What is No Shave November? It is the time among young men whereby there is an unwritten (but constantly spoken) rule that they shall not prune their facial hair for the entire month of November. This tradition is steeped in testosterone and blighted with the constant threat that the women in the lives of the participants may begin to participate as well. No Shave November’s purpose is intended to promote prostate cancer awareness. Movember is a slightly older variation of No Shave November that encourages the growth of a moustache for the month of November.
Some men can wear this look well, cultivating a healthy, even growth of beard. Some cannot, managing only scraggly, patchy growth. For many, it is an opportunity to experiment with different looks, pruning the facial topiary into such classic constructs such as the handlebar moustache or the chevron, made popular Magnum - Tom Selleck. For those among you gentlemen who find yourselves unable to grow a respectable amount
of facial hair, PartyCheap may be able to help you. Wear this Brown Beard Costume Accessory
to cover your shame. Or you can wear one of the Printed Villain Moustaches
to give your facial hair something for which to aspire. Find the moustache that suits you.

Many people don’t understand the purpose of No Shave November or Movember and think it is only an excuse for young men to be silly. While enjoying the festivities, please remember to educate friends and family about the risk of prostate cancer. Education about risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment is important in protecting men’s health. Prostate cancer does not typically come with many early warning signs, so regular examinations are vital for early detection. Be sure to tell the men in your life about the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer and encourage regular screenings. Click here
