"The IMRI seeks to create a twitter experience like no other, and tickle your mustache at the same time. Using space age technology, you too can know the moment someone is talking about staches on the twitterverse.

Moustache Man Arrested in NYC


Sometimes when you mix art and facial hair, you get into trouble. The guy responsible for 'enhancing' billboards in NYC by adding some art of his own ended up being the victim of his own popularity:

"For street artists, sometimes acclaim can be the worst enemy. Case in point: Moustache Man (aka Moustache, aka the Moustache Bandit) beloved by New York City subway riders for his simple but witty trick of using a felt-tip marker to write the word "moustache" (always with the European 'u') in curly cursive script on the upper lip of people in various advertisements. He had successfully eluded the police for more than a year, but authorities announced that they managed to track down the rogue artist last week based on his "Internet bragging."

PavanoMo.jpgFrom Bleacher Report:

"While many players have succeeded in leaving their mark and cementing their legendary status, still others made their mark on the game in other ways--through their appearance.

In terms of facial hair, there have been many styles sported by ballplayers through the generations, earning nicknames for some, and ridicule for others."

A Sweet, Heady and Herbaceous Moustache Wax

foadwax.pngDoes your moustache wax come up short? Then you'll want to check out Foad Wax, from moustachioed film and TV make up artist Patt Foad:

"After much trial and error on myself, and on supporting actors in Film and TV productions, the majority of moustache waxes on offer left me wanting. I needed a grooming product that the everyday moustache fancier would appreciate, but also one that would uphold the high standards demanded for Film and TV.

I believe that versatility is the key to a good moustache wax. Firm yet yielding, stiff yet malleable with staying power! Innuendos aside, these are very important qualities in a facial hair grooming product. Qualities that I feel FOAD WAX delivers with gusto!

FOAD WAX is home made, sports a warm honey colour due to the naturally occurring pollen and Propolis in the pure English Beeswax, but dries and sets clear. After the facial hair has been dressed or tonged to the desired effect, enjoy your new face decoration and wear it with pride, whilst enjoying the scent of sweet, heady and herbaceous essential oils."
