The movement, started by Venice, CA-based men's health charity, Movember is simple and effective; during the month of November men grow a mustache from scratch to start the discussion on men’s health concerns specifically prostate cancer research and treatment.

Men from around the world begin the month with the annual inaugural “shave off” where participants are required to remove any and all facial hair. The Art of Shaving is actually inviting all registered participants into The Art of Shaving Barber Spa locations on November 1st for a complimentary “Movember Hot Towel Shave.” To keep your face neat & kissable throughout the month; The Art of Shaving is offering $10 “Movember Hot Towel Shaves” all proceeds from the ‘Keep It Neat’ Shave will be donated to Movember.
