November is a weird month. The Christmas decorations are already on sale, the cold weather is drawing in, and a fresh group of upper lips become acquainted with moustaches for the first time.
To brighten up the dark days, the good people at Stubble & Strife, “The Great Shave Salon” threw a Movember Fundraiser and 1st Year celebration extravaganza at Henry’s Den, which Bearded London was happy to attend.
Guests were treated to music by acoustic singer Roo and her band (both appropriately bearded), and Chivas Regal whiskey sampling, and moustache themed food. A LOT of moustache themed food.
We don’t know if there is a cottage industry in moustache shaped food but there really ought to be.
Started one year ago by husband and wife team Rav Roopra and Parveen Dhandra, Stubble & Strife has gone from strength to strength, emphasising both long standing classic brands along with new rising stars in British beard, moustache, shave and skin products, as well as offering a rather magnificent shave.
Originally based in Greenwich Market on Sundays, the salon is currently occupying a pop-up store in Old Street station till the end of November, as well as attending other markets and corporate events.
Happy Birthday Stubble & Strife! We wish you many more!
