(Redirected to Handlebar moustache article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A handlebar moustache is a moustache with particularly lengthy, often graspable, extremities. They are named for their resemblance to the handlebars of a motorcycle or bicycle. This effect is usually achieved by the use of moustache wax although it can be a hereditary trait as well. Similar styles of moustache are quite ancient, appearing on statues and other depictions of Iron Age Celts.

In the United Kingdom and other European nations, handlebar moustaches have always been closely associated with the British armed forces, particularly with the Royal Air Force in World War II.

In the United States, handlebar moustaches are considered stereotypical of the Wild West.
