The Moustache, In Honour of Movember!!
The moustache has been around for along time, it is an iconic figure of the male face. A growth of hair under the MAN’S lip to tell apart the men from the boys!
A moustache (American English: mustache; pronounced /məˈstɑːʃ/ in RP and /ˈmʌstæʃ/ in General American) is facial hair grown above the upper lip. It may or may not be accompanied by a beard, hair around the entire face.

The word “moustache” derives from 16th century French moustache, which in turn is derived from the Italian mostaccio (14th century), dialectal mustaccio (16th century), from Medieval Latin mustacium (8th century), Medieval Greek moustakion (attested in the 9th century), which ultimately originates as a diminutive of Hellenistic Greek mustax (mustak-) “moustache”, probably derived from Hellenistic Greekmullon “lip”. However, the Hindi word “moochh” for a moustache also bears a close resemblance.
