No Shave November: A mustache for a cause
Update: November 1, 2011. Men: For more inspiration on your mustache check out the fine art of mustache-making here.
Men, step away from the shaving equipment. Women, prepare for a bout of stubble burn.
It's Movember: the month men grow their mustaches as they raise awareness for prostate cancer. The movement began in 2003, inspired by breast cancer awareness efforts, and has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, sprouting 'staches across all seven continents and raising $42 million last year.
For inspiration, I recommend the "Hair India: A Guide to the Bizarre Beards and Magnificent Moustaches of Hindustan," a photography book that celebrates the fine art of pogonology, or the study of facial hair. Or browse through the gallery of mustaches at the American Mustache Institute.
Some readers (I won't mention any names, Lieutenant Jerkface) have mentioned that Movember is not the only hirsute movement this month. You can also join up for Beardvember and go for full-face hair. Or you can hit up CityStache and purchase a mustache shirt to fund prostate cancer research for those of us who cannot grow a flowing mustache.
