Maybe I'm overlooking something considering the simplicity of my solution. But if you are creating a separate unique poly mesh to grow the mustache fur from, then couldn't you just wrap deform that mustache poly mesh to the main face geometry, so that when it deforms with facial expressions it follows along and therefore the mustache follows along?

Based on the image I think using Maya Hair might be a better approach. It is better for getting that look and length. Fur would work too! All depends on how animated you want it to be. If you use a separate mesh just make sure the verts all match the underlying geometry and then bind it as you did the original head mesh. Copy the weights. Turn off its rendering capabilities in the AE. All done.

if you render with Mental Ray , you might want to check out puppet_shaders

which has a fur-shader , that is much faster , than the one from mayas-mental-ray-implementation

here is a great tutorial on , how to use it

and maybe you want to put the fur , on a seperate renderlayer - for the final rendering
