To trim your mustache, dampen it slightly with water, and apply some mustache wax evenly. Use a fine-toothed mustache comb to comb your mustache downward before trimming along the top lip with a pair of scissors. Lift small sections of the mustache hair using a comb, and trim to the desired length. Comb downward again, and check for evenness.
- Prepare your mustache
Moisten your mustache lightly with some water, making sure it's damp but not saturated. Apply a bit of mustache wax evenly throughout your mustache. The wax facilitates trimming and ensures that every strand stays straight throughout the process.
- Comb your mustache downwards
While your mustache is still damp, comb it downwards using a very fine-toothed mustached comb. The strands should all go in the same direction and be perpendicular to the floor.
- Do the first trimming
Use a pair of scissors or a beard trimmer to trim your mustache along your top lip.
- Thin out the mustache slightly
Lift small sections of the mustache hair away from your face using a comb, and trim according to your preferences. This process helps remove some bulk from your mustache and prevents it from becoming too bushy.
- Shave any stray hairs
Use a razor to neaten the top of the mustache and shape it a bit.
- Check for evenness
Comb your mustache downward again, and check if all the strands line up perfectly. If not, do slight trimmings until your mustache looks even and level.
