5 Guys Who Totally Rocked No-Shave November [PICTURES]
No-Shave November (also called “Movember”) is coming to an end, and it’s time we salute our furry-faced male companions.
During each November, men forgo shaving to raise awareness for men’s health issues — prostate and testicular cancer, mostly, according to Movember’s official website.They start off the month clean shaven and let their facial hair grow to magnificent lengths.
Many women despise this month, but I think we need to recognize how great manly ‘staches are and how phenomenal they look when the right men rock them.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is workin’ the ‘stache. My Twitter feed exploded during Monday Night Football this week — fans were irate about the man’s hairy upper lip. But I think he deserves to be saluted for doing the cause justice.
Nick Offerman (you know him as Ron Swanson from ‘Parks and Recreation’) epitomizes the manliest of men. He doesn’t limit his facial hair to one month — he lets his face stay brawny and rugged all year.
Ryan Gosling, whether clean shaven or scruffy, makes his living stealing the hearts of women everywhere. You know he only got more attractive when he let himself go after Allie left — that scruff matched with the ultra-masculine construction work? Even you men can appreciate that.
Ever see a beard that just makes you say, “Wow?” If James Harden of the Houston Rockets doesn’t elicit that response from you, something’s wrong. He keeps his face covered year round; if I was playing against him, I know I would be intimidated by his thick and bushy ‘fro of a beard.
Movember’s website has declared itself “Movember and Sons,” so I have to pay homage to its namesake — Marcus Mumford. This British folk singer may croon out some emotional lyrics, but he’s still a man’s man. He’s not always mustachioed, but when he is, he is doing it right.
