As a musician, Frank Zappa liked to push the established boundaries and challenge traditional ways of doing things. The same went for his signature facial hair, where he was a true Mother of Invention. Zappa wore a thick, angular mustache, as well as a large, squared-off Soul Patch. When done right, this style can really rock for you.

Make it yours. 

  • 1

    Shave or closely trim your cheeks, chin, and neck, while leaving the mustache and Soul Patch beneath the lower lip untouched.

  • 2

    With your Wahl trimmer, square off the mustache, allowing it to extend a half-inch to an inch beyond the corners of the mouth. Keep the ends of the mustache a bit longer for a downward finish.

  • 3

    Using your trimmer, shape the whiskers beneath your lower lip into a square or rectangle that extends approximately one inch towards the chin.
