Step 1: Dampen mustache Slightly dampen your mustache with water. You don't need much, just a bit. Step 2: Comb mustache Comb your mustache with a fine-toothed comb in the direction that it grows. Step 3: Trim for shape Trim first for shape and definition. Clip across the bottom of your mustache, giving it a smooth even line, and clip along the outer edges to give it distinctive parameters. Tip If you're using a mustache trimmer, start with a setting that will clip the least amount of hair. You can always go back and trim more, but trimming too much will trash your 'stache. Step 4: Trim for length Now trim for length and bushiness. Start at the middle of your mustache, and begin lightly trimming out to the edges. Tip Mustache hair is tougher than other facial hair, so trim just a little bit at a time for better results. Step 5: Comb mustache Comb through your mustache one last time, clip any hairs you may have missed, and wink at the macho man in the mirror. Did You Know? Groucho Marx's original signature mustache never needed trimming—it was made of black greasepaint.
