Have a Handlebar? Let's see it and tell us about it. What wax, when did you begin and why... Me first since I did start this thread.....

I started mine in mid December and I started from a doughnut. So I kind of had a head start. I grew it because I'm thinking my Great Great Sicilian Grandfather had one. Plus I've always wanted one and being a bit eccentric and 52 years old I can do whatever I want...lol.

I use mostly Clubman wax in both chestnut and neutral for everyday. I also use glue stick when I'm playing shows. I have been meaning to pick up some Got To Be Glued but keep passing it up...

I've always admired them, but I can't stand having my moustache hang over my lip.

I've sported a handlebar twice, but both times the inconvenience and discomfort proved too much for me to handle. My preferred waxes were Firehouse Wacky Tacky and Rex Wax.

Joe, I never would have pictured you with a handlebar but I think it looks great! You look like a distinguished and refined "Bill the Butcher" from Gangs of New York.

I used to do the Clubman Neutral, also, in my FuzzyFace days.....i kept it `til I got tired of chomping on my oversized`stache when scarfing a sandwich ! On the other hand, they do a great job straining the flies out of the beer....not that I mind flies....I had names for `em....my brother did The `Bar his whole adult life ! He did the Clubman Neutral, too.
Actually, I think I did the `stache because it was "barbershoppy", and the wax made it appear as if I knew what the hell I was doing ! It appealed to me as a way to look groomed while being a lazy slob !! WORKED FOR ME !! TongueEuroBiggrin

Sorry about the poor cell phone picture. I typically use Hndlebars or Oregon Wild Hair wax. In this shot it has been mostly combed out for a more natural look.

Joe and Tom, those are fantastic! My dad used to have a handlebar but I never wanted to take the time with it. (I take too long with my morning grooming routine as it is. Rolleyes )
My 'stache is just your small basic soup strainer. Wink
