"Movember" moustache mania

Hirsute gentlemen the world over took part in a follicular challenge during the month of November: Start the month freshly-shaven, and see how wicked of a 'stache you can grow over the next 30 days. Dubbed "Movember" (a portmanteau of moustache and November), the movement aims to raise awareness of men's health issues. Naturally, iReporters got in on the action.



Mark Vincze lost an aunt to lung cancer recently, and said the Movember project "seemed like something I could do to raise money for cancer awareness." Despite his solid impersonation of Tom Selleck, he couldn't wait to shave it off after his thirty days were up, since he thought his moustache looked "kind of creepy."



A large number of moustache-aspirants in Chad Grossman's office took part in this year's Movember en masse. "The good thing about Movember is that it raises awareness about men's health issues, and allows us to make a difference in the community as well," he said. Overall, his office raised more than $2,500!


Do you have any before and after photos of your Movember achievements? Or do you just want to share your well-honed arsenal of facial hair-maintenance tips? Either way, join in on the fun with iReport!

I bought a mustache and put it in my profile pictures. I liked the picture so much, I love it. I'll do it again next year too!
