Movember And No Shave November 2016!
Movember and No Shave November 2016 are here and this time it is bigger and better than ever before! For all those men following the beard and mustache trend, here is your calling! Not just men but, women too are now following this trend!
What is Movember?
Movember is a movement started in Australia in the year 1999 but, has only recently caught the eyes of the people around the globe. It is a notion started to raise awareness about prostate and testicular cancer faced by men around the world. In addition to this, it also raises awareness on mental health issues that men face like depression and anxiety!
Rules of Movember
Movember has a certain set of rules to be followed, in order for you to actually be a part of the movement.
- First of all, on the night of Halloween (October 31st), one must shave their face completely (except eyebrows. Duh!). This includes beard, mustache and sideburns.
- You are not allowed to grow a beard during this month under any circumstances! Zero facial hair under the lip. And no handlebars!
Now you might be wondering why there are ‘rules’ to such a movement. Every year one special man is crowned ‘The International Man of Movember’. Trust me this is an honor of the highest order!

What is No Shave November?
First of all, much like Movember, No Shave November also aims at raising awareness about all types of cancer. But, unlike Movember, No Shave November has zero rules and regulations, and is practiced by even girls around the world.
Most of all, whether you are growing out your beard and mustache, or skipping waxing and shaving for a month, be certain that you are doing it for the right reasons!
Furthermore, the idea of not shaving for a whole month is to save your expenditures at the hair salon and beauty parlor, and instead donate it towards research on cancer, spreading awareness and saving lives of those cancer patients who can’t afford to pay for their own medication.
