Mustache Inspirations For ‘Movember’
To kick off this month, and help you decide the new shape of your (or your man’s) facial hair, we have cumulated some of the most inspiring mustaches found in art on The Bazaar.
Why leave a mustache? To support the ‘mo’vement, of course; it’s also a chance for you to channel that inner hipster, or just be lazy and leave out the daily shaving.
In some cultures, mustaches are also associated with power.
National Beard and Moustache Championships is also said to take place on Sunday, 11 November 2012.
Remember, don’t touch that razor! For the whole month…
