Jack's back with his 12th yeard journey update, and he's finally going to talk about his mustache gap. Yes - the gap in the middle of his mustache that everyone comments about on Youtube. No, he doesn't shave that tiny gap into his mustache - it's just genetics, and he's ready to embrace it the Beardbrand way (own it and rock it with confidence).
Becoming comfortable with yourself is totally important - be it beard patches, a mustache gap, a curly beard, a straight beard, your body size - the things that are out of your control are important to own and accept so you can be confident in who you are.
The mustache gap happens in an area called the "philtrum" (or cupid's bow). If you have a large philtrum, it may cause a mustache gap to be more apparent. Hair is less likely to grow in these anatomical folds, so those with a smaller philtrum are going to have a less noticeable mustache gap. That's just the way the cookie crumbles.
If you're really not into your mustache gap, you can do a couple things. First, check out this video to help you style your beard and mustache accordingly:
Or you can use a comb and wax to comb your 'stache growth towards the center, concealing your mustache gap.
Always reach out with any other questions you have - we're here to make sure you keep on growing.
