Part-Asian that 30-something that has never tried to grow a real moustache. Tips?

Hello.  I am wondering if anyone has had the same (lack of) experience as I have with weak facial hair growth.  I want to go for a slightly devilish, Pirates of the Caribbean look, without connection between my chin and lip.  Does anyone have good luck with moustache wax to encourage it to grow out to the side instead of straight out like cheese curls?  And are people really putting Rogaine on their faces?  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

You have some decent coverage on your chin, and your soul path looks fine.  You have slightly less on your lip.  Your goatee will likely be fine, but the mustache is going to be hard won. 

 

I suspect, as with so many things, time is going to be your friend.

 

My own beard started by sticking straight out.  It's only now, after a month of growth, just beginning to lay down and look neater.

Time and at least you have dark hair.  Growing a good mustache with blond hair would take even longer.

I guess I have always shaved it off at two weeks max because it wasn't doing anything.

Explain this anti-rape add to me, please

Hi folks,So, friends of mine brought this to my attention, because they considered it hilariously funny:Now, it seems that this is not a hoax, but, like, a real advertisement made by an institution or initiative that seems to take itself very seriously:http://www.rapecrisisscotland.org.uk/…See More
