Movember sees men of all ages take to sprouting ‘taches of different forms. There’s the handlebar, the Chaplin ‘tache, the Super Mario ‘tache. The point is there are many iconic moustaches and no doubt we’ll be seeing all sorts growing over the month of November.
The popularity of Movember has undoubtedly grown each year, it’s now on trend every November; dare we say it may be unfashionable not to sprout your own mustache. If you’re a Movember debutant, this year, then fear not! Here are the vital things you need to know.
The aim of Movember is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
“On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember.
So to get you inspired with Movember here’s a look the top 5 taches we could find. WARNING: May contain excessive hair growth, which some people may find disturbing.
We’ve also persuaded our radio Mo Sistas to Show off thier own Facial Foliage.
