Upcycle to Create Your Own Mini Moustache

I saw this on Etsy and thought it was too funny not to share. Its a great upcycling project for kids and adults alike. Moustaches are not the only things you can create.

From Etsy:

Knit Beard Hat - Stylish and Practical

While I realize these are more appropriate for fall and winter, I just saw a new video that featured someone wearing one, so I had to know more . . .and then share it with you!

I found several sites with information and pictures. If you like the look of them, you can beat the Christmas Rush and order or start creating one now. The links are below the video.

Below is the short video clip showing someone wearing one. Enjoy!

The Goatee That Isn't a Goatee

Photo © Chance Agrella
Though commonly called a 'goatee', the facial hair that is below the mouth and includes a mustache is not a goatee, but technically a 'Van Dyke'. The common misuage of the name has made the term 'Goatee' an accepted name for the Van Dyke style, though hair professionals and other familiar with both styles and terms tend to differentiate between the two.

If you are asking for help with shaving or styling it may be important to keep the difference in mind.

I personally prefer the look of a Van Dyke over that of a Goatee, however, I have seen some men who were able to pull it off.

With that in mind, here are some quick links to info about Goatees and Van Dykes.
