How to Style Movember Moustaches

Movember is officially in full swing and we're sure you will have spotted quite a few entertaining upper-lip growth in the past fortnight! With whole month of November being rechristened Movember is an excellent and fun way to increase the profile of men's health issues and raise money for a worthy cause. 
Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health. 
In October, Mo Bros sign up at Movember.com, and on the 1st of Movember, with a clean-shaven face, start their Mo growing journey. 
Then for the entire month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for 30 days. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever they go.
Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts. 
Movember’s not just for men. The women of Movember, are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Mo Sistas also get involved by signing up at Movember.com, and participate by raising funds and awareness themselves. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo. 
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey by throwing their own MOVEMBER PARTIES or attending one of the official GALA PARTÉS held around the world.

So here are Flingers we want to celebrate the effort you guy are putting into this great cause and give you some inspiration for ways to style your newly grown facial feature!

There is the quintessential English Gentleman Moustache for the man who enjoys reminiscing about the strength of the British military during the hight of the British Empire. Sure to require a little bit of wax and patience to get the perfect up-turned whiskers.


Next up, we would like to suggest the Pencil Moustache. This one will surely need quite a bit of trimming and work to maintain the precision of this particular style. Known informally as the 'Spiv' moustache, it has long been associated with suspicious characters and smartly dressed petty criminals of the past. 

Our third option is the Chevron Moustache. This style will certainly keep your top lip warm as the cold weather draws in this month but be prepared to find pieces of food nestled in there on the odd occasion! Long associated with Joseph Stalin, it is also known as the Porn Star Tache. So if you are looking to channel Ron Jeremy this Movemeber, then this might by the one for you....

If you are willing to commit a lot of care and attention to your Movember inspired moustache then we think the Imperial is the one you should try! Small an bushy but with great care taken to style the ends into the perfect curls. This one is particularly tricky as it requires a lot of patience and a keen eye to ensure that it is symmetrical as no one likes a wonky tache! 

But if you are someone who doesn't have the time to commit to the preening and styling of your moustache this Movember, then the Horseshoe Moustache is your best bet. Requiring minimal effort, the Horseshoe tache extends beyond of the mouth and growth continues downwards to the edge of the jawline. Perhaps the most drastic style, would you consider the Horseshoe? 

If you Mo-Sisters are feeling left out or want to show your support for someone who is taking on the Movember challenge, chose your ideal moustache style and fake it with a stick on option! 

What is your favourite Movember moustache style?
