A mustache can be a tricky proposition. For any potential upside, there's a whole lot of porn-y downside to contend with. But when it works? Well, just direct your attention to Alexander Skarsgård, who debuted his own at the Emmys. The guy looks fantastic. (The Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tux certainly didn't hurt.)

“The fun part of today... was figuring out how to incorporate the mustache into Alexander's look," says Kim Verbeck, who styled Skarsgård for ReVive Skincare. "It really turned into being the centerpiece."

(You do want the option to lose the 'stache if needed, after all.) She also says it's best to play it safe with the rest of your look. "Keeping the hair in a classic cut and style allows for having some fun with an unexpected mustache for a bit of edge. Keeping the old Hollywood vibe translates for every kind of man. Think 'what would Paul Newman do?'"
