Moustache Season Kicks Off With Clean Shaves All Over the World
The Movember Foundation, a global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health, is getting ready to officially kick off the 2014 “Movember” campaign with tomorrow’s “Shave the Date” promotion. The idea is for men (and women with wicked chin-scratch) to shave clean and start growing a moustache, and only a moustache, for 30 days. Movember moustaches spark conversations and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Men and women can join the global movement by signing up at Movember.com. Men will start November 1 — also known as Shave the Date: Movember 1st – clean-shaven and grow only the moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their moustache-growing efforts.
Here’s a list of local “Shave the Date” events that you and your moustache can check out on your last day together, as a team, for the next 30 days.
If you’re in LA, check out the Movember and Co. barbershop seen above.
Movember is the leading global charity committed to changing the face of men’s health by sparking conversations though the growth of moustaches throughout the month of November.
The Movember Foundation exists to bring attention to health issues men face; specifically to reduce mortality from prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. And, to have fun while doing it.
But why? Lots of reasons, all men’s health specific:
- The average life expectancy for men in the United States is almost five years less than women.
- One in two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
- 12.1% of men 18 years and over are in fair or poor health.
- Men are 24% less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year.
Movember (the month formerly known as November) is used to spark conversation about and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Movember is entering its 11th year as a charity and has raised $550 million during that time frame.
So how does it work?
1. Sign up and become a “Mo Bro” at Movember.com. Must begin the 1st of Movemeber with a clean shaven face.
2. Grow and groom a moustache for the entire month. No beards, no goatees.
4. Use the moustache to create conversations and funds about men’s health.
5. Have fun.
What’s more masculine than a moustache? Nothing. And, what is more fun than a “Moustache Ride?” Uh, nothing duh.
Movember starts this Saturday.
On a first date with a hot babe, whether you’re five or 85, you’ve got to use everything in your arsenal to seal the deal.
Axe and Philips Norelco have your back, so you can “make love, not war.”
57% of women said “Sexy Stubble” is the most popular look, followed by clean-shaven at 31%. Philips Norelco and AXE have teamed up to create a line of awesome shaving and grooming tools.
The first component of the survival kit is the AXE Smooth Things Over Face Wash. Even if you are the smoothest man in the world, with a can of smoothness on the ready, AXE will help you prep your skin with the unique Peace fragrance.
Number two (“Who does number two WORK FOR?!) is the AXE Smooth Things Over Shave Gel, made for a clean shave or for tidying up below your neck area.
Numero tres is the AXE Philips Norelco Shave & Groom kit. AXE & Norelco will double team your face like Dennis Rodman and Jean-Claude Van Damme. All in the name of cutting every hair on your body smoove off.
Number four like Brett Favre and his “Weinergate” scandal, lets you trim your stubble perfectly with up to 20 settings. You can go from Tank Abbott to a Scott Disick in five milliseconds.
Axe and Philips Norelco have done all they can to set you up for the most sexually progressive night of your life. But getting laid is your job – and we’re rooting for you.
Are you a straight-up “Beardsman?” Think you can hang with the Jack Passion’s of the beard-iverse? Well let me hip you to a facial hair PED that is employed on the court of the game called “Real Life.”
The oils come in a flask to look super #BA when you’re applying product in public. Can You Handlebar is made for the man (generally, but the lady cashier at the “Save-U-Less” with the wicked chin-scratch is welcome, too) who maintains a one-of-a-kind look, whether he’s sporting a Tom Selleck, Wyatt Earp, or Kimbo Slice. Like this dude:
Can You Handlebar oil is made from Vitamin E, coconut oil, local bees wax (local to Michigan), and comes in three rugged scents–Wisdom, Initiative, and Temperance. All products are made by hand.

The Old Spice Robot burst onto the scene by expounding on the benefits of using Old Spice deodorant, body wash and shampoo together in the Old Spice “Smell Like a Man from Head to Toes” campaign.
Yesterday, Old Spice launched a brand new weekly sports internet talk show called “4th and Touchdown,” in which the Old Spice robot discusses an array of topics with some of the NFL’s most dynamic stars.
The online series launched yesterday with New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees in the chair opposite the Robot, answering some truly absurd and amazing questions only a mandroid could love.
Over the next four weeks, Old Spice will debut a new “4th and Touchdown” every Monday at 12pm ET on the brand’s YouTube and Facebook pages, where NFL fans can watch the Old Spice robot (attempt to) interview a different NFL player each week, including: Drew Brees (QB, New Orleans Saints), Earl Thomas (Safety, Seattle Seahawks), A.J. Green (WR, Cincinnati Bengals), and Jamaal Charles (RB, Kansas City Chiefs)
Here is a preview of what to expect:
