Moustache Fun Facts

If you have had the pleasure of having our Advanced Stylist Carl Campbell look after your hair whilst in the salon, you’ll know he is a bundle of laughs and will come up with plenty of quirky conversation. Here he fills us in on some moustache fun  facts in recognition of Movember this month…

  • The oldest recorded moustache can be found on a felt carpet that dates back to 300bc. Check out the moustached horseman below from the Pyzyryk Siberian Iron Age!
  • Pogonotomy is a fancy way to say the act or process of cutting a beard…Umm that’s like an uber-complicated way of saying gotta have a shave!
  • An Indian man by the name of RAM SINGH CHAUHAN, holds the record for the longest mustache in the world! It’s 14 feet long OMG! His friend, who had a 7 foot long moustache, encouraged him to get in on growing a mo’!
  • King of Hearts is the only No-Mo-Bro…in a deck of card.
  • In the Victorian Era noble men would use a moustache spoon to protect their moustaches from soup!
