Hands Off That Razor, It’s No Shave November/Movember!

Why? Because we can.

It’s that time of month again. You know, the one where men will not let a single blade touch their face for a solid month. That’s right! November is the month where men like to raise awareness of facial hair and November.

There are two iterations of this so called month of no shaving. The first, called “No shave November” is simply laid out; you don’t shave during November. Men will grow facial hair with no ryme or reason just to prove how manly they are. The other, coined “Movember”, has motive that can’t be turned down. Movember may be another excuse to grow facial hair, but it really is there to help raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. When you register at, you essentially give up the razor for the month and get sponsors to raise some cash.

So, how can you participate? Well, you should have started with a clean shaven face yesterday (Halloween). Beginning today, the beard and or mustache should be unscathed.

How do you grow facial hair? You either can or can’t. But there’s more to growing facial hair then letting it grow. At least that’s what Nick Offerman says.

Regardless of whether or not we can grow a full beard or a disgusting mustache, the main idea is to get the word out that prostate cancer is just as deadly as breast cancer. We just don’t need to wear a silly ribbon to show our support.
