What is Movember..?

It amazes us here at BARBinc that many barbers and industry people still do not know what “Movember” is…

(If you’re among them, then don’t worry… We won’t tell 😉

Movember is an international movement to raise awareness and research funds for prostate and testicular cancer – a touchy subject for many men. Initiated in 2003, the Movember Foundation asks men all over the world to register at and take four simple actions:

  1. Start clean-shaven on the 1st of November
  2. Grow a moustache during the entire month
  3. Ask friends and family to support the moustache-growing process, and
  4. Raise funds (and awareness) whenever the opportunity arises

Movember is already an established tradition among international barbers (especially in Australia) and more recently, West Coast barbers (most noticably, The Barber Collective in California) have banded together to promote the cause.

We at BARBinc will be showcasing events and videos throughout the month so be sure to tune in and get your ‘stache ready…!
