We've put together a killer list of must-have accessories for a range of differing follicle needs. The grooming essentials here work for mustache-growing novices as well as old pros who've been brandishing lip wigs for most of their life but want to up their mustache-styling game a notch.
If you’ve been growing out your ’stache for a while and are dogmatic about keeping your upper lip growth in place, The Vintage Beard Company's Death Grip mustache wax gives you the hardcore hold you need. This super-strong lanolin and beeswax mixture was designed with serious mustache aficionados in mind, and you need to add the right amount of warmth or heat to loosen up the wax before applying it.
This tiny handmade mustache comb is perfect for mustachioed fellas on the go. The fine rounded teeth, which won't snag on your hair, are cut from sheets of cellulose and make dragging a comb through your facial fuzz as smooth as possible. Stick this comb in your back pocket and pull it out whenever your mustache needs a little sprucing up.
Men with thicker beards know that if you sport a mustache, you need to trim the rest of your facial hair regularly. The battery-operated (we recommend rechargeable batteries) Philips Norelco beard/mustache trimmer with self-sharpening dual blades and a stylish transparent plastic casing is an excellent option for hairier guys. If you have to clip your beard down once or twice a day, you need this convenient trimmer.

If you don’t need a death-grip hold on your mustache, a three-pack of scented Fisticuffs mustache wax is more than enough to keep your lip hair in tip-top shape. These medium-hold waxes, each with a different scent, are made with a fragrant mixture of beeswax, jojoba, tea tree oil and other natural ingredients. If your mustache isn't on the coarser or unmanaged side of the facial hair spectrum, this pack of different waxes could be the solution you’ve been searching for.
Well-groomed men who want a mobile mustache- and beard-trimming option will be pleased with Braun’s sturdy washable and portable electric shaver, which comes with a handy twist cap to safeguard the foil when not in use.

It’s an outstanding choice for men with mustaches and facial fur who need to cut around their lip foliage in the car, at the office or when they're on the move.
