How to Do a Pyramid Mustache
Historians can’t pinpoint the exact time when the Pyramid debuted, but men have been marveling at its artistry for ages. The basic shape starts with a wide base at the lip and tapers up to a near point under the nose. When done right, the Pyramid can make you feel like a king.
How to Do the Pyramid Mustache Step-by-Step
Shave or closely trim your cheeks, chin, and neck while leaving the mustache untouched.
With the trimmer, create a sloped border that starts below the middle of your nose and extends to the corner of your mouth. If feeling particularly adventurous and skilled, you can create a more curved design.
Repeat the last step on the other side of the mustache. Make sure both sides are even and equally sloped. Each side should be a mirror image of the other.
Trim the lower edge of the mustache to prevent whiskers from crossing the lip line.
