Halloween is almost here and with it, the end of October. Moving into November, many of our stylists and customers participate in Movember. What is Movember you might ask? Well, let’s explore this modern movement.
Movember is an annual event aimed at raising awareness around men’s health issues. Participants grow mustaches throughout the entire month of November to bring attention to conditions such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and suicide. The purpose of the mustache is to literally “change the face of men’s health.”
Movember is a cause that raises funds through donations, fun runs and other types of activities tied to participating charities that promote early cancer detection, diagnoses, and effective treatments. It is also a movement that seeks to inspire participants to adopt healthier lifestyle choices.
Originally coined back in 1999 by a group of Australian men based in Adelaide, it has now grown into an international event. Many salons, nonprofits, and businesses participate.
If you want to get into Movember this year, it’s simple. A few clicks on the Google can lead you to participant groups where you can sign up, participate, and drive donations for a cause.
When it comes to health, men are more reticent to talk about it or take preventative measures to ensure their own health. At Mens Salon Spa, we care deeply about our community and invite you to join in on this excellent cause. Plus, it’s a great way to try out that mustache you’ve always wanted.
