The 10 Best Mustache Scissors

This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Sure, you can let your facial hair grow wild and unruly, but if you like to look a little more put-together, you'll need a good pair of mustache scissors. These options are sharp and small enough to get into the crevices around your lips and nostrils, allowing you to craft a dynamite handlebar, horseshoe, walrus, or anything else that floats your boat. Just be careful with them. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 07, 2019:

You may notice a certain feature that our top picks all have in common: a tension adjuster. While not essential for getting a good trim, a tension adjuster can help you customize the scissors to your liking, as well as ratchet up the pressure when you find them struggling to make a clean cut.

Several of the models on our list come with other accessories, like combs and carrying cases. While these additions are always welcome, we didn't factor them into our rankings, as we were more focused on providing options that were well-suited for shaping mustaches. We figured users could figure out a way to transport them on their own.

Of course, a pair of scissors isn't all you need to create a beautiful mustache — you'll also need some wax or beard balm. If you use the stuff, though, expect to find it gunking up your shears over time, so be sure to clean and oil them regularly for best results. Some, like the Ontaki Premium, are easy to take completely apart for this purpose.
