Salvador Dali, the eccentric revolutionary surrealist painter and his famous mustache made news.  Lluis Llongueras, did his hair for 30 years (from 1961-1987) and in the Llongueras Book, “Mi Dali Particular (“My Very Own Dali”)  Llongueras says he also did his famous mustache and advised Dali “to stiffen it with a juice of dates and sugar to keep it upright.” The mustache has stood the test of time.  When Dali’s remains were exhumed in 2017, for a paternity case, the forensic’s experts were startled to find the mustache was still intact.  For more on the 2017 discovery, CLICK HERE  For more on Llongueras, Dali and an anecdote, click:
