Ginger, blonde, dark or subtle, every Movember moustache is a hairy ribbon in the fight for men’s health. Here are a few grooming tips to kick off your second week of Movember.
How to grow a Mo
1. As the first follicles break through the surface of your upper lip, choose the type of moustache that will grace your face by reviewing the inspirational Movember Style Guide. If you leave your choice too late some styles might be out of the question.
2. Be brave. The first few days, even weeks, can be uncomfortable and a little awkward as your facial fuzz grows and your Mo takes shape.
3. Ignore the itching. Remind yourself that men have endured worse in the past; you can stand a little face tickle.
4.Get the tools. Shape your moustache using proper grooming techniques. A great Mo comes down to grooming.Now is the time to invest in the right tools for the job. A man committed to moustachery should own the following: barber scissors, a fine-toothed comb, a large mirror, a trusty razor, a steady hand and a determined mind.
5. Nurture it and keep it clean. Look after your Mo, and your Mo will look after you.
Make the most of what you’ve got
You might not be seeing too much progress yet, but it’s early days. For now, show off what you’ve got. Foam up your face and run a sharp razor along everything but the Mo, to make it stand out.
