Women in Moustaches

ddWomen have been pushing the limits and wearing fake moustaches to express their distaste for the strict gender roles society has imposed upon them. OR… it’s just a trend! Either way, we are seeing a major comeback for the stache in men and women alike.

“According to an article in the ‘Journal of Nonverbal Behavior,’ men grow moustaches, beards, and sideburns when they have difficulty getting hitched. In fact, data from 1842–1971 suggests that the number of men with moustaches increases when there is an ample supply of single men on the prowl. Conversely, the moustache ratio decreases when men are cheating.” (Found on Trend de la Creme) Well honey- if this is right, then the men and women are prowling! Huffington Post has named 2009 The Year of the Moustache, and we have already seen them in film, television and on the runway.

  1. I think the trend is a wonderful start to the new year 2009 and men should start wearing lipstick and maybe even shimmer….when will people realize that gender doesn’t matter…we are all people…
