IT'S that time of year when we start to see the wispy bits of hair remain unshaven on many blokes' upper lip as we step into Movember.

While it's noted some are a little more blessed when it comes to growing the ultimate Chopper Read moustache, it's a big thumbs up to everyone who has a go.

Hairdresser Jessica Carey of JC's Inspirational Hair has jumped on board with the cause, and while she is not growing facial hair, she is offering those with a mo or beard the chance to dye it whatever colour they choose to help raise money for prostate cancer.

"There is not much awareness for prostate cancer; it all tends to be towards breast cancer and so I thought I would do something different," Ms Carey said.

"I have been researching it and the statistics are pretty bad so I though it was a good idea."

The first of the brave men to take to the hairdresser's chair was Bill Doran who chose a blue and pink combination for his new look.

"At Christmas time I usually dye it red and green so I thought I'd do it for this too," Mr Doran said.

Ms Carey is offering the beard or moustache dying for $5-10 with all proceeds to go towards prostate cancer.

Also, for the month of November, $2 from every men's trim, mo or beard trim will go towards the cause.

So if you're reppin' the school boy mo, thin pencil look or the whole horseshoe, drop into JC's Inspirational Hair on Grafton St (near Mitre 10).
