The wax is literally handmade, hand-poured and hand-tested by John in a quaint, rustic 2 bedroom/1.5 bath cabin in Mississippi. (See photos above.) The cabin is meant to generally be a guest cabin, but has now become Firehouse Moustache Wax Central! All wax is made in its kitchen area, which can get quite messy! There is no central heat or air in the cabin so John likes to heat his working area in the Winter with the large brick fireplace along with a gas heater that's in the wall. He likes to keep the windows open to have a little ventilation from the constant smell of wax, so it can stay quite cool in there despite the fireplace/gas heater. In the very hot months that Mississippi is known for, he uses a wall/window a.c. unit in the main area to cool things off, but still keeps a couple windows open.

Blends best with brown to black facial hair. Due to the natural variances in the waxes used, it can sometimes be darker or lighter than shown. Goes on lighter than it looks in the tin.

The main difference between our Tacky and Dark waxes is the Tacky is usually darker in color and tackier in texture.
