Get your 'stache on - Movember arrives in the Middle East
November 4, 2014
For as long as we care to remember, the 11th month of the year was known as November. But since 2003, that name has changed. A small, aesthetic alteration in its spelling, but a huge, philanthropic movement in what it stands for.
The idea behind Movember is to encourage men to grow their moustaches for the entire month, and by doing so sparking conversation to raise awareness of men affected by prostate and testicular cancer.
Since the movement began, the Movember Foundation has raised $560 million and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. Not bad work for a campaign that in any of the other 11 months of the year would see participating gentleman viewed as lazy and unkempt.

We’re pleased to say the Movember movement has reached the Middle East, with several local businesses growing out their Mos in support. One in particular is 1847 - EDGAR
's favourite male grooming salon - who along with Iris Dubai has combined art, photography and some of Dubai's trendiest men to raise awareness.
The below photos will be part of an exhibition at Iris Dubai on November 11. Go on, grow that mo.
