It is rumored that PETA started the whole mustache craze with their campaign “Grow Your Own Fur” back in 2010. PETA posted a picture of a rabbit wearing a fake mustache with “You can help stop the killing of animals for their fur by growing your own fur” as the slogan for the campaign.
The craze started off slow, but gained momentum by late 2011 with Movember -- a campaign in which men grow mustaches throughout the month of November to help gain awareness to men's health. Women decided to get in on Movember by sporting a fake mustache throughout the month. Movember even teamed up with Toms shoes to create a shoe with a mustache printed on the side.
Some mustache fans have even gone as far as tattooing the famed mustache onto their bodies. What’s the most popular spot? The inner index finger. Might seem like an odd spot to get a tattoo, but every time the index finger is placed between the nose and mouth, the tattoo will sure get a few giggles. The second most popular spot is on the lower back which puts a fashion-forward twist on the tramp stamp.
As more companies jump onto the bandwagon, more fuel keeps being added to the flames. Will this trend continue for all years to come or will it go down in ‘staches?
