No wonder, beard twirling - not chin and side whiskers, but moustache twirling - is back in fashion again. So you want to become part of the individual beard wearers. Well, you're standing in front of the mirror excited, but somehow your mustache doesn't really look the way you want it to. What now? Twirling a mustache is an art in itself that requires a lot of practice. So that your mustache doesn't look like it's a little "to the wind", it requires patience and experience.
So that you too can find your desired goal and learn the technique of twirling your beard, we will show you in the following 5 points how you can get your upper lip hair into the necessary shape and then twirl your mustache. After all, Kaiser Wilhelm drove the world of women into a complete frenzy.
The right length
First of all, your mustache must of course be of a certain length in order to be twirled properly. After all, even a locksmith cannot produce metal work without materials. The length of the hair is crucial for twirling the beard.
Since you are reading this blog entry, we are assuming at this point that the necessary length of at least 1.5-2.5cm is already there and we will skip to the next point. If this isn't the case, just come back to this blog entry in a few weeks to twirl your mustache.
The correct form
The correct shape of your mustache is crucial to being able to twirl your beard. It's obvious that when you twirl your beard, the hair towards your cheek needs to be a bit longer than the hair directly under your nose. In order to create a sensible look that also exudes a high level of care, it is important that your lip is not covered by facial hair. An overgrown mouth simply looks unkempt.
Which woman wants to kiss a man whose only part of his lower lip is visible because the rest is hidden under his facial hair?
To create exactly the shape described, use beard scissors. You can of course also find out how to deal with this and what constitutes it in our blog .
You then have to twist the other hair that is left longer into a mustache.
Care with beard oil
Before you start routinely twirling your mustache, your beard should be kept healthy in addition to being trimmed. Dry and brittle beard hair is difficult to shape and simply doesn't look as healthy as a beard that receives regular beauty treatment.
To ensure exactly this point, it is best to use a good beard oil first and foremost. Whether essential oils that conjure up great scents under your nose, or the pure care itself. Beard oils are a true delight.
You can see exactly what this is all about here:

Beardwax or beard wax is suitable for twirling your mustache. You can read here or here what the different beard waxes are all about, such as the Bavarian and Hungarian beard waxes.

“A healthy and well-groomed beard is important for a real man, that’s why we offer everything you need to keep yours doing so.”
As barbers with over 20 years of experience in the trade, we were looking for styling 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 why Charlemagne Premium products have won not just one, but several comparison tests in recent years.
