Welcome to Firehouse Moustache Wax, LLC

I’ve sported a moustache since 1987 and have used moustache/beard waxes off and on during that time. Twice I ran into the problem of finding a moustache wax I liked, only to find out they no longer were available. I experimented in making my own moustache/beard wax for a couple years, 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 sometimes brought my ingredients to the fire station on days off to experiment more. The men at the station got right in the middle of it, often offering ideas and help. Thus the name for the moustache wax was created. For the next month or so I added and took away ingredients and came up with today’s product.

My goal was to make a mustache and beard wax that would have a good hold, but be workable and easy to apply. Since I work outdoors as a fireman and a farrier in Mississippi, where the year round humidity and summer heat wreak havoc on moustaches, I had a challenge ahead of me.

When I first contemplated the idea of marketing a mustache wax, I had an additional thought. I wanted to give something back to organizations that help others, and why not let the customer be involved by letting 25 cents per tin go to a different charity each year. Thus the idea of having a counter on my website that is updated approximately every month to let our customers know how much has been donated so far in that year. ( View the counter now)

I hope I have created a moustache and beard wax that can be enjoyed by most. This wax is suitable for a wide variety of moustache, beard and goatee 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. Each small batch of mustache/beard wax is personally handmade and tested by me. When I'm not on shift at the fire station or shoeing horses, I'm making wax at our home in Mississippi. I've created the wax to have superior hold to moisture/humidity, heat, wind or any other weather condition. We hope you'll enjoy it!

TO APPLY, simply push (not scrape) 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 Moustache Wax is offered in a Light or Dark color as well as our unique "Wacky Tacky" that’s a customer favorite. (See our ‘Tips for Applying Wax’ page for more detailed instructions)

I hope you’ll find this moustache and beard wax satisfying and enjoyable!

Thanks, John and Kristine! Please feel free to quote me in saying that your (Dark wax) product is the best moustache wax I have found, so much so that it has inspired me to keep my handlebar look for a long time. Other, more frustrating products have had me close to chopping it off in the past, which would be a tragedy as it has become my signature amongst my friends and colleagues! Keep up the good work. My best,

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your great product and great service. In this day we live in I am disappointed so many times in both quality and customer service while doing day to day business. Not so with Firehouse Moustache Wax. Consistently good product, fair pricing and great service make it a pleasure to do business with you. Thanks.
