Summer's officially over, and as autumn settles in, men everywhere are getting ready to embrace everything that's awesome about No-Shave November. Naturally, the most obvious way to prep for this month-long holiday is to toss out the razors and let your facial hair grow wild. At The Vintage Grooming Co., we prefer to see the second-to-last page on the calendar as something more: an opportunity to present an artful creation by way of your face.
To help you prepare for this pre-winter holiday, here's what you need to know:
Simply put, No-Shave November is, "A Unique Way to Grow Cancer Awareness", according to the host non-profit's tagline. The concept is easy: you stop shaving, the organization receives the cash you would have otherwise spent on razors and grooming products. The cease and desist on shaving pays homage to the hair loss cancer patients endure when they're undergoing treatment.
While you let your beard or mustache grow wild and free, you're simultaneously supporting a great cause and boosting awareness of important issues. In other words, it's just another day where you're being your awesome self -- with added benefits such as life-saving donations and funding for preventative education.
There are a few reasons you'll want to stock your bathroom shelves early.
