As week two of Movember draws to a close the herd is thinning and the facial hair is thickening as the follically gifted emerge from the pack. But Movember is much more than just growing facial hair. Yes, those men who are able to grow a mo have bragging rights for the month, but with a great mo comes great responsibility…grooming and styling!
For those who are actively participating in Movember, you may have now realised just how serious all this styling business actually is. So much so that movember.com has developed a style guide to help all mo-bros achieve their perfect look.
Our Kleenheat Mo-bro’s are no mugs in the style stakes and have already decided the style they will be sporting. It is no surprise that the Trucker style is the most popular; I mean who doesn’t want to look like Hulk Hogan for a month?
I checked in with our Mo Champion Chris to see what he thinks about all this style and grooming of the mo. Upon showing him the different styles he quite fancied the Connoisseur. Two weeks into the four week challenge, the Chris’stache is well on its way to a full blown trucker. To view some of the other fantastic Mo’s adorning the faces of the Kleenheat team, visit our mo page here.
Remember guys, style is about more than shaping that upper lip accessory, there is also some basic maintenance to be done. Here are three simple rules from movember.com on everything moustachery;
- Shampoo regularly. As fetching as they are, moustaches collect all sorts of things; and no matter how fine the food, it doesn’t belong in your Mo. Ever.
- Moustache hair is coarse and benefits from regular conditioning. Work a dollop of conditioner into your Mo then rinse thoroughly. It will make your hairy journey that bit softer, for both you and your intimate friends.
- Wash your face with a hot towel to steam and cleanse the skin under your moustache as it can suffer from drying and itching. No one wants that.
Grooming and styling the mo is all a bit of fun during Movember. It all forms part of raising the awareness and much needed funds for some of the health risks men face. Too many men are dying unnecessarily from prostate cancer. Each year around 20,000 Aussie men are diagnosed and more than 3,200 sadly die from this disease. There is still plenty of time to get involved with this great cause and help raise the awareness, so get mo-ing.
