If you haven’t heard of No Shave November, it was a movement started in 2009 by the Hill family in Chicago when their father passed away from colon cancer. Since then it’s become an annual tradition to raise money for charity to educate about cancer and support cancer initiatives. The premise is that for the whole month of November participants do not shave in order to create conversation around the topic of cancer and to spread awareness of cancer prevention to save lives. Men decide to embrace their hairy faces and donate any money they would have spent on shaving and facial grooming to cancer prevention and treatment.

In the spirit of No Shave November, we’re showcasing some cool looking facial hair found on the gram. While most of these are stylized beards and mustaches, it’s just more interesting to look at shaped facial hair than those that run wild and free! While some people might grow their facial hair for the cause, they might want to keep their facial hair after November as a new look. There are so many facial hair styles and shapes and depending on facial hair density and thickness, it can really change the look of the face.

Here are 10 beard and mustache inspiration pics to celebrate and spread awareness of No Shave November!

1) Seeing a beard of this thickness and length is not a frequent sighting! To grow beard hair this long takes real commitment and dedication. This beard looks well-maintained. Kudos to him for being able to manage it so well.

2) If you thought the first beard was crazy, this one will blow you away! How anyone can grow a beard this thick and this long is amazing. This is more hair than most people have on their head. But it’s probably quite heavy and difficult to manage and maintain. Regardless, facial hair of this stature is unique, eye catching and takes a lot of maintenance to keep it nice and groomed. What he lacks on top of his head he makes up for in facial hair!

3) Transitioning to a more tamed and groomed beard and mustache, this look is clean and to be honest, quite perfect. You almost don’t want to touch it for fear it will lose perfection. The crisp lineup, the even hairs at the bottom shape by scissors and the shaped mustache make this facial hair one to remember. The thickness and density are superb and the styling is fantastic. Paired with the rimmed glasses and slick back hair and he’s got quite a style going on.


4) While there’s likely not a pot of gold in that mustache, it certainly rings good luck. A fun twist on facial hair for St. Patrick’s Day, this Irish coloring is festive and fun. See…even beards can have fun with color. Think of other holidays and how a beard can transform with color.


5) While these beards and mustaches aren’t anything unique, what’s fun about it is the father son look. Where dad’s beard is completely white, the son’s beard is completely black. It’s a true representation of ‘like father, like son’ and the genetic tendencies to pass down how thick your facial hair can get based on your parent’s genes.

6) Speaking of white beards, check out this Santa beard with a twisted mustache. It’s a cool look that only some can pull off. But a beard and mustache like this must be maintained and groomed regularly to give it shape and style. He does a good job of this.


7) This man’s beard is really interesting. Black with white streaks, it almost looks intentional. But as artistic as it looks, when you start to go white you really have no control over where the white will come in. Sometimes it’s just fun to see what happens and where your hair color naturally goes.

8) Moving onto mustaches, this looks like it was curled with a curling iron! With the perfect twists at the end, the double handlebar is sure to get a double look from people passing by. A stache of this design requires a lot of wax to keep such a firm hold.

9) This mustache is quite different from the last. If you didn’t trim your mustache above the lips, this is what it would look like. It’s so thick and long, but still requires maintenance. Mustache wax helps to keep hairs in place.

10) Last but not least, the batstache. Yes, it’s completely stylized, but how can we write an article about beards and mustaches and not include the batstache? This takes precision and an artistic eye to make this shape. Using a razor to get that perfect shape is key to this look. A great Halloween facial hair look or for any Batman lover, the batstache is fun and awesome!

Well that’s it for our 10 beard and mustache looks to consider. But more importantly, we shed light on a serious topic…cancer. By spreading awareness of cancer, we can learn how to prevent it and support causes that have meaning.
