If you really want to style you stache or even just want to make sure it stays under control, then investing in a good mustache wax is a very good idea. Sure there are all sorts of sprays and hair gels that might be an option, but personally I believe a manly mustache can only truelly be achieved using mustach wax. So what is the best mustache wax?

My 5 Top Choices For Best Mustache Wax

Below I look at 5 of the best mustache wax options you could find. Are there other good options out there that will work you? Yes, more than likely! There are a lot of different waxes and you might have to try a few out to really decide which wax is the best mustache wax for you.

Wild Willie’s Mustache Wax

Formulated with all-natural, organic ingredients, Wild Willie’s Mustache Wax is the best mustache wax of choice for those who are ingredient-conscious. The 7 carefully picked butters, essential oils, and vitamins combine to form a hard wax hold with significant mustache growth benefits. I think this is the best mustache wax for somebody who is trying to grow out their mustache and wants to give it maximum growth benefits while providing a medium hold.

Pros

  • Comes with small scraper to remove product from tin
  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Doesn’t liquify in heat
  • Masculine cedar and pine scent
  • Mustache-conditioning ingredients keep mustache healthy and growing

Cons

  • Small amount of product (container is about the size of a nickle)
  • Doesn’t hold up in extreme heat or humidity
  • Waxy, glossy appearance when applied too heavily
  • Medium hold is not enough for very long or thick handlebar mustaches

Premium Beardsmen Spirit Mustache Wax

This medium-hold mustache wax gives a pliable but strong hold. The formula is easy to work with and the wax warms up quickly between the fingers. It claims to have a “subtle, woodsy smell that is not overpowering.” This is another wax that might work well for somebody who is growing out their mustache, but probably not the best mustache wax for somebody with a long handlebar mustache that has a lot of curl and requires a firm hold.

Pros

  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Yellow/amber color dissolves completely and leaves no visible residue on mustache
  • Long-wearing hold
  • Conditioning ingredients soften and condition mustache hairs over time

Cons

  • Won’t hold up in extreme humidity or heat
  • Difficult to remove
  • No firm-hold option
  • Scent is somewhat overpowering
  • Formulated with petroleum jelly, which has a strong scent and can cause breakouts

Fisticuffs Mustache Wax

Fisticuffs Mustache Wax starts out soft and becomes stiffer as it dries. This formula is ideal for handlebar mustaches, as it is pliable and easy to work with but dries to a firmer hold. The scent is different than most other beard waxes I have tried, with a subtle citrus scent and a hint of beeswax. Beeswax is its primary ingredient, giving it good hold, with added jojoba and coconut oil to condition hair and encourage growth. This is another good option for somebody looking for growth and a medium-firm hold. Its tacky finish adds extra hold versus its medium counterparts. For new mustache growers, this is a contender for the best mustache wax for a somewhat more natural handlebar mustache.

Pros

  • Pleasant, subtle scent
  • Pocket-size tin for easy travel
  • Won’t discolor mustache or leave chalky residue
  • Tacky finish adds extra hold

Cons

  • Tends to flake towards the end of the day
  • Won’t hold up in extreme humidity or heat
  • Not substantial enough hold for very long handlebar mustaches
  • Difficult to remove

Firehouse Moustache Wax Wacky Tacky

Firehouse Moustache Wax was founded by a fireman in Mississippi who couldn’t find a wax to replace his favorite discontinued formula. He decided to create his own wax to combat the heat and humidity of Mississippi, and has been making this wax ever since. For mustache enthusiasts everywhere, Firehouse Moustache Wax is renowned as the best mustache wax on the market, known for its maximum hold even on long or thick mustaches.
The Firehouse Moustache Wax is versatile enough for all hair colors. It comes in three different colors (Light, which is suitable for blonde or light hair; Dark, which is for medium reddish-brown hair; and Wacky Tacky, which is a black-brown for the darkest hair colors). The formula is hand-made from scratch from the company’s “secret recipe,” which I’m guessing contains a significant amount of beeswax along with some petroleum-based ingredients.
Of the contendors on this list, I consider this to be the best mustache wax due to the virtually weatherproof maximum hold, versatility in color, and pleasant scent.

Pros

  • Excellent firm hold
  • Different colors for all hair types
  • Subtle but manly scent
  • Does not contain dyes or fragrances
  • Made to withstand extreme heat and humidity

Cons

  • Takes a while to warm up to pliability – the maker recommends carrying it in your pocket to let your body heat soften the wax
  • Somewhat more expensive than other brands, although it is significantly less expensive if purchased directly from the seller

Stache Bomb Stache Wax

Although it is formulated specially for handlebar mustaches, the USA-made Stache Bomb Stache Wax can also be used on sideburns, eyebrows, and goatees. The formula is a medium hold. I found that this is the best mustache wax for creating a “natural” handlebar mustache or holding a few unruly hairs in place, rather than holding a sharp handlebar mustache in place all day. If you’re looking for the best mustache wax for a very defined or curled handlebar mustache, you’ll want to stick to something with a stiffer formula.

Pros

  • Soft, pliable formula is easy to work with
  • Very pleasant, subtle pine and citrus scent
  • Doesn’t leave white or colored residue
  • Ingredients condition mustache hair for softness and manageability

Cons

  • Softer hold is not ideal for serious handlebar curls
  • Contains petrol, which is noticeable in its scent and can cause breakouts
  • Somewhat wet or greasy appearance if too much is applied

Wrapping Things Up

Above I only looked at 5 mustache wax options, but there are of course a bunch of different waxes out there. I suggest you try a few out until you find the best mustache wax to suit your needs.
