15 Ways to Rock a Memorable Movember Mustache (PHOTOS)

Movember Mustache Ideas

If you've got it, flaunt it

And you thought November was famous for roasted turkeys and dark afternoons. Ha.

In recent years, November and its accompanying highlights have been hijacked for a cause even more worthy than stuffing and lighter mornings: Movember.

It’s now a month all about shining the spotlight on men’s health — prostate and testicular cancer in particular. Men everywhere show they’re all in by growing a mustache in honor of Movember, and organizations such as Movember United States, which supports prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

There are some mustache-growing rules in Movember, but in the end, it’s the participation and awareness raised that mean the most.

That being said, now that the month is in full swing, some men might be thinking about creatively grooming their ‘staches (you know, now that there’s something to groom).

Here are 15 ways to rock a Movember mustache in high style:


  • At least there’s still hair somewhere 1 of 15
    At least there's still hair somewhere
    Go ahead — emotionally replace the missing hair on your head with some under your nose.
    Because it's for a good cause, we'll totally pretend to be confused and distracted.
  • Now’s the time to channel your inner Bob Ross 2 of 15

    And you don't even need to break out the sponges.
  • Inspector Poirot, I presume? 3 of 15

    Mon estomac! This is a good look!
  • The 1-2 Punch 4 of 15
    The 1-2 Punch
    You can't go wrong with the mustache that goes on and on.
    It's like the infinity pool of mustaches.
  • And a 3-4 to boot 5 of 15
    And a 3-4 to boot
    The mustache/side burn special is good in Movember only (even if it's technically against the rules).
    Get it while it's hot!
  • But even if you don’t got it . . . 6 of 15
    But even if you don't got it . . .
    . . . you can still flaunt it.
  • Because it’s all about attitude 7 of 15
    Because it's all about attitude
    Some men have it (like this little one), others just don't.
  • And even those without a lot of facial hair can still make a big, hairy splash 8 of 15
    And even those without a lot of facial hair can still make a big, hairy splash
    Or at least a big, if not hairy, splash.
  • Others more than make up for it, anyway 9 of 15
    Others more than make up for it, anyway
    Mustache + smile = Macho Movember Man.
    And if it doesn't work out, you can always shave it off soon.
  • But wait! There’s no reason to shave come December! 10 of 15
    But wait! There's no reason to shave come December!
    There's more you can do with that mustache!
  • Some men look dignified with facial hair 11 of 15
    Some men look dignified with facial hair
    As if they've achieved some sort of high rank in the military, even if they haven't enlisted.
  • Old Saint Nick does it his way 12 of 15

    Of course he's had some time to get it right.
  • The Rip Van Winkle of Mustaches 13 of 15
    The Rip Van Winkle of Mustaches
    It'll take longer than just Movember to grow this kind of facial hair.
  • Where does the moustache end and the beard begin? 14 of 15
    Where does the moustache end and the beard begin?
    It's a question for the ages.
  • But big kisses to you even if you shave it on Dec. 1 15 of 15
    But big kisses to you even if you shave it on Dec. 1
    Because you supported a cause that matters.
