Nick Offerman Reveals the Secrets of Ron Swanson’s Mustache


“Two weeks is a passable mustache. It’s like, ‘Yeah, that’s a mustache.’ But it takes longer for the upper nasal labial whiskers to reach the top lip. To grow the full ’stache is five to six weeks. Fun fact: facial hair is the provenance of the makeup department, not the hair department. We have this amazing makeup head named Autumn Butler, and she takes a lot of pride in maintaining Ron Swanson’s mustache.”

–Nick Offerman, talking to The Believer, about his luscious lip fur.
