If there is one joe I wish I had, it would be a flock-head with a Victorian mustache / sideburns combination to do a British Explorer type.

Yeah, that's the style. I'd actually prefer a head other than a Joe head...One that could be adapted to a Phicen body would be super, but jointed bodies would be a second choice.

Question, ...and I'm sure you'd be the person to ask.
I have no experience at all with flocking, but is there anyway at all with the longer flocks that you can get the hair/beard to lie flatter rather than sticking straight up, all seemingly radiating from a central point within the head somewhere.
Could it perhaps be brushed to the side while the glue is wet, or during the process?
Or brushed later with some form of hairspray to "style" the hair.
I notice that under the nose of those heads with beards you do have the hair falling downward rather than standing straight out.
As mentioned I know almost nothing of the process so I apologise in advance if these are ridiculous suggestions, but maybe you do know of some way this could be achieved?

Thanks for all the interest. No worries whatsoever about asking questions. I am a novice...only been flocking for just over two years. Believe it or not the heads pictured above have been brushed. If not the static electricity would make the fibers stick straight out... especially at the mustache area. You have to very careful when brushing too because of the glue underneath. I've never tried hairspray to get the flock to lie flatter but that's a great idea. Here are some more that I brushed...Long hairs Img_2023

The flock on the beards is certainly closer to what I'm looking for in that it falls more naturally rather than sticks straight out.
Not everybody has a crew cut.
What is the longest flock available?
Appreciate your experience in this field.
