How to Do a Chevron Mustache
You don’t have to be a TV detective or pro football coach to look good in this fuller take on the Military Mustache. After fading in popularity for a while, the Chevron Mustache is back, even for those not looking for clues or pacing the sidelines.
How to Do the Chevron Mustache Step-by-Step
Using your Wahl trimmer or shaver, shave a strong, diagonal line from your nose to a point about a 1/4-inch beyond the corner of your mouth.
Trim any long stray hairs along your upper lip so the mustache is flush with the lip.
Allow your mustache to grow for a few weeks to achieve proper fullness.
Trim occasionally with your trimmer to avoid overgrowth and to keep the look fresh.
