A Movember to remember. A Movember to remember.

On most days, you will find Professor Paul Roof teaching Pop Culture and Sociology to students at Charleston Southern University.  

Roof probably doesn't look like your average professor, but then again, Paul Roof is no average guy. Paul has a conversation starter like no other--a nearly 10-year-old beard that goes on-and-on!

Roof competes worldwide with his flowing beard. In fact, he just got back from the World Championships in Germany. It's quite the process: 3-4 hours of waxing, blowing dry, and just good 'ole TLC.

While Roof has his facial hair year round, many around the Lowcountry are just starting to grow their whiskers, including many members of the News 2 staff.  It's all to bring awareness for men's health issues.

"If you are man enough to grow a beard, you're man enough to go to the doctor and talk about the issues," says Morgan Hurley of Mex 1 Coastal Cantina.

Saturday at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina in West Ashley you're invited to show off your 'stache.  The Holy City Beard and Mustache Society presents "A Movember to Remember." This family-friendly event starts at 6 p.m. and the 'Stache contest--for both men and women-- will begin at 9 p.m.

"We expecting some crazy staches and beards this Saturday night. I think we're going to see some of the best in Charleston, and maybe in the Southeast here. I'm pretty excited for it," says Hurley.

Hurley says he started his 'stache new for Movember.

As for Roof, he has gotten a pretty good head start, and he says, he's not done yet.

"I think I am going to the grave with the beard," says Roof.
