Moustache Heaven vs. Moustache Hell

Movemeber officially ended today. To celebrate, UK based hairdresser Barrie Stephen have created an infographic about Moustache Heaven and Moustache Hell, which includes facts about why moustaches can be completely awesome, or a bit naff.

Did you know a bad moustache will make you up to 75% less attractive? Or that a man with a moustache will touch his moustache an average of 780 times a day?

Shave the Date: Movember 1st Kicks Off Tomorrow


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 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.

What Is Movember?


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 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.

3. Donate.

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. Challenges Boston Red Sox To Tweak Their Beards for “Movember”

Boston-Red-Sox-Philip-Masiello, the burn-free razor company, today challenges the World Series champion Boston Red Sox players to help stand up to cancer and show their support by turning playoff beards into Movember mustaches for the entire month of November.

Movember is a month-long event that raises awareness for testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and mental health issues impacting men. Men around the world are challenged to grow a mustache and show their solidarity for this important cause.

“Let’s talk balls – testicles not baseballs”, said Philip Masiello, President of and a die-hard Yankees fan. “The Boston Red Sox showed they had the balls to win the World Series. Now, I challenge this Red Sox team to show they have the balls to raise awareness for cancer. If 10 players accept my challenge, I will personally drive razors up to Boston and help them shave their beards into mustaches on Monday. If they keep their mustaches through the month of November, will make a donation to the Movember charity in their names.”

Those that have survived prostate or testicular cancer are encouraged to share their stories at’s Facebook Page to help raise awareness and encourage others to get checked. In addition, challenges other businesses to get involved by rallying together to grow mustaches, encourage check-ups for early detection and donate to the Movember cause.

Says Masiello, “I encourage all men to get an exam, go to a clinic, see their doctor, do a self-exam—do whatever it takes to stay healthy and remove the stigma associated with testicular and prostate cancer!”
