Yep, it's that time of year again, folks. It's time to put those razors down and man up for Facial Hair Season, all in aid of a great cause, of course.
The lead up to Christmas is a big time in the male grooming calender, with numerous events and sponsorhips working together with the public to raise funds for men's charity and research. Here, we bring you the complete guide to Facial Hair Season, so get involved and start raising some cash for some worthy causes...
October - Shave Season
Ok, so we understand that not every man has been blessed with the genetics to grow a full on beard, but Facial Hair Season isn't just about the fuzz. If you're partial to a bit of wet shaving, then get involved in Shave Season and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes...
November - No Shave November
With a $30 donation, good-hearted, clean-shaven individuals can register to enter the challenge. It begins with a date-stamped "before" picture posted on the event Facebook page and ends with a wild and wooly "after" shot. At the annual Beard Bash in Nashville, prizes are awarded and a No Shave November is crowned. All proceeds go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising £402 million and funding over 1,000 programmes focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
December - Decembeard
Campaigning during the month of November is known as 'Movember' where men grow moustaches to raise awareness for prostate cancer; 'Tashes for Testicles'. Beards for Bowels helps raise awareness for bowel cancer by growing beards all year round but mainly campaigning each December... 'Decembeard'.
