The 5 Most Famous Mustaches Through the History
If you are looking for an inspiration for your next mustache style, some of these styles might be of help to you. These styles are regarded as the most famous in history.
1.The Dali Mustache
This style would definitely make you stand out. The Dali Mustache is one that grows out at the edges to curve upwards. You might need to apply a lot of gel to get the upward curves.
Of course, this style was named after the man himself, Dali Salvador. Many knew him to be one of the best surrealist painters of his time, but his mustache was probably his most famous work of art.
Even long after his death, his mustache still lives on, literally. When his body was exhumed 28 years after his death, his mustache was still intact. Some things just never die, I suppose.
2. The Toothbrush Mustache
The toothbrush mustache is the one where the edges are shaved off of the mustache, leaving a thick bit right on top of the upper lip.
In his prime as an entertainer, Charlie Chaplin wore his mustache in this style. Some years later, this same mustache style was sported by Adolf Hitler. Whether Adolf Hitler got his inspiration from Charlie Chaplin or not, only Hitler can tell.
This mustache style could be his personally favoured style or one he used for his blockbuster comedy movies. Either way, the Charlie Chaplin toothbrush mustache did go down as one of the most popular in the history of mustaches.
3. The Walrus Mustache
This is the extremely bushy, upper-lip-covering mustache. There isn't much work needed to grow this one.
You just have to leave your mustache till it grows to be very bushy, then you trim it to keep it in shape. Maybe the ease and efficiency of keeping this style was what made Albert Einstein like it.
4. The Horseshoe Mustache
The standout horseshoe mustache is a thick one that sits atop the upper lip and makes a vertical fall to the chin at the edges.
The first thing that probably stands out to many people the first time they set eyes on Hulk Hogan is this mustache.
Before they work their minds to the fact that he was a formidable wrestler in his prime, his looks may have given them a reason or two to chuckle.
5. The Chevron Mustache
Chevron Mustache is the bushy but delicately trimmed kind that sits atop the upper lip without covering the mouth.
In the years that Tom Selleck was at the peak of his acting career, thick mustaches were markers of ultimate masculinity.
And the veteran actor glady rode that belief into the hearts of many who watched him with his expertly trimmed mustache. Groucho Marx was another popular wearer of this style.
On a final note, keep in mind that if you intend to maintain any of these mustaches, then you would be needing top grooming products.
