November is widely recognized as the month when men join in facial-haired camaraderie — all in an effort to raise awareness and funds to promote men’s health initiatives. “Movember” encourages guys to beard up in November and get their friends and family to donate to their facial hair growing efforts.
Guys looking to participate in Grow & Give can visit zerocancer.org/grow; and to get the grooming tools that will keep you looking sharp, visit WahlHomeProducts.com.
“Harnessing the power of facial hair is what Wahl is all about, so we’re proud to once again work with ZERO and motivate guys to beard up and do good this November,” said Steven Yde, division vice president for Wahl. “As a sponsor, Wahl is sweetening the pot by donating facial hair trimmers to the top Grow & Give fundraisers.”
Whether you’re a bare-faced mortal man discovering the ruggedly handsome facial hair lifestyle for the first time, or an old pro looking for a refresh, Wahl is also offering the following tips for effective, efficient, and long-lasting facial hair attractiveness:
Make it your wingman. As your facial hair grows, it will get you noticed; so make the most of your new friend, it’s there to make you look good. The first step is to pick a style that’s right for you. Facial hair should be worn to balance certain face shapes and features, but also match your personality.
Leash the beast. Facial hair can be like a wild animal and must be tamed accordingly. You can grow it out, while still keeping it clean with regular trims. When considering a trimmer, be sure to purchase one that has power, precision, and a long run-time.
The party’s over when you say it is. Once November ends, fight the urge to remove your well-earned facial fur. You’re now a walking talking billboard for Prostate Cancer Awareness, and you can help spread the word year round.
“We want all men to know their risk for prostate cancer. The Grow & Give campaign advances that mission, while also providing support for patients currently facing the disease,” says Jamie Bearse, President of ZERO. “We lose a man to prostate cancer every 20 minutes – that’s more than 2,000 men in November alone. The least we can do is grow a beard or mustache.”
Guys looking to participate in Grow & Give can start cultivating their facial hair any day in November and continue all month long. To get involved, visit zerocancer.org/grow, and socialize your scruff with #growandgive.
