Here are Steve Salecich’s top 5 tips for achieving the perfect Mo this Movember.

#1 Picking Your Perfect Mo


Finding a Mo to suit your facial features is the first – and most challenging – step. In general, Trucker (otherwise known as Handlebar) for a round face and Errol Flynn (pencil-thin Mo) or Magnum for a square face. If you’re still at a loss, you can visit Movember’s Facebook page and let the Gillette Mo Picker app help you find your inner Mo.


#2 Prepping For Your First shave



It’s important to get off to a good start. The best time to shave is right after your shower, when the hairs are still soft. And to get your skin ready, I highly recommend a hydrating shave gel like the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide 2in1 Gel to really soften that bristle. Not only will this protect your skin, it also improves the glide of your razor for minimum irritation.

#3 Choosing Your Razor


It takes more than just a steady hand to get a shave right – a quality razor is just as important. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBallTM razor is my top pick. The razor’s unique FlexBallTM allows the blade to pivot to bring another range of motion to shaving, which adheres better to men’s facial contours and provides a shaving experience that’s second to none.

#4 Styling Your Mo



Whether you choose to go with the more intricate Errol Flynn, or the simpler Trucker/Handlebar, it’s always important to keep the skin around your Mo clean and smooth. My top tip here is to shave in the direction of hair growth, always keeping the skin taut at all times. Take your time to get it right and be sure to immediately rinse with cold water to close the pores and remove any traces of shave cream or lather.

#5 Mo Maintenance


Trimming your Mo regularly will help you keep the signature shape and style. I recommend applying a little grooming oil combed through with the Movember ‘Mo comb’ to keep your Mo in shape.
