For over 15 years, the month of November has been dubbed as Movember. It has become the reason for men to ditch their razors and let their facial hair grow for a month. The celebration of Movember started in 2004 in Australia, led by the Movember Foundation (a non-profit organization). The goal is to raise awareness for testicular and prostate cancers. Ever since it was founded, the foundation has raised more than $911 million to fund over 1,200 programs focused on physical inactivity, mental health issues, testicular cancer, and prostate cancer.
Everywhere we look, we can see men rocking beard styles. Even when it’s not “No Shave November,” it looks like a large percentage of the male population have ditched shaving. We all recognize that bearded dudes are sexy. Recently, a scientific study even suggests that beards are a sign of higher testosterone levels.
The word barber was derived from the Latin term “barba” or beard, in English. To learn the complete history of barbering, we would have to turn back the clock a few thousand years. Let’s travel back in time to know the history of barbering.
All of us have bad routines and habits we want to change. The thing is, you shouldn’t wait for the New Year before you break them when you can do it now. When it comes to your beard, you might be doing things that greatly affects its growth and appearance. You have to remember that growing your facial hair require patience and care. Break these bad habits for healthy and better looking scruff.
Have you ever reached into your favorite beard balm and noticed that it feels bumpy and gritty? And, when you looked inside, you found out that its texture has changed. What a bummer! Yes, it might not have the ideal texture and appearance, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone bad.
