ok, women's beards are a harsh comparison at this point, but definitely appropriate when it comes to trimming mustaches.
2. Regular visits to the barber
In addition to the clean cut for your hair, the barber you trust is the right place to go for your facial hair. Trimming his beard is not just his hobby but his calling.
At the same time, your barber can determine the basic shape of your mustache in a professional manner and explain the appropriate shave to you.
In addition to going to the barber regularly, you should first get the right tools for trimming your mustache.
3. The mustache comb
A fine-toothed comb is essential for neatly styling a mustache. After all, no one wants to have messy hair blowing around their face.
The comb will bring your mustache's hair into the right shape with the simplest of brushing. In addition, the beard comb is of course not only intended for the mustache after trimming. Of course, the remaining beard hair also benefits from an extensive combing procedure, which was already the case with Rapunzel's long hair.
4. Beard trimmer
In conjunction with the right electric beard trimmer, your beard can get the optimal shape with a little sensitivity. The electric blade is suitable for trimming the length of the mustache. But the remaining hair is not neglected either, although in this case perhaps literally, because it is also brought to the right length with the help of the beard trimmer .
5. The right scissors
In order to be able to trim your beard, especially your mustache, it is sufficient to first get a pair of baby nail scissors. The rounded blades mean you don't run the risk of cutting your lips when you expose them to the hair above. If you prefer the more professional version, you can of course find it with us so you can trim your mustache.
6. Cutting contours
Be careful with cheap one-way razors! Even if contours can be created when trimming the mustache, any remaining stubble will remain visible. The beard hairs grow back continuously.
Beard contours should always be done with a razor. This is the only way to ensure that you get the clean look you want, especially if you grow your beard.
7. The right mustache styling
Extroverts can definitely take risks. With styling like the old emperors had, you will always stand out and keep the hip bar high. Using a variety of oils and waxes that are massaged into the beard hair will help you get your mustache into the perfect shape and keep it in this style.
8. Beard oil
Aftershave is old school. Today's man brings out the tempting scent through his facial hair. The essential oils and fragrances contained in the available male beard care products will delight you. A perfect addition to the mustache trimming procedure.
9. The right equipment

As barbers with over 20 years of experience in the trade, we were looking forstyling and care products that convinced us 100%. There were some good products on the market, but none that really gave us what we needed. After some consideration, we decided in 2014 that we wanted to develop our own series. For two years, every evening after work in the barbershop, we used every free minute to work on developing the recipes in our basement. When it came to ingredients, the best was just good enough for us. We purchased the best available jojoba oils in Morocco, and argan oil from Italy.
After two years and numerous tests, we had our first product range, with which we have been delighting our customers ever since - we think 98% positive reviews speak for themselves. This has of course been continuously developed since its official launch in 2016. This is just one of the reasons whyCharlemagne Premium products have won not just one, but several comparison tests in recent years.
