While men around the country, including our own Matt, Al, Carson, and Willie, begin No-Shave November while others join the Movember mustache movement, facial-hair challenged women — and men — can find other ways to join the hairy hoopla sweeping the country. Conceived to literally to change the face of men’s health, this month of Movember raises awareness, sparks conversation and increases fund-raising for issues like prostate and testicular cancer, while No-Shave November grows cancer awareness by embracing our hair — mustaches, beards, and even leg hair — which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.
If you can’t sprout a stylin’ stache, add these decor items to your home to show your support for men’s health causes — and maybe even satisfy your inner hipster in the process.
