So you've grown out a mustache. The context as to how you acquired one is really none of our business but possibly scenarios that come to mind:
You lost a bet.
You think you can look like Tom Sellek.
You want to look like your dad from the 80s.
You were just hired as a part time Civil War reenactment actor.
You're single and your newfound freedom allows you to shave or not shave some of your facial hair.
Whatever it is, congratulations! You are now the proud owner of stylish accessory that has adorned faces throughout history.
The first question you want to ask yourself is: What do you want to do with your mustache?
If you have a handlebar mustache, and want to do some serious styling with it, then you want to use the stiffest wax you can possibly find. The stiffest waxes are going to contain beeswax and by that I mean, they are going to have A LOT of bees wax. Look for these words on the container: Strong Hold.
On the other end of the spectrum, if you just want to grow out a mustache and keep it looking nice, then look for a softer mustache wax. A softer mustache wax will have a medium to a light hold and they won't necessarily contain beeswax. They will have other ingredients, such as softer oils, like shea butter or coconut oil, with a lower melting point. A softer mustache wax is going to be similar to a beard balm, by taming the fly-away-hairs and calming the shape down a bit.
The amount of shape and level of control your mustache needs is entirely based on personal preference, and perhaps leans into the context in which you grew one. It's up to you!
