How to Movember Correctly

Two of our own facial-hair enthusiasts share their grooming tips and picks to keep your ‘stache from veering into unwieldy territory.

Since 2003, the Movember Foundation has been deploying state-of-the-art mustaches as conversation starters to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. The movement challenges participants to grow, share and get active. But to be inducted as a Mo Bro (or a Mo Sista supporting all her Mo Bros) requires following a few rules and knowing a thing or two about facial-hair care.

We enlisted a couple of our grooming gurus to help with rules: Gerald Grinter, counter manager for men’s fragrance in Seattle, and Sankil Ward, men’s accessories and furnishings manager at the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego.

Those rules are 1) start clean-shaven, 2) grow and groom for the entire month so you can reach your full mustachioed potential without breaking rule 3) no fakes, no beards, no goatees.

Gerald and Sankil will be sporting their own mustaches this month, along with members of their teams.

Here’s what you need to know and the products Gerald and Sankil swear by.

So hang in there, gentlemen—and keep on cultivating, even in the face of humble stubble patterns.

Read on to see how some of our colleagues here at Nordstrom HQ are doing their part this Movember.
