I’ve been challenged to partake in the phenomenon known as International Mustache Month. So I’ve shaved all facial hair off and now I’m feeling like a hairless cat.
We’ll see how this works out. I’ve never grown a full beard, but I’ve had some sort of facial hair since 1997. At first I just had a goatee with no mustache, but in about 2003 I filled in the mustache, and that’s been a prominent part of my face since then. I didn’t think to take a before photo, but I do have a fairly recent photo of me with facial hair for a comparison.
The idea is simple: grow your beard throughout February, then shave back to a glorious mustache for a gala beer party at the end of the month.
On this site, we will chronicle the saga of the hairiest month, detail the ever-important rules, and provide a home for temporarily mustachioed men to unite.
Let the excitement commence.
