Being Mustachioed is on the Move

Tom Selleck may be on the celebrity ‘B’ list these days, but his ‘stache has earned an A+ for decades. Today, hipsters worldwide are growing the ironic mustache in unfortunate proportions.

Regardless of its size or misshape, the mustache will have a much more significant place this November. Since 2003, Movember is getting momentum as a way for guys to grow their mustaches but also promote men’s health issues. We hear plenty about saving the ta-tas and placing pink ribbons on everything, as we should. But serious issues like prostate cancer also deserve its time in the spotlight. 

Here’s how it works from Movember:

Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. 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.
So this month, while I can’t grow a sweet ‘stache, will support my guy friends in their cause to raise funds for prostate cancer research and awareness. My Grandpa Fitzie lost his battle to prostate cancer last year, so for me it’s especially significant.

I will bask and admire the Chevron, Dali, English, Fu Manchu, handlebar, horseshoe, walrus and combinations of hair on a guy’s upper lip.  But once December 1 hits, take a girl’s advice. Shave the ‘stache.
