We have definitely come a long way from the clean-shaven old spice era…Today facial hair on men are no longer considered rude or unruly. Rather a man with a Mo or Beard is looked up, looked at, and looked well after for the style exuberance he emits.
Read on to know what makes November even special to talk about this cult of men who are on the journey or have reached their destination to be beard-ful!
‘Movember’ or ‘No Shave November’ is a trend where men put down their razors and don’t shave for the entire month of November to raise awareness about men’s health issues. (largely prostrate cancer, testicle cancer, mental health and suicide prevention).
The trend started by two guys in Australia began with growing a ‘mo’ustache in November to bring the ‘Mo’ back in the fashion scene while addressing a great cause. The ‘Mo’ movement since then has extended worldwide and ‘Movember’ has seen a style extension by men growing fashionable facial hair in form of beards along with the macho moustaches.
This initiative to change the face of mens health was started in 2003 by the Movember Foundation and is today a global phenomenon with support from over 5 million people till date.
