Horseshoe moustaches are a classic look. A good horseshoe moustache is well-sculpted, trimmed, and maintained. The origin of the name is clear—it looks like a horseshoe—but that doesn’t mean it’s simple to sculpt and maintain. It can easily become a different beard style by mistake—a Verdi beard, a ducktail beard, a Hulk Hogan beard, a Garibaldi beard, a handlebar moustache and Dali moustaches are similar, but not quite the beard design or moustache style we’re going for.
Shaping any distinct moustache design is often harder than you originally think. Fortunately, the horseshoe is a relatively simple shape. It’s perfect if you’re just starting out with experimenting with your facial hair and beard growing. It’s also a great choice if you know the short beard style you like. Another great thing about the horseshoe is that it’s friendly to most hair types. If you have thick, luscious hair or if you have thinner, longer hair, you’ll be able to shape your beard and moustache into the horseshoe design.
