Movember - The Finale

So here it is… one whole month of mouth brow growth. I think it’s a respectable amount of upper lip plumage for a month to be honest, although I’d be lying if I didn’t say I hoped for more. The beard seems to grow at a much faster rate for some reason.

I don’t even think it looks all that bad from a style perspective. I’m definitely glad I grew the beard stubble a bit, rather than being completely clean shaven, but all in all, my face furniture doesn’t offend me as much as it could have done.

Movember Update

Quick little update on how my moustache is coming along for Movember. I’ve got past the initial, awkward, in between phase of it just looking like nothing, thankfully! A few people are actually commenting on it, which means we’re venturing into the territory of it being a credible face adornment. I’m not quite at the point where I can look at styling it or training it too much into any particular shape, and it’s still a little messy and patchy around the edges.

Movember Update

Thought I should do a little update on my upper lip progress for Movember. The idea is that on November 1st, you should shave everything off completely, and then spend the month growing a full and luscious moustache. It’s been about a week since I shaved it all off, and progress is slower than I’d hoped for. At this point, I’m kind of looking at it and wondering if I’ll even be able to grow a decent mouth brow.

That being said, it has only been a week, and this is supposed to be a month long process, so I still have a long way to go before I’ll need to worry too much about my prowess in the lip warming department.

Too many men are dying far too young. Around three quarters of all suicides are committed by men, and it’s currently the biggest killer of men under 50. On top of that, more and more men are being diagnosed with prostate and testicular cancer, especially over the age of 45, and yet none of this is spoken about for the most part.

Movember started back in 2003 when two Australian friends, having decided that the moustache needed to be brought back into fashion, decided to try and raise money for charity, specifically a mens health oriented one. The Movember movement was born.
