Movember Motivation: ASU’s epic facial hair for the manliest month

0

November is time of turkey, football and mustaches. For most, November is yet another excuse to not shave, but what people aren’t aware of is November celebrates men’s health month. “Movember,” as it’s called, specifically targets prostate and testicular cancer initiatives, according to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Men grow a beard/mustache and women and family can donate in support. Here are some epic lip kittens and face sweaters from around Tempe, even though December has spoiled the fun.

“I grow my beard ‘cause I can, and it’s cool. In high school I wasn’t allowed to grow any facial hair, and I would anyway, I always said I had a rash on my face and no one questioned it. Beards are more acceptable now, but my dad still says to ‘Shave that sh*t! You look like an artist!’ He is a business man and doesn’t like it, but I think it’s cool.”

“I actually have my beard year-round. It fits my personality. But I like being affiliated with Movember, [since]it’s for men’s health and it’s for a good cause. Being affiliated with it makes me look like a better person.”\

“I’ve been growing it for four months. I literally woke up one morning during the summer and was like ‘I’m gonna do this.’ It got longer and I had to use hair wax to form it correctly. Every time I look in the mirror I can’t help but laugh. I wanted to keep it for Movember. My grandparents reaction was the best. They just looked at me and said ‘What is that on your face?’”

“I like my beard. I feel more confident. Without it I feel more like a child. I like the beard and the style of it.”

“It’s really just easier. I don’t have to shave—I just trim it, ignore it, wait a while, and wake up one day and it’s a beard! Nothing really special about it, but I’m told it’s breathtaking.”

“I got bored one day and decided to quit shaving. I really think I just pre-gamed Movember. My dad really likes it—he used to have one and looked like Jesus—so he is a pretty big supporter.”

“I didn’t really plan to grow it out for Movember, but my ex didn’t really like the facial hair, so when we broke up I kinda grew it out in celebration. I also just don’t want to have to go out and buy razors.”

“I have it just because I can. I can finally grow a mustache so I figured ‘Ehh, alright. I might as well.’”

“I definitely did it for Movember! That, and I don’t have enough money to purchase razors. ASU should think about giving out free razors for students! It was November, so I figured ‘Why not?’ and it’s very in right now. I don’t look like I have as much of a baby face.”
