Movember

For my Halloween costume I wore a mustache. Everyone was making the comment that I was just getting a head start on Movember (growing a mustache during the month of November to raise awareness/money for prostate/testicular cancer). So I thought, what the heck. I've never tried growing a mustache. At work a co-worker was also doing it and convinced me to join their group. Hey now instead of just growing a mustache I was doing it for a cause. People would donate to our group on the website so it showed that I was helping but in reality I wasn't soliciting anyone. (Our group did do a little over £1000 in donations though.)
At the end of the month, the general consensus was I looked like a porn star or Freddie Mercury, neither were images I really wanted to portray. Not to mention the scratchy feeling, feeling the hairs touching, or the extra water every time I used a drinking fountain. So I don't think I'll be repeating the process.
But, before shaving it off I couldn't help but try different styles. I first started by trying to wax it using hair wax. Bad idea, it made my eyes water and burned every time I shaved off a little more no matter how much I thought I washed it out of the whiskers. I also tried "Charlie Chaplin" and "Godwin's law" styles. Yep clean shaven looks best on me.
