Red Hook Mustache Wax 2 oz.Brooklyn Grooming ®
There is no end to the geometric, architectural and sculptural possibilities when you’ve got some facial hair and a tin of Brooklyn Grooming Mustache Wax.
There’s the classic handlebar, worn by men of distinction throughout history from President William H.Taft to Panama Jack. The Dali, the Fu Manchu, the Chin Puff, the list goes on.
The point is, if you can dream it, it’s possible.
Castor oil and kukui nut oil condition your sub-nasal caterpillar while beeswax gives it supple hold and pliability. If you’re new to mustache wax—and this is the best place to start—you may be surprised by its firm, thick, gummy texture. It’s basically mustache glue.
But hey, as you know, the hair of the ‘stache is probably the hardest, most bristly hair on the face—maybe the whole body. So even with the stiffened hold of the mustache wax, you may have to spend time “training” the hair to bend and curl and defy gravity. Don’t hesitate to apply heat from a blow dryer to encourage uniform shaping.

Red Hook smells like Bay Rum with hints of Cardamom and Citrus. Together these spicy essences create a complex aroma suggestive of cinnamon's swashbuckling older brother.
Why Name a scent Red Hook?The historical home of industrial factories and warehouses, a navy yard and a cruise terminal, Red Hook is the current home to a burgeoning enclave of young artists and fringe creatives. We wanted to create a smell that is uplifting and thought-provoking, that would reflect not only the passion and raw talent of Red Hook's newest denizens, but also pay tribute to the neighborhood's nautical and industrial roots. Based on a classic Bay Rum recipe, Red Hook's aromatic balance was meant to be at once both modern and timeless, with an extra something imparting the fragrance with an air of familiarity and mystery, honoring and celebrating past and future.
