Welcome to November also known as “Movember” or “No Shave November,” the month where many are beyond ecstatic to not have to shave. It is the month where we see many trying to emulate signature mustaches such as the “Artist” like Salvador Dali, the “Genius” like Einstein, or maybe even the “Philosopher” like Friedrich Nietzsche. Whoever or whatever the reason, facial hair has become a popular accessory for November as well as a trend that contributes to a great cause.
Movember started as a nonprofit organization to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. According to the Movember Foundation, in 2013 they rose around $559 million and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries!
Another great foundation is No Shave November, which simply raises awareness for cancer, encouraging women to participate as well. That’s right ladies, you are allowed to bring the 70’s back this month; let your hair loose and those legs get mangly for a wonderful cause.
You can join a team or do it solo, either way this is a fun way to raise awareness and not worry about having an excuse for sporting a shaggy look this month.
Here are some famous Mustaches!
