It is the very final week of Movember and whodathunk that I’d have made it this far? Not me, that’s for sure! I had visions of me finding my Mo so utterly monstrous and/or frustrating that I would have taken a pair of scissors to it in a fit of a rage by now. But the truth is that the month of Movember has been relatively easy and dare I say rather fun indeed.
On Thursday last week I took a trip up to London to the Official Movember Barbers for a free Mo trim. This was my first true barbershop encounter (I wore Petit Fracas btw, an entirely un-barbershoppy fragrance for what it’s worth) and it was rather enjoyable; not only was it quite relaxing but the barbers hired by Movember were pretty damn handsome too. So yes, I would recommend a true old-fashioned barbershop shave, the results of which you can view below the jump…
It is day 19 and week three of the month of Movember and Mo growing is Mo-st definitely in full swing. I am constantly surprised by how surprisingly decent it looks. I expected it to look entirely laughable but I am getting lots of comments from people who know me that think that it looks suits me and that, here’s the kicker, I should think about keeping it. Now that is something I am not sure about….
Although the Mo is looking good I must admit that it is getting to the point where it is starting to feel weird. I guess I just cannot get used to having some growth on my top lip! The good news is that I will be paying a visit to the Official Movember Barbershop on Thursday to have a bit of a Mo trim and tidy-up. Here’s hoping that the professionals will be able to style it up a bit.
So it’s day 11 of Movember and Week 2 of Moustache Mondays which means it is time for my weekly Mo update! That’s right, you may be sick to the back teeth of me banging on about Movember, but as promised I am here to keep you up to date with all that relates to my facial hair, and it seems that we’ve had quite a bit of progress since week 1….
As you can see by the picture above, which was taken yesterday on day 10, the Mo is in full fuzz mode. I have to admit that it really doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would, although since having my hair did I do look a tad Hitler-esque without my glasses on, but on the whole I am growing rather attached to it.
Gadzooks that is some serious growth! (Disclaimer: This image may have been photoshopped…)
Today is the first of my Moustache Mondays, a series of weekly posts in which I shall keep you abreast of my Mo growing escapades in aid of raising money (and awareness) for men’s health charity Movember. So, how has it all gone so far? Would my facial-hair growing skills shame a Sasquatch? Short answer: no.
It’s day 5, and no, it hasn’t grown asquickly as the above picture will lead you to believe! Instead that is a rather good representation of what I would look like should I decide to rock the Handlebar (or Connoisseur) style of Mo. Pretty nifty, huh? I shall attempt to mock up a pic with the Trucker style Mo, as that appeared to be the most popular in this week’s Saturday Poll.
