Growing facial hair is a proud tradition in many parts of the world. Mustaches are a subset of facial hair and come in various styles. Handlebar mustaches are iconic, generally large and require time and energy to groom and shape properly. While waxing a mustache can be time consuming, it's not particularly difficult.

Clean your mustache. Wash it with warm water and remove any detritus.

Dry your mustache.

Scoop some wax from the container. Use your fingers to work the wax evenly through the mustache. You may only need to wax certain parts of the mustache, such as the ends. Experiment and see what works best for your mustache.
