Movember Madness at Stubble and Strife

by Dominic Holbrook

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.

The S&S team: Rav, Parveen, Teresa, Kuldip and Hernâni.

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.

We'd be lying if we said we'd ever seen, let alone eaten, a moustache-shaped quiche...

...or a moustache-shaped 1-year birthday cake in the process of being shaved.

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!
