Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been banging on (to just about anyone who’ll listen) about this the current Tacheback campaign, organised by the Everyman charity. In case you’re not familiar with the initiative, the charity – which raises much-needed money for research into testicular and prostate cancer – is asking men to grow a ‘tache in order to raise cash during September.
I’m growing one and, always one to go that little further, a full set of matching mutton chops too and implore you to have a go yourself. What’s more, with plenty of celebs sporting face furniture at the mo you’ll be bang on trend too.
To find out how you can take part have a look at the Tacheback website and take this tip from me – don’t forget to moisturise once that moustache gets going. I interviewed one of the barbers from Geo. F. Trumper’s recently about ‘taches and she stressed how important it was for any guys with facial hair to moisturise the skin under the hair since it can get especially dry. Simply take a blob of moisturiser and work in thoroughly with your fingertips.
