Movember! How not to do it…

For those who are not familiar with the term ‘Movember’, it is a organizational charity dedicated to saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we can’t stop there!

Now its November some of you guys are thinking of joining the craze and growing that one-off moustache for the year. For many of you though I’m sure growing a beard, let alone a moustache, may be more time consuming than it is for other guys you know, well one way of by-passing the painstaking process, as recently discovered, is a facial hair weave.

Now I know exactly what you’re all thinking; what the heck is this nonsense and I can only simply describe it as a fake beard unfortunately.

Facial hair weaves were only recently (and stupidly) thought of through the television show Americas Next Top Model. Currently the show is clawing its ways through its 21st season and with every series there is the always traumatic but awfully entertaining ‘make over episode’. Well this time they took it a step too far. In the show they simply glued a fake beard to one over enthusiastic male model and called it a ‘facial hair weave’. Generally a weave involves weaving real hair not just using super glue. I’m sorry but I have seen better beards in a primary school nativity play.

So to any man that is desperate enough to even think of this option I say to you stay beardless and just go with the stubble you got.

Share.
