Movember: inspirational moustaches of TV and film

Tom Selleck, Borat, Ron Burgundy and an upcoming attraction from Sherlock's John Watson – there are plenty of hairy heroes out there to take inspiration from this charity month

November is no longer just the month before Christmas. Oh, no. It’s had a hairy makeover in the form of Movember in which chaps across the land grow extra facial hair to raise money for men’s health charities.


Need inspiration for the type of ‘tash you want to achieve? Well, here’re some stars of the big and small screen showing you how it’s done… 

Tom Selleck

You can’t go wrong with a Magnum PI inspired look.

Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat

We like!

Will Ferrell as Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy

Yeah, he’s got a salon quality barnet AND facial hair.

David Suchet as Poirot

Who knows, you may even be able to solve crimes if you perfect this look!

Sir Bruce Forsyth

With a moustache like that you just have to be called Sir.

Peter Sellers as Inspector Jacques Clouseau

Why not investigate this look?

Michael Gambon as Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter

If your ‘mo’ becomes a beard and you have to tie it up you’ve been very successful this Movember. Beardcember here we come…

Matt Berry as Toast of London’s Steven Toast

Raise a toast to this hairy wonder.

John Cleese

There’s nothing Fawlty (oh the fun we have!) about this moustache.

John Watson in Sherlock

This beauty is a coming attraction, so far glimpsed only in the series three trailer…
