Movember 2008

During last November I’ve been involved in Movember, a charity to raise money for prostate cancer research. The idea is to grow a moustache during November with a wet shave on the 1st and a continuous trimming  until the 30th. I’ve been part of an hairy team of work mates and the whole experience as been very funny and charity-efficient as we raised more than one thousand pounds at the end.

At the beggining of this project I decided to do a daily shot of my growing mo’ for fun and, as I promised to my colleagues, here it is. I thought it will be fun to watch but it looks a bit creepy at the end (according to my beloved too). Anyway I haven’t take a shot of myself every day during a month for nothing, so I have to publish it!

As strange as it can sounds I actually enjoyed and get used to this unexpected new face item. Since the end of the 70-80s the moustache became terribly cheesy and young people wearing a mo’ became really rare as far as I know. Weirdly I always feel that some people does look like they have a face to have a mo’ (others don’t) and it will be disturbing to see them without it.

All I want to say is that Movember experience change my vision of the moustache and I currently still have it and love it! As she has to deal with it (but she loves it!), Aurore offered me a traditional barber session at Geo F Trumper. It’s been a very relaxing and unique experience and I now have a proper mo’ style (forget about style if you watch the video)!
