Pre-19th – Early 20th Century Mustache Curler
1 in stock
Certain Victorian men of the 1800s (and the early 1900s) used wax to groom their handlebar mustaches, which like mustaches, in general, were very fashionable. Hardware was invented, and products were created to keep them as coiffed as the hair on the men’s heads. Metal and wood mustache curlers were among the inventions to create the handlebar curls. They worked the same way as a curling iron for women’s hair: Heat it, test it on paper to make sure it wasn’t too hot (if the paper turned yellow, it was too hot) and curl carefully. The content of this box is an actual mustache curler from this mustache crazed period. A true piece of Mustache history.
