With Movember drawing to a close, Byron’s Petit Snail restaurant is offering the males of the species the opportunity to lose their carefully cultivated moustaches with dignity – and a glass of wine.

The sponsored shave is the idea of Petit Snail’s chef Igor (pictured) who will likewise be losing his.

French barber and hair stylist Adam JT from Fuz Salon will be shaving moustaches in style at the restaurant between 4 and 6pm.

Petit Snail will donate the wine, nibbles, the venue and all associated costs to Movember.

All the (male) French staff of the restaurant are growing moustaches for the cause and will also be shaved on the day.

Mo sisters are welcome to give their support or sponsor a moustache.
