When Your Mo Just Grows On You

It's Movember, and the bearder, the better! There may come a time when a mo just grows on you, and here's why it'll be so much more than a whole lotta hair.



The Movember Foundation

In 2003, Melbourne mates on a mission, Travis Garden and Luke Slattery, birthed the idea of 'Movember' over a beer. They began with just '30 Mo Bros', showing off their moustaches in a bid to promote men's health and raise awareness for prostate cancer.

"Depression is a high risk factor for suicide and, in Australia, there are approximately 2,500 suicides each year. 75 per cent are by men – with an average of 6 men taking their lives every single day. Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 54, significantly exceeding the national road toll." - Beyondblue

Today, The Movember Foundation continues to make history with over 5 million 'Mo Bros and Mo Sistas', gaining global attention with currently 21 participating countries worldwide, and has raised over AUD $770 million for more than 1000 men's health programs. And this journey is just the beginning.

With The Movember Foundation's primary goal "to stop men dying too young", this proves one undying cause worth every bromance. Donate today, or find mo-spiration.


A True Love Story

The longer the growth, the deeper the attachment. And Clarendon's favourite barbershop, Edward Scissorhands, which lies in the heart of Clarendon Street, South Melbourne, understands the love between a man and his beard. A well-groomed beard can make all the difference between shabby and suave, and their highly experienced team of 3rd and 4th-gen barbers are prepared for your sharpest look yet. They boast a specialty in men's styling with unrivalled fades and precise cutting techniques.

Any beardsuation requires careful handling, and with these professionals, you know you're in good hands....good scissorhands.


A Status Symbol

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling, need we say more? In a hairy class of its own, the beard has become a status symbol. Suave, hairy and sexy, whether you opt for a moustache, sideburns, a full beard or just a little extra something, don't be afraid to grow for show!

Movember may be drawing to a close, but your donation has no end date. You can donate to the 'Most urgent Movember cause', 'Prostate Cancer', 'Testicular Cancer' or 'Mental health and suicide prevention' at any time throughout the year.

And if you're looking to show your mo a little TLC, Edward Scissorhands Barbershop open 7 days a week, where the barbers know how to handle the beardsuation.

Happy Movember!
