Most men tend to be awkward about growing a moustache but this Movember contender is going against the grain.
Erik Nybo grew his treasured upper-lip hair for several months before parting with it for a good cause.
At 21 years of age he sported a connoisseur styled moustache “reminiscent of villains, British infantry and dapper detectives, ” according to the movember.com official website until November 1.
Mr Nybo said no cause would be better than Movember 2012 to raise money for prostate cancer research and mental health. Movember partners include the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Beyond Blue: the national depression and anxiety initiative.
The Kalgoorlie Miner visited Mr Nybo before he shaved off his moustache on the first of November to mark the beginning of regrowth.
Although Mr Nybo thinks he will be “weird” without his moustache he aims to raise $1000 during the month. To donate visit http://mobro.co/eriknybo or www.movember.com.
