Picture Book: Musicians with Mustaches
Filed under: Picture Book | Posted by:

It’s Movember, folks! Movember is the global fundraising movement dedicated to raising awareness of prostate cancer and men’s health. Thousands of men from across the world sign up and pledge to grow a mustache from scratch for the entire month November (no shaving)!

Jimi HendrixJimi Hendrix

Though I can’t technically grow a mustache (I am female after all), we still wanted to fully support the movement here at When You Awake so have put together this collection of some of our very favorite mustaches to lend you inspiration.

 David Crosby David Crosby

If Dylan, Parsons, Harrison, The Avett Brothers and just about every other one of our favorite musicians have worn mustaches, surely you can do it for one month for charity,  right?

Gram ParsonsGram Parsons

But that ain’t all. If any of you decide to participate, email us (whenyouawakela at gmail dot com) your page on the Movember website and we will not only 1) feature your profile on When You Awake but 2) put all of the readers’ names who completed Movember into a hat and choose one to make a special mixtape for at the end of the month (on any theme of your choosing). So get out those razors for one final shave and check out more of our favorite ‘staches after the jump.
