Wannabe Hacks do Movember


It’s that time of year again when men can grow ridiculous facial hair without feeling like the only idiot in town. The month of November sees the ‘Movember’ campaign for prostate cancer awareness hit town. This year the Wannabe Hacks have decided they will be participating to help raise awareness and treat the world to our stunning stubble and magnificent moustaches.

The Hacks have seen a mixed bag of performances when it comes to beard / moustache growing prowess: the Chancer has a stunning inability to grow any flowing locks on his face, perhaps in line with his maturity level. The Student has been credited with what can only be called ‘dodgy’ facial hair and the Freelancer is unaware of any ability to produce a goatee or handlebar at all.

We will be keeping you up to date with the Hacks progress with photos of our chinny chin chins (first set of clean shaven starters coming soon) and we would also like to encourage all of our readers / fellow hacks to join in.

Please email in photos of your own attempts / progress or tweet them to us (@wannabehacks) with #hacksmo and we will put together a little gallery of Hacks contributions to the awareness campaign.

In the morning, as we welcome in the 1st of November, the race begins.

    As I have said before. Growing a full beard for a month then shaving all but the ‘tache on the 31st is unacceptable. Clean shaven except for the ‘tache at ALL times. I’m watching you Petrie…

      Agreed, I won’t be wet shaving every day, but won’t allow more than 2-3 days build up.
