THE MOUSTACHE IS THE FLAVOUR OF THE SEASON. HERE'S HOW OUR PLAYERS AND PLAYBOYS ARE FLAUNTING IT
Sonakshi Sinha hates her Lootera co-star’s moustache, but there’s no denying the character it lends to the Gunday guy. And trust the young star to wear it with a lot of elan. With an unbuttoned shirt or a suit. Equally cool.
His moustache is as striking as his super run for Team India. A 100 in his maiden Test saw the Delhi opener twirl his moustache. And the swashbuckling southpaw hasn’t stopped twirling it since.
Team India’s shining star with the ball at the Champions Trophy 2013 and the just-concluded tri-series in West Indies has grown in stature by growing a moustache. And ‘Sir’ Jadeja sure does it in style. “The reason behind my moustache is my family background. We are Rajputs and all the elder men in my family sport this moustache, so I thought it’s time I also try it,” he has said.
Gelled, side-parted hair, retro sunnies and that moustache… Akshay Kumar’s gangster Shoaib looks a delicious mix of the devil and the charmer. If the way a character looks is half the battle won, AK in Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara is already a hit.
If he was the worst thing about Vishal Bhardwaj’s disappointing Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, Imran Khan’s beard further added to the film’s put-off factor. And his Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara (picture above) moustache is no better, especially when you put him in the same frame with Akshay Kumar. Not every man can carry a moustache, Imran. We dig your clean-shaven look any day.
MAN VS MOUSTACHE
“Jiske paas moochh nahin, uske paas mann hi nahin hai” said Utpal Dutt’s Bhavani Shankar in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s laughathon Gol Maal. We loved the man, his moustache and his madness in this comic gem.
Celebrity hairstylist Savio John Pereira on how to max your moustache:
1 Make sure your moustache doesn’t fall on your lips.
2 You should also shampoo it. Your regular shampoo is good enough. Use a conditioner to keep it soft. To maintain it, it is good to moisturise.
3 Trim it every three to four days.
4 With a handlebar, the long hair works well. Thickish styles go well with shorter hair.
they dig, they don’t
