WWe're in the home straight to the end of Movember. Just ten days before we get to see most of our men back the way we like them. Those of us who don't like the look or feel of a beard were on the verge of creating our own charity initiative: no husband or boyfriend November. You have to tread carefully though. You never know who has facial hair solely for Movember or who has a hipster beard all year round.
