Coventry Editorial 1st Nov, 2021 Updated: 1st Nov, 2021

Movember is back, the month where guys (or gals) are encouraged to let their facial fuzz bloom to raise money and awareness of men’s health issues – the charity funds projects across mental health, suicide prevention, and prostate and testicular cancer.

So if you’ve committed to grow a mo’ and asked friends and family to sponsor you, now you need to decide on a style for your upper lip accessory. Which will you choose?

To help you on your way, here are 9 terrific taches from celebrities past and present…

1. Prince

2. Tom Selleck

Known to many as Monica’s boyfriend Richard Burke in Friends, American actor Tom Selleck rose to fame in the 70s, when his style of ‘tache was the height of sophistication.

3. Borat

Played to hilarious effect by Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat favours a long moustache that almost reaches handlebar proportions. The Kazakhstan native’s signature look is, we can all agree, “Very nice!”
