Movember (the month formerly known as November) is upon us, and so the opportunity for men all over the land to demonstrate their ability to grow facial hair. The aim is to raise money for charities for prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Several barber shops across the capital are getting involved. Murdock is introducing their follicle inspiration, Joe & Co are offering discounted wet shaves and free trims for anybody taking part and the Pall Mall Barbers are holding a comedy gala night at the end of the month. Movember madness culminates on November 25 with the ‘Gale Partee’ at Battersea Evolution where sought-after titles will be awarded including Team Mo, Miss Movember, and of course, the ultimate yearly accolade – Man of Movember 2011.
