The San Francisco beard and mustache contest is going on right now at Edinburgh Castle. Check it out!
[SF Beard and Mustache Contest via Flavorpill]
From the best of craigslist: Looking for a beard mentor.
A friend spotted this sidewalk graffiti of a mustache on a San Francisco sidewalk. It says “Fake Mustaches (Very Funny)” and depicts a very Dali-esque mustache, with sky high handlebars. I have yet to determine if it’s ironic or not but I’ll get back to you when I do.
Annette recently submitted this picture of her husband’s ambitious sideburn-mustache combo. In her submission, she included a link to her blog, Neon Polish. While it is likely that the name of it refers to a neon shade of nail polish, I prefer to think that it is about a citizen of Poland who, for some unknown reason, glows a neon shade of yellow.
Anyway, Annette’s husband Derek is presumably that neon Polish chap, and the reason he is illuminated is because he has the human highlighter grown above his lip. While it may not have sprouted neon hairs, the aura of Derek’s stache is nothing if not glowing.
Stachist.com is to staches what AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com is to, well, awkward family photos.
Here we have four family mustaches taken sometime circa 1970. The short jean shorts, M*A*S*H T-shirt and tall, striped socks are all a dead give away. Individually, I’d say each stache is brilliant. Together, they make me feel a bit awkward.
Check out the rest of the site. It’s a hilarious waste of time and I think that they’re doing a good cause archiving incredible amounts of awkwardness that I never knew existed. I just hope I don’t show up on there.
This week’s stache comes from a reader who calls himself “Big Daddy.” Or could that be the name of his stache? Either way his boxcar-style mustache together with the vest and tie ensemble convey and air authority that only a father can command.
On a side note, I must say that the quality of the staches in our mailbox is getting better every week. Please keep ‘em coming! If you’d like to see your mustache featured on stachist.com, you may upload your photo here.
But this April, my favorite gift would have to be the mustache cake. No, not this mustache cake, a full on mustache-shaped cake. And no, this isn’t from a mold; the baker, my friend Lina, labored two days sculpting this 3-layered dessert.
See what the inside looks like after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
Nigel Barris is a man of his word. On April 10th, commenting on our brilliant post about DIY Sweatpant Staches, he was so inspired by the pants that he pondered growing a stache in order to submit his to us. Just over two weeks later, on April 26th, we received the picture to the left.
Nigel has an MTV Stache. That is, he could easily be a white rapper or skateboarder. On the wall behind him, drawings of Bob Marley and a seductively posed woman hang. If you listen closely, you can hear Miike Snow’s newest album in the background.
I want to hang out with Nigel. But most of all, I want to thank him. For promising, and delivering, a stache.
A Stachist fan came across the (scary?) masterpiece to the left on tumblr and sent it in. We always love the submitted staches- but the nude pictures of beautiful girls are getting a little overwhelming. We got into this for the love of the stache. Nothing more, nothing less. When the first topless photo came in, we were understandably surprised and excited, but 13,736 later (that’s 27,472 breasts by the way), we’re not sure we want to see any more boobs.
But we do love innovation, and this hairstyle is just that. We’re calling it “The Grinch’s Legs”. Little Cindy Lou Who has been put on notice.
Grow on, ladies (actually, no) and gentlemen.
