How to Do a Horseshoe Mustache

Will the Horseshoe bring you good luck? There are no guarantees but if done right, this style can bring you a good look, at the very least. It’s ideal for men with round or angular faces but not for those with long or oval faces because it will only accentuate the facial length.

How to Do the Horseshoe Mustache Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Using your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver, shave or closely trim your cheeks, leaving the mustache, chin and area surrounding the mouth untouched.

  • 2

    Using your shaver, create a vertical line of hair about 1/2-inch wide from the corner of the mouth to your chin. Do the same on on the other side, paying close attention to keeping both sides even.

  • 3

    Using your Wahl trimmer, trim the upper edge of your mustache to create a sharp border, leaving just a 1/2-inch of hair. The hair should create a continuous horseshoe shape from above your lip to your chin.
