This might sound funny but when it happened I have a really bad feeling about it. I have a handle bar mustache and my friend thought it might be a faster way to form the loop in the handlebar using a curling iron. Well I told her to PLEASE make sure to put a comb between my face and the curling iron and the right side she did just fine. It wasn't the same for the left side as while she held the curling iron with my whiskers wound up in it I hurt the clink of the comb hit the floor and before I knew it the iron touched my cheek and now that it has healed I have a red scar. What would you suggest I use to lighten or even get rid of this type of scar?


Trust me, I will never let any one to that to me again and from now on I will stick to my tried and true hard mustache wax and blow dryer! I will forever be fearful of curling irons from now on.
