A salute to the hirsute

Once again, a number of facial follicles are being left to run rampant this month to raise funds for men's health as part of Movember celebrations.

Actor, lion tamer, moustache magician

The top hat and moustache combo is an enduring style. And, rocking the Daniel Day Lewis/lion tamer/creepy magician look to absolute perfection, the addition to the face of APN's Rowan Spinks has been deemed good enough to take home the agency Mo of the Week title and a $150 voucher from The Grill thanks to TVNZ.

O'Connor's purple lip slug and soul patch combo wows judges

Coloured facial hair is usually reserved for those who drive housebuses, members of hair metal bands or Billy Connolly. It's certainly not too common in this biz, but Carat's business director Gareth 'Connolly of the South' O’Connor has used colour to great effect and been rewarded with the mo of the week title.

Movember's hairy memories to live on as Schick and Y&R immortalise the mo

During the annual hirsute pilgrimage that is Movember, many participants become quite attached to their new lip slugs. So, to ensure that the memory lives on, Schick and Y&R have created a Facebook campaign called Mount your Mo to not only reward the dedicated men of New Zealand for their efforts, but, through the wonder of taxidermy, to "allow them to keep their pride without prejudice".

Agencies urged to grow for a cause

Two days in to November and the lip hair of males around the country is already sprouting. The Movember industry challenge also kicked off yesterday, and while there are a few publishers stepping up to the mark, it could do with a few more contenders from agency land. But there's still time. And all those who enter will be up for some tasty beverages, with Mo of the Week sponsored by TVNZ, which is putting four $150 bar tabs up for grabs, and Most valuable Mo sponsored by iSite, which is putting up a $300 Libertine voucher. Robert Dunne, the Movember country manager, will be picking the winners. So if you're up to the task, register now, join your agency team and the Movember agency challenge (or become a team captain for your business) and show the industry just what kind of incremental growth you can deliver.
