How to Do a Pilot Mustache
A Pilot Mustache gets the most attention here on the ground. It’s a pretty easy look to grow and maintain. Go ahead. You don’t need flight training to land whiskers like these.
How to Do the Pilot Mustache Step-by-Step
With your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver, closely trim or shave your cheeks and chin clean but leave the mustache untouched.
The mustache should have a nice arch, keeping hair slightly separated from the top lip.
Trim a triangular shape of hair at the middle of the bottom lip.
Use your trimmer to trim occasionally throughout the week to avoid unwanted stubble.
