Every November, beards grow longer as the days grow shorter. No Shave November, also known as Movember (the “M” is for “mustache”), is a show of support and a way to raise awareness about men’s health issues. Movember is an annual phenomenon that can still be considered a trend. Some people partake in the seasonal activity while others do not.
In an effort to raise awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health, men all around the world grow out their mustaches and facial hair. The connection to cancer awareness is that patients often lose hair during cancer treatment and by embracing facial hair, participants in Movember are displaying an outward show of support.
