BRIANA: Facial hair seems like it’d be a more appropriate topic for a men’s fashion site, but mustaches have been making their way into the design world for some time now. Pillows, wallpaper, mirrors and more have been emblazoned with whimsical whiskers and searches for “mustache party” have been spiking on Yahoo! So, what are your thoughts on mustaches? Do you think the bristles are fun or should they stay where they belong (on Tom Selleck’s face)?

LEANNE: I do not understand this trend. At all. Tom Selleck, I understand.

KELLY SMITH TRIMBLE: I love Tom Selleck, but I really hate this trend. Mustaches are meant for men, not pillows and especially not children. I mean, I know the hormones in our meat are messing with kids’ biology, but mustaches on 5-year-olds is just weird. Quit forcing kids to grow up so fast. This little boy doesn’t want to wear a mustache — I can see it in his eyes.

DEANNE REVEL: That picture. Hahahahahaha

KELLEY: I’ve had a crush on Selleck since I was 16 and played the “T-minus 10 minutes and counting” game every week before Magnum aired. Decor and photo booth mustaches? Meh.

KELLY SMITH TRIMBLE: Can we all just get a Tom Selleck pillow? Like a full-body one? Is that too much to ask?

LEANNE: I’m in. In his short shorts, that were shorter than Daisy Duke’s.

DAVID HAYNES: Unsubscribe!  (Just kidding.)

KELLEY: Done and done, for only $36:

Now *there’s* a ‘stache worth decorating with.

FARIMA: The only place I like to see mustaches is at the Handlebar in Austin.

ALYSSA: The only time mustaches are cool is during Movember, when you get to watch all your guy friends grow (or try to grow) facial hair all in the name of a good cause — creating awareness about prostate cancer and screenings, and men’s health. Keep the whiskers confined to November and completely out of home design, fashion, iPhone cases, or really anywhere besides a man’s face.

LILI: I live in Brooklyn, epicenter of mustaches and I’ve had enough! Apparently, we as a borough even have created our own mustache wax:

It’s a lovely looking tin, but this facial hair should be left where it came from: the past. (And women pay a lot of money to get rid of mustaches! Why are they willing to pretend they have one?)

DEANNE REVEL: I don’t date men with facial hair. So I definitely don’t decorate my home with facial hair.

KAYLA: Yeah, I’m exhausted. BUT what’s all the ‘stache-on-man hate? I feel like I only date guys with facial hair. Also, for all my fellow Tom Selleck fans, like “Tom Selleck’s Mustache” on Facebook for a daily pic of his fab facial hair.

My favorite mustache:

Yeah, mustache decor is cute, but if I had to pick between kitschy trends, I would much rather be putting birds on things. Or sailboats.

BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN: I think it may have come about as a result of the steampunk trend [handlebar mustache and all] and now all this carnival-style decor, typography and vibe. Here are my thoughts: Shave the mustache from the face of pop culture, now. The End.

JACKIE MCGILVRAY: Mustaches are on the way out – beards are where it’s at, thanks to Major League Baseball and Duck Dynasty.
