History of the Moustache

Throughout history, moustaches and cultural attitudes have been changing. At times they have been praised, while at other times they have been banned. The moustache has experienced different periods, from the moment the first prehistoric people began to remove some of the hair on the face, and to this day when the trend is beginning to return. In the Middle Ages, the Prince of Wales was the first to wear a moustache on his face. However, only later in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth could it be said that the moustaches became a fashion symbol. In the 17th century, there was an aesthetic and cultural trend in the cultivation of twisted, spiky moustaches, while in the 18th century, many romantics such as Lord Byron continued this tradition. During that period, the moustache was wrapped and quite “weak”.

The dark age of the moustache emerged in the 19th century when the moustache was cultivated only by individuals, most often soldiers. After the end of the First World War, many were forced to shave. Since 1920, moustaches have returned to fashion and become a symbol of the intellect and seriousness. In the 1960s, new styles in shaping moustaches appeared.
