Every November, men all around the country put down their razors and start growing out their mustaches and beards in honor of men’s health. It’s called “Movember,” and it’s a global charity event that has raised more than $650 million to fund research for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other men’s health issues. The idea is to start totally clean-shaven on Nov. 1, then let your facial hair grow in all month long as you raise funds for men’s health. Of course, just because you’re raising money for men’s health doesn’t mean you can’t use a product or two to keep that mustache or beard looking its best as it grows in. Here are a few spots around Denver where you can start your Movember month off right, with a clean shave and all the products you could need for a healthy mustache or beard.
