Speaking of Female Mustaches

As per our recent discussion of fashionable women who sport mustaches, look how trendy this look has become!

“The Frida” reminds me of the time I was Frida Kahlo for Halloween and I ended up having to explain to people who she was. I was too vain to pencil on a mustache, even though of course I have a faint one of my own. Next time, I’m going full mustache, baby.

    You’re totally rocking the Frida. It disgusts me that people had to ask who you were dressed as. My boyfriend once dressed as black Hitler and people tried to rip his costume off in the streets.

    Just today,
    I saw that in urban outfitters and cringed that it was a nice normal shade of lady-like pink
    I thought I never had to see it again
    oh internet….
    I much prefer your Frida

    People had to ask who you were? Ugh. I weep for the future.

    I dressed as Frida Kahlo once during the Carnival…Here in Spain we know her, she is quite famous around here cause she was Mexican and between “latinos” we allways have links. She is one of my fav persons ever. By the way, u are very pretty at the pic, u remind me a lot my mother, one day I´ll send u a pic of her, she had the hair like you and the same red lipstick :)

    The fucking philistines!

  7. dust Says:

    Off course, some of us do need those mustaches, not everybody is blessed with natural ones like Mom of Sea.
    Your Frida looks like fun!

    Is it you on the photo????

  9. Jill Says:

    I was jake gyllenhaal’s character in brokeback mountain for Halloween several years. I penciled in a mustache!

    Great Frida.

  10. Bourbon Drinker Known as MJ Says:

    A+++ unibrow.

  11. Maja Says:

    Trendy mustaches, eh? Maybe I should stop waxing mine. And dye it pink.

  12. Lara Says:

    Ann, I weep for our future too.

    There was a Post Secret recently that said something to the effect of: “I hope me bleaching my mustache has made you as comfortable as plucking made me.”

    Really? Wax that shit.

    I inherited my dad’s dark hair and my mom’s pale skin. Do you know how many pairs of tweezers I have stashed around? Good lord. I’ve already made promises with girlfriends that if any of us wind up in a coma, we have to perform maintainance on one another. It’s something you have to think about! :)

    Gosh you’re gorgeous x

  14. Nausicaa Says:

    Philistines! Though you hardly have a moustache, Sister- I raise you my caterpillar monobrows and true, dark, proper moustache, and the memory of the good Frida- I can’t believe people once claimed she only got talked about for being Diego Rivera’s wife!

  15. RedheadFashionista Says:

    Your costume is fantastic (though you look more feminine than Frida paints herself as, which can only be a good thing). I’m saddened that people didn’t know who she was. I had a J-themed birthday party (my first initial) and went as Jekyll and Hyde, everyone assumed I was the Joker. Sigh.

  16. Braindance Says:

    I was once invited to a party where the boys dressed as girls, and girls dressed as boys.
    I went all out with my outfit, pencil mustache, braces, white shirt, gold tie, 1930’s wide brown trousers, brouges and slicked down hair.
    NOT ONE OTHER GIRL BOTHERED
    Just me, looking like an extra from Busgy Malone

    Having to ask who Frida is, is paramount to asking who Dali was.
    A’s with a captial hole springs to mind.
    You look kinda hot with your mono brow though, I like.

    OK: boastful mother time: my 7-year-old gave a presentation on Frida (in full dress and eyebrows) this year and my 10-year-old daughter has a complete mustache set that she wore with delight last spring. This fall was about the accompanying beard.

    I love that they do all this happily and confidently, utterly confusing the private school mothers who would never add facial hair to their carefully curated looks.

  18. theresa Says:

    my best friend had her first kiss at my college’s “drag ball.” she was mustachioed. and wearing an uncle sam costume. the most perfect first kiss scenario I can think of.

  19. Alicia Says:

    dust is hilarious.

    Frida was a great costume choice and the unibrow is on point. I hope the dumb-assed-ness didn’t ruin the night for you.

  20. Aja Says:

    I love those stick on ‘staches. You never know when you’ll need one so I keep them in my house.

  21. Trashforce Says:

    Your bone structure makes me die, in, like, a really rad way. Like, dark and tribal.

  22. Cricket9 Says:

    I don’t have a ‘stache, but I did have, like everyone in my family, a unibrow. It eventually disappeared due to plucking my brows in various forms and shapes. Wouldn’t mind to have it back. And Diego Rivera, IMO, can only hang onto Frida’s flouncy skirts.

  23. lucinda Says:

    That was a great Frida even without the moustache… who was at this party?!

  24. K-Line Says:

    Sister you are as iconic as Ms. Kahlo! I see you channeling her but you are SO delightfully YOU. xo

  25. erika Says:

    yah, i have a natural mustache..harder to wax as i get older. Raging hormones i hear.

    BTW I started sharing an office ths month. I can’t spend entire mndless days on the internet. I now have to pretend to work more… I miss it.

  26. Eliza Says:

    Could this really become a trend? I have to shave my moustache about twice a week. Depilatories burn, bleaching is conspicuous on olive skin, waxing only removes some of the hairs and makes me break out, and with the excessive bleeding my eyebrows produce I’d never try such a thing with the ‘stache. Of course, mine’s not feminine enough because it’s not pink like every goddamn thing marketed to girls since the gender-coded color shift of the 1950’s. Your costume is pretty damn inspiring, though. I might put on a shawl and go au natural this Halloween.

  27. hammie Says:

    I could tell right away. Wear big bazombas next time and be Salma being Frida being post modern ironic…
