Movember’s Guide To The Most Attractive Mo's

With the moustache phenomenon that is Movember set to return to New Zealand for 2010, men across the country are preparing their upper lips for a month of moustache growth. Whilst the average man finds Movember a great excuse to sport some upper lip hair for one month only, it can also be used as a great excuse to attract the ladies and use the mo as a talking point to strike up conversation.

For inspiring and encouraging ‘Mo Bros’ everywhere, Movember celebrates some of the most attractive moustaches:

Daniel Craig

He is adored by millions of women over the world ever since he emerged from the water wearing a pair of tight-fitting trunks in the Bond film, Casino Royale. Daniel Craig grew his trucker style Mo for his starring role as a Chicago police officer opposite Hugh Jackman in the highly anticipated Broadway production of A Steady Rain.

Brad Pitt

Brad originally grew his moustache for a role in Quentin Tarantino's film Inglourious Basterds, which he took quite a liking to and has only just recently shaved it off for a new movie role. He insists that growing hair above your lip will become fashionable again and it was once his goal to bring moustaches back.

Orlando Bloom

The Pirates of the Caribbean star grew his Mo for his appearance in the film. He wears a chevron style moustache, the most common style and the easiest to maintain. It is thick and wide and covers most of your upper lip. A very classy looking moustache, it can be carried off by practically anyone. A chevron may also be worn as light stubble instead of the usual thick facial hair.

Colin Farrell

Voted one of the most attractive men alive, Colin wears his Mo proudly. Apparently his facial hair was inspired by the recent pirate craze. Colin Farrell's 'stache-tickler combo gives him a swarthy charm fit for a man with his roguish reputation.

Tom Selleck

Known for his trademark moustache Selleck’s Mo is one of the most difficult to grow. You need to have very thick facial hair to start with and the moustache requires a lot of maintenance to keep it looking good. Ashton Kutcher is known to have Tom Selleck ‘tash envy’.

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood's finest, known for his roles in Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and more. Johnny's slightly fuller moustache, messy soul patch, and a two-pointed billy goat's gruff image was inspired by his work in Pirates of the Caribbean.

George Clooney

The Oscar-nominated actor sported a new major ‘stache for a part in Men Who Stare at Goats. George played a U.S. soldier who battles with the use of ancient Chinese mind techniques.

Robert Pattinson

R- Patz rocked out his upside down moustache for the film Little Ashes. Unfortunately Robert was unable to grow a real Mo – but is really working the painted on look.
