If horseshoes are good luck, perhaps the horseshoe mustache facial hair style will bring some good fortune to your daily shaving ritual. The horseshoe facial hair style is like a mustache, but includes two long bars of mustache hair pointing downwards, often extending all the way to the chin. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look.

The Horseshoe Mustache Look

There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a mustache will be complicated. Here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the popular horseshoe mustache style:

  1. Step 1

    Step 1: Select a Fixed-Length Comb for Trimming

    The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your look. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm) for you to choose from.

    Even out your mustache hair length with the trimmer.

    Step 3: Define Your Mustache Shape

    Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your mustache to define the Horseshoe shape. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and this can help prevent clogged blades.
  4. Step 4

    But be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.
  5. Step 5

    Step 5: Prep Your Face

    Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare—the non-mustache parts—with a shave gel. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.
  6. Step 6

    Attach the razor blade onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5 blade refill fits the STYLER.

    Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Often

    Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent buildup of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.

    Step 9: Rinse, Towel, and Moisturize

    Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion to help your skin feel soft and comfortable.
