(WBIR-Knoxville) There will be a lot of beards in the Scruffy City this month. It is No Shave November across the nation. Men grow facial hair to help fight prostrate cancer. Fundraising dollars are donated to the American Cancer Society.
Here are a few things to know if you plan to participate in NSN 2013, also called Movember.
1.) The American Cancer Society has a detailed website that allows participants to sign up, donate and learn more about the cause.
2.) A barber at Frank's Barbershop suggests having your facial hair trimmed as it grows in November, allowing a sophisticated and clean beard to form. (Your boss will thank you.)
3.) Nothing Too Fancy, in Downtown Knoxville, carries a line of products to clean and style your beard. The beard shampoo, conditioner, oil and wax are all made in Tennessee.
4.) Why not remember this No Shave November with a keepsake? Earthbound Trading on Market Square has mustache boxes, picture frames and even mirrors shaped as a mustache.
