This week, I was challenged with the momentous task of documenting the fall of Mr Dan Rookwood's mighty beard. This hairy demise comes with a purpose, as Dan is being sponsored to grow a moustache as part of the Men's Health team for Movember. Read the full article on MensHealth.co.uk and see the result of this brutal hair removal below.
Dan has this to say about the event...
"Some men swim the length of the Thames for charity. Others run 43 marathons in 51 days. Whatever. Last night I hacked off my beard and had my first clean shave since 2009. I think we know who’s making the bigger sacrifice here. Today is the first day of Movember, the month formerly known as November, when men – real men, goddamn heroes all of them – around the world grow a moustache for 30 days to raise three worthwhile things:
1 · Money for men’s health causes, specifically prostate and testicular cancer charities
2 · Awareness of men’s health issues more generally – which is essentially what we as a magazine try to do year-round, only with less dodgy face fuzz
3 · A few smiles – because let’s face it, moustaches = #LOLZ"
