Naked upper lips across the world will be tingling in anticipation of the official sanction for facial fur to roam free for the month of November.
Yes folks, Movember is soon to be upon us, a whole 30 days of facial hair gone wild.
Movember. Even saying it makes us feel all manly. Like we’re gonna spend the day cutting down trees, building a log cabin with our bare hands and then maybe hanging out with Burt Reynolds.
Having said that, it’s not an exclusively male event. 'Mo Sistas' are encouraged to take part, whether it’s with a stick-on or via the brave decision to bin the Jolen.
Apart from looking like 70s porn extras, Mo Bros and Sistas are also using their hairy visages to raise awareness and funds for men’s health – specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
And all you have to do is stop shaving. It’s that simple. There’s no dressing as a giant banana and running from John O’Groats to Land’s End. No sitting in a bathtub of beans. And definitely no head shearing.

So, all you have to do is hang up your razor, bin the Jolen or wax and let that baby grow.
At the Huffington Post UK we like to practise what we preach so we’re joining in too – you can find out who will be sporting a Mo and sponsor us here.
If you’re taking part in this noble cause, we’d like to see how you’re getting on – send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, #movember
