FIREHOUSE MOUSTACHE WAX
John Pitts, a fireman and a farrier in Mississippi, had quite the grooming challenge."I’ve sported a moustache for 24 years now. I have used waxes off and on during the past 24 years. The problem I ran into was that twice I found a wax I liked and then they no longer became available. I experimented in making my own wax but always would give up and let the idea rest. This last time I was bound and determined to make a product I could use, so I brought my ingredients to the fire station when I was off to experiment more. The men at the station got right in the middle of it, often offering ideas, help and even some referrals. Thus the name for the wax was created. So on days off at the station for the next month I added and took away ingredients and came up with today’s product.
Mr. Pitts' goal was to make a wax that had all the good features of a fine wax. This meant having a wax that would have a good hold but be workable and easy to apply. Since he work outdoors where the year round humidity and summer heat wreak havoc on moustaches, he had quite the challenge. In our humble opinion, we believe Mr. Pitts succeeded in this feat.
"I hope I have created a wax that can be enjoyed by most. This wax is suitable for a wide variety of moustache styles. Whether you are trying to hold a certain shape or control unruly hairs, this wax is easy to apply and will not run. Our waxes are made to get better with each use. They may be a little soft at first, but will get stiffer the more you open and shut the tin, which traps air in."
TO APPLY, simply push some up onto your index finger letting it curl up on your fingernail. Then wipe it on your thumb of the same hand. Rub the wax between your fingers for just a second and apply to your moustache with index finger, applying a little at a time using the wax off of your thumb. Some people may find it better to lightly run a comb or brush through the moustache once applied. Firehouse Wax is offered in a light or dark color as well as our unique "Wacky Tacky."
