Mustache Q&A

Another question from a reckless Mustache Revival reader who wishes to remain anonymous...

Dear Mustache Revival,
I have had a mustache for several years and for New Year's Eve I decided to shake things up a little and I shaved off my mustache. As soon as my long time girlfriend saw my bare upper lip she broke it off and moved out. She is the love of my life, what should I do?
Desperate in Detroit.

Well, first off you have no one to blame but yourself, and I don't know what kind of results you were expecting from such an audacious move as shaving your upper lip, but my advice is to immediately grow back your lip sweater and purchase an engagement ring and propose, because she sounds like a keeper who is obviously more committed to the mustache lifestyle than you are. Good luck, and as always your mustache questions can be submitted to mustacherevival@gmail.com.


  1. Is this a real question? Because I find it hard to believe that a woman would end a relationship because of lip hair.

  2. Yes, this is a real question I received, but I doubt the upper lip shaving was the real reason behind the break-up. It was probably chronic halitosis or video game addiction and the shaving was her boiling point (in my humble opinion).

  3. If you don't think shaving off a mustache is grounds to end a relationship, then you are under estimating the power of a mustache my friend.
