It’s like having a beard on your top lip with a walrus mustache. Well, maybe not quite, but there’s no doubting that the walrus is one of the mustache styles that allows you to grow a lot of mustache.
Walruses are known for their thick, bushy beards that drape over their mouth. The style got its name from the fact that it mimics walrus whiskers.
The walrus mustache has a lengthy history and was quite popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when it was worn by everyone from cowboys to philosophers and scientists.
Not to mention novelist Mark Twain, who had a magnificent walrus mustache.
The walrus is easily confused with the Chevron mustache. The walrus, on the other hand, is more rounded and overgrown than the Chevron.
A few things to remember about the walrus style: if you’re wearing it, you’re generally older and prefer the simpler things in life.
You’re patient and funny, but if pushed past your limits, you’re not to be trifled with. Women think you’re a sweetheart, but “sharing your feelings” isn’t something you enjoy doing.

If you have a rounder, larger face, but not a longer one, the walrus style is for you.
How to Grow a Mustache Like a Walrus
When it comes to cultivating a walrus mustache, you’ll need some patience. Allow your mustache hair to grow naturally for three or four months, if necessary, until it has thickened significantly.
Allow it to grow until it completely covers your top lips and even your mouth. During the growing phase, resist the impulse to trim it!
You’ll need to comb it every day once it’s reached full volume and length to keep it in the form you want. Only cut it’s length and volume when it’s absolutely necessary. It’s not unreasonable to imagine it as a beard above your mouth and lips.
What Celebrities Sport the Walrus Mustache
American president Theodore Roosevelt, rock singer David Crosby, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Jamie Hyneman of the television show “MythBusters” are among the names on this unusually extensive list.
