Rebecca McKnight

Shout out to the Mo’ Bros – it seems at least a quarter of Irish women are turned on by your facial fuzz, with 25 per cent of survey respondents saying they find a groomed moustache sexy.

A new survey, (carried out by Gillette, naturally), has found that if men want to turn up the heat during Movember, then styling their Mo is the way to go.

Once the Movember job has been done, though, most women admit they are happy to see their significant others return to a smooth upper lip stance, with 60 per cent not fans of the ‘tache at any time of year.

When it came to famous facial fur, there was no question over the best celebrity moustache of all time – the honours of course going to Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck. Almost half of Irish women opted for screen sex symbol Selleck, closely followed by Sean Connery and George Clooney.

When it comes to the type of Mo women love, it all depends on the age; ladies over 55 are more likely to go for a Tom Selleck mighty Mo, while those under the age of 25 preferred Johnny Depp’s trimmed tash.

Since 2008 over 71,000 Mo Bro’s and Sista’s have raised 8.7 million for men’s health in Ireland with over 4 million Mo Bro’s and Sista’s raising 409m worldwide making Movember the largest non-governmental funder of men’s health initiatives in the world.
