The Wacky Tacky wax by Firehouse Moustache Wax was originally created by fireman Farrier John Pitts. Mr. Pitts was an avid moustache wax user whose favorite brand happened to go out of business. He took it upon himself to build his own wax made to withstand a variety of weather conditions such as heat, humidity, damp, and coldness.
Firehouse Moustache Wax “Wacky Tacky” has 3 variations:
Light Wax – designed for men with gray and/or blonde hair
Dark Wax – designed for men with a medium hair color
Wacky Tacky – designed for men with brown or black hair
Firehouse has held their wax recipe very close to them and the ingredients are not widely known at this point in time.
