Fan-tash-tic - it's Movember!

Right now, all around the world, men are growing their Mo’s for the legendary month of Movember. Not only does this give men a legitimate excuse to look like Magnum PI, Hulk Hogan or Burt Reynolds but also a chance to support some great charities as well. Here at a November moustache equals FREE lottery tickets. Find out more!

Movember is the global charity movement encouraging men to grow moustaches for the month of November, raising awareness and funds to benefit men's health with a focus on prostate cancer. The goal of Movember is to "change the face" of men's health by encouraging men to get involved.

In 2009 F1 World Champion Jenson Button supported Movember by showing off his blond moustache at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, returning the presence of the moustache on the F1 podium by finishing 3rd, the first since the 1994 Australian Grand Prix.

British Airways has also come out in support of Movember by adorning one of it's Airbus A329 aircraft with a giant moustache. They hope to raise around £80,000 for the Prostate Cancer Charity this month.

A spokesman for the airline said it considered several styles of moustache including the pencil (Errol Flynn), the handlebar (gunslinger Wyatt Earp) and the horseshoe (Hulk Hogan) – but opted for the very stylish “connoisseur”.



Knowledge is Power – Moustache is King

Many people use facial hair to distinguish themselves from the crowd. The following list shows those that have done so quite successfully.

Salvador Dalí
The Spanish surrealist adopted his trademark waxed, pointy ’tache in his 20’s in tribute to one of his major influences, 17th-century master Diego Velázquez. Dalí wrote: “Since I don’t smoke, I grew a moustache – it’s better for the health. However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which were carefully placed several moustaches. I offered them politely to my friends: ‘Moustache? Moustache? Moustache?’

Freddie Mercury
Rock band Queen boasted two trademark pieces of tonsorial topiary: guitarist Brian May’s massive poodle mane and frontman Freddie Mercury’s chevron moustache, first grown in 1980.

Ned Flanders - The Simpsons
Homer Simpson’s next-diddly-door neighbourino beat off Snidely Whiplash and Astertix to make our list. The Flanders family refer to Ned’s moustache by nicknames including Nose Neighbour, Mr Tickles, the Soup Strainer and Dr Fuzzenstein. He once shaved it off after Homer implied that people were mocking it, and on another occasion had it pulled off with a vacuum cleaner by late wife Maude.
