Want to Look Like Coach Q This Movember? Follow These Tips

Who’s got the most recognizable mustache in Chicago? It’s got to be Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. 

According to reports, Quenneville has sported his lip whiskers for at least 40 years, and in a city known for head coaches with top-notch crumb-catchers (Ditka), Quenneville’s has become quite an icon.

Coach Q’s soup strainer is so legendary it even has its own Twitter account that regularly drops pearls of wisdom like “Smile and your mustache smiles with you. Shave, and you cry alone."

Even though the hard-charging Hawks coach might not seem like the kind of guy to spend a lot of time grooming his silvery 'stache, basic upkeep is required to keep any kind of facial hair looking its best.

So, with the annual mustache-growing men’s health campaign known as Movember set to begin Nov. 1, keep these tips in mind while maintaining that lower brow.

  • Keep it trimmed — In addition to a host of other services, most barbers should be able to keep a man’s mustache trimmed every time he sits down for a haircut. However, some do-it-yourself trimming might be needed between barber visits. For a closely cropped mustache, trim it once or twice a week. 
  • Keep it clean — Scrub your mustache the way you would scrub the rest of your face. Regular body soap and water should suffice with no need for shampoos or conditioners. For those that want to feel a bit more fancy, oils and pomades are available to keep the area moisturized and shiny. However, make sure to study their ingredients for any substances that might cause an allergic reaction.
  • Keep it combed — Just like the hair on the top of your head, your mustache should be combed daily. Inattention to brushing and combing could lead to your mustache growing in undesired directions.
