Tools of the Trade
In the video, Jason uses the following products to achieve the perfect shave and styling of the mo.
Quattro Titanium Precision (RRP £9.29) is the ultimate Movember styling tool. The first 3-in-1 wet razor to combine a razor, styling blade and trimmer in one great gadget and an essential for all Mo Bros when taming bigger and harder to style mos. This clever waterproof razor with its titanium coated blades give a smooth, sharp finish for use in or out of the shower on those busy Movember mornings.
Wilkinson Sword’s Hydro 5 (RRP £8.19) will give you the ultimate ‘shave off’ leaving your skin in prime condition to grow your mo. The hydrating gel reservoir adds moisture with every stroke and skin guards on its UltraGlide blades help reduce nicks and cuts to ensure your face stays super soft. And with a simple flick of the thumb, Hydro 5’s flip trimmer is ready to edge and trim – great for defining smaller and easier to manage mos. Use alongside the Hydro Shave Care (RRP from £3.09) to boost skin hydration.
Choosing which mo to grow is the first challenge of a new Mo Bro recruit. Check out our 6 custom mo designs below for inspiration. Keep in mind the size of your face – smaller faces need a small mo whereas more striking, larger faces need a more prominent style. Keep longer moustaches in check with the Quattro Titanium Precision trimmer, or create exacting mo shapes with either the Hydro 5 Flip Trimmer or the Precision Edging Blade.
< The Rascal
If ‘Danger’ is your middle name, style up this bad boy for a look crafted to roguish perfection.
How to: Grow your mo along the upper lip about 2cm in length. As it passes the edges of the mouth, groom the hair using Quattro Titanium Precision Trimmer. Allow your mutton chops to flourish so they grow down your face and meet with your sculpted mo.
The Eccentric >
If you’re the off-the-wall life-and-soul, get trimming and create the minimal look with maximum effect.
How to: Precisely sculpt each side of your mo leaving only an inch of hair in the middle. The rest of your face has to be fuzz free, so use the hydro 5 razor for the best shave for your skin.
< The Connoisseur
If you scream sophisticate and scoundrel in one, why not don the best way to finesse your face?
How to: Grow your mo in to a perfect rectangle along the upper lip, using the Hydro 5 flip trimmer to create neat edges. Curl the ends up using your fingers and add a little wax to hold in place.
The Maverick >
If you are a bit of a loose cannon then you’ll appreciate the crafted chaos of the marvellous mo on every wanted list.
How to: Grow hair over the upper lip and groom the edges so they finish about 1cm past your lip. Maintain the curved edges regularly and keep the length in check with the Quattro Titanium Precision Trimmer.
< The Visionary
If your look and mind are way ahead of their time, shape the only style that can keep up.
How to: Grow the hair long above the upper lip so it can be parted and pulled to either side. Once the hair gets to a decent length maintain the neat edges with the Hydro 5 flip trimmer.
