Barber Recruited to Trim 16 Foot Billboard Moustache

artmoustache.jpgMoustaches on billboards? Giant moustaches?

From the Scotsman:

"Most men struggle to keep their five o'clock shadow in check. So imagine having to contend with whiskers you could play jump-rope with, or even wrap around a family saloon car.

This is the task visited upon one Edinburgh barber recruited to groom a 16-feet moustache currently adorning a Haymarket billboard."

Return of the Scruffy Face?

Return of the Scruff.jpgIs the smooth look on its way out? Some think so.

From the Edmonton Journal:

"It used to be for many people that beards were synonymous with lumberjacks and moustaches were the realm of Tom Selleck, French waiters and porn stars.

But thanks to A-list celebrities and that yearly phenomenon known as Movember -- a moustache-growing charity event held during November -- facial hair is back in vogue and furry little things are showing up unabashedly on all sorts of mugs.

Study: CEO facial traits linked to higher pay

CEO Face.jpgFrom the Ventura County Star:

"Becoming a corporate CEO is supposed to involve hard work, long hours and business acumen.

It also often requires a solid jaw line and small, piercing eyes, according to a new research study from three finance professors at Duke University.

Titled "A Corporate Beauty Contest," the study asked nearly 2,000 people, mostly college and graduate school students, to rate the facial traits of corporate CEOs alongside non-CEOs and heads of smaller companies. The results suggest that looks do indeed matter in corporate boardrooms."

Second Best Moustache in the World: Pro Skater Patrick Melcher

From GQ:


"Patrick Melcher drives a BMW, blocks all his own hats, and officially has the second-best moustache in the world. On his board, Patrick Melcher fuses unprecedented feats of balance and speed and just generally presides over all things paved with the savage grace of a rabid flamingo. He also looks good doing it, whether he's sporting a trim biker jacket on an outlandish wall-ride or a yellow-feathered Fedora while pole-jamming off a seven set (look it up)."

Two Day Shadow Trending among Professionals

twodayshadow.jpgAccording to the Times Colonist, the newest facial hair trend is growing and maintaining the perfect two day growth of beard for a 'clean, tight beard'.

"The reasons for the shift to carefully kept fuzz are anyone's guess: Maybe today's young professionals are yesterday's bearded hipsters all grown up, or maybe they're neatening up in anticipation of an economic rebound."

What do you think about this trend? Is it here to stay, or just the flavor of the month?
