There’s a lot to say about one mustache. There’s only so much time.
Even if you don’t know much about Salvador Dali, the Surrealist painter from the 20th century, you’ve definitely seen or heard about his iconic mustache.
True, it’s essentially a handlebar mustache on steroids, but the idea of a handlebar mustache being taken to extremes is just plain entertaining. Its corners stretch upward, outward, and are twisted into hoop-like shapes, to name a few things.
Remember, the Dali mustache was declared the most renowned mustache of all time in 2010.
The man was unquestionably deserving of his one-of-a-kind ‘stache. It would be an understatement to say he was quirky. “I don’t do drugs,” Dali said when asked if he was on narcotics. I’m a drug.”
Dali said his mustache was the only “serious” thing about him when questioned if it was a joke.
He also said that because he didn’t smoke, he grew a mustache and carried around a cigarette case with “perfectly positioned (fake) mustaches.”
But Dali’s mustache, which was as much an experience as it was a kind of facial hair, was anything but artificial.
If you have a Dali mustache, you are, to put it mildly, someone who enjoys making a bold statement. Dali is clearly a favorite of yours as well.
What Face Shape Does the Dali Mustache Look Best On?
If you have an oblong or oval face, the Dali will suit you perfectly.
What is the Best Way to Grow a Dali Mustache?
Allowing your mustache to grow long – and then even longer – is the most critical aspect of creating a Dali mustache. Shave the hair directly under your nose or comb it to the left and right to make a part.
When it comes to twisting it into form, you’ll need a lot of wax. To keep it in the Dali style, it will need to be maintained on a daily basis.
Who wore the Salvador Dali mustache famously?
Anyone else who wears a mustache like Dali is a copycat (and few others have worn it). But was King Philip IV of Spain the source of Dali’s inspiration? Philip IV’s paintings may contain the first Dali-like mustache.
