It’s Movember, and men everywhere are letting their ‘staches grow free to raise awareness for men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. (Does this mean I can stop waxing my upper lip now?) In honor of ironic facial hair everywhere, we present you with the mustache of the week: Zac Efron!
It seems like just yesterday Zac was facial hair-free in “High School Musical,” now look at him.
The point of Movember isn’t just so that we can’t tell hipsters from normal folk — it’s to encourage men to speak openly about their health. Apparently the only thing men hate talking about more than their feelings is their — ahem — junk. Although 1 in 2 men are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, many men are afraid to have the important convos with their doctors and friends. A sweet ‘stache is a great conversation starter, and an easy way to bring up the hard stuff.
