At the club it’s: ‘Hey man, look at Steve’s mo go’

HE MAY be as bald as a billiard ball on top, but Steve Seymour is leading the pack when it comes to his upper lip locks.

Almost two weeks into the Movember challenge, Mr Seymour has managed to not only sprout a respectable amount of hair on his face, he's even got the Chopper Read handlebars sculpted like a work of art.

"My tip is not growing any hair on my head; it's all on my lips," he said.

Mr Seymour claimed the secret was to shave his noggin every morning, forcing hair follicles to find other areas to sprout and seek sunlight.

"It's actually a bit of a shock to the system because I always just shaved in the shower, but now I've got to do it in front of the mirror and put more effort in - it's a whole new experience," he said.

And Mr Seymour isn't the only Yamba Bowling Club employee with a new beauty regime, a dozen other employees have also stepped up to the plate; some struggling a little more than others in the growth department.

Baby-faced Chris Munro, who initiated the Movember challenge at the club, said his moustache was starting to take shape - if you're standing up close at least.

"Steve is definitely winning, giving us younger ones a bit of a run, but there will be a prize for whoever has the best mo at the end of it," Mr Munro said.

The club hopes to raise at least $500 for the cause.

"We paid $10 to get in, and we have to pay a $20 exit fee if we want to shave it off at the end," Mr Munro said.

"So far we've raised $140 and that's just staff, so we have some tubs around the bar where people can donate and also on the last Friday of the month we will take a bucket around with our raffle to get some donations."

HANDY TIPS
Foods to approach with caution when sporting a Mo:

  • Glass of milk: real men drink from the carton.
  • Irish Cream Ale or Guinness: get a schooner of New instead.
  • Fairy Floss: Yeah, real manly.
  • Meat Pie when eaten with your hand: don't eat it any other way.
