The Mustache Factor
What a mustache does to a man
A mustache is more than just overgrown facial hair that a man forgot to shave. Mustaches can project machismo. Did you know that in India, police officers get extra in their salary if they have a mo? It's because mustache can be a symbol of power and virility in some cultures. The rate of growth of mustaches depend on their genes, as well as on the season. Mo hair can grow faster during hot months compared to cold months.
Men with mustaches take their most seriously and there even is an American Mustache Institute. This organization looks up to Martin Luther King, Jr. as one of the most influential mustache Americans in history.
A mustache can exude an aura of confidence, manliness, and self-esteem. Because of this, many celebrities opt to grow their facial hair to enhance and project their alpha male qualities. However, Mustache Growing is not exactly simple and easy.
Mustache Growing needs dedication, patience and proper grooming. A man must be patient enough to wait for his facial hair to grow out and have the dedication to keep it grown until desired length is achieved. The first few days or growing out a mustache can be uncomfortable, but it's part of Mustache Growing and everything you need to endure to enjoy the feeling of sporting a mo.
Mustache used for cancer awareness
Aside from its aesthetic value, mustaches are also used for prostate and testicular cancer awareness. Every November, males all over the world including celebrities grow out their mustaches to raise funds and awareness for the cause. Because of this, the month is dubbed as November.
There is actually an annual contest for facial hair, called World Beard and Mustache Championships. The international contest has several categories including one for mustaches. There are subcategories under this: Natural, English, Dali, Imperial, Hungarian and Freestyle.
