Now that we have reached the end of October, there is one event that everybody is talking about - Movember! Movember is an incredible charity which raises awareness regarding men’s health, covering a variety of significant topics. There are a number of ways that all can take part in Movember, from runs to workplace challenges, and of course the most common way of growing a moustache. If you decide to go down the moustache route, here at Hairdressing Supplies we have a few tips and tricks to get you groomed and ready for Movember!
Now, before we go onto the products to keep your moustache looking on top form during Movember, there are a few rules that we must cover first:
First of all, it’s not too late to sign up - so make sure you do this by clicking here. However, you must start by the November 1st with a completely clean shaven face, so be quick!
The second rule is that you must grow and groom your moustache for the whole of November.
Cheating is forbidden and this includes: beards and fake moustaches!
The only rule left to cover is to make sure you raise awareness - whether you do this by shouting about Movember on social media or you add stickers in to your car window, just tell everybody!
Growing Your Moustache
So, first of all, in the early weeks of Movember you need to make sure you do all that you can to encourage faster hair growth. The most obvious and simplest way is to just leave your hair alone. As you will know, as your hair starts to grow you may feel some itching. Obviously this is completely normal and the longer your facial hair gets, the softer and less irritating it will become.
Also, as your hair gets longer, it is important to keep combing it in the direction that you want your moustache to grow. By training your hair to grow a certain way, this will help to ensure that you will receive the style and look that you want.
On the other hand, having a regular skincare routine in place is just as important! We recommend exfoliating your face once a week to help unblock your pores. Our BarberPro Foaming Cleansing Mask is the perfect product for this! This face mask will not only help to make your skin look super healthy and fresh, it will also unblock your pores - encouraging hair growth too.
Styling Your Moustache
Okay, so you’ve grown your moustache - firstly, well done you! However, the true difficulty has now arrived. Facial hair is no different from your head hair, you always want to make sure it is looking its best! So how exactly can you do that? Luckily, there is an abundance of products on the market right now which are designed purely just your facial hair!
However, the product that we recommend to keep your moustache looking its best is the Vines Vintage Moustache Wax. This moustache wax is formulated with beeswax - giving you ultimate hold and polished styling, meaning your moustache will always be looking on top form.
After Movember ends you may decide that you want to keep your moustache, if so, we recommend visiting your preferred barber shop on a regular basis. Even though it can sometimes seem a little counterproductive going to the barbers to trim your facial hair (especially if you like it long), it is actually super important! Believe it or not but your facial hair can have split ends too! This is why visiting your barber shop regularly will help to get rid of those blasted hairs, and will leave you with a more clean and tidy looking tache.
However, most importantly, whether you decide to get rid of your moustache or keep it going - give yourself a huge pat on the back! You have completed Movember and most importantly, raised money and awareness towards such an incredible and important cause!
So… well done you!
