One Direction‘s Niall Horan and Brit singer-songwriter Olly Murs have chest hair…sorta. Niall recently Tweeted a pic of he and Olly comparing their man fur. My grandpa is LOLing in heaven. You call that chest hair?! See the photo below.
If you’ve got more hair than these two, check out these three awesome ways to use it for charity.
If your man fur grows just as slowly as Niall’s, it’s already time to start thinking about Movember! Every November, men grow their ‘staches out to raise funds and awareness for health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, but most fellas would rather talk about basketballs, footballs, and baseballs than…well…their own. So grow a ‘stache, grow some cajones, and let’s chat about the important stuff!
The OttiMat was invented by hair stylist Phil McCory after watching animal rescuers struggle to clean spilled oil out of otters’ pelts. He thought, “If animal fur can trap and hold spilled oil, why can’t human hair?” Made of 99% recycled human hair, OttiMats save the environment in two ways: they prevent lasting environmental damage caused by oil spills, and recycle some of the 60 million pounds of human hair sent to landfills from homes and salons every year. Daaaamn, that’s a lot of haircuts!
