You’ve probably noticed that at this time of year, a lot of men suddenly have mustaches. For the most part, this isn’t a fun fall fad: they are helping to raise funds for Movember, the largest men’s health charity in the world. Since its inception in 2003, more than 1,250 projects have been funded, supporting the most innovative research on men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Their goal is both simple and ambitious: to reduce by 2030 the number of premature deaths among men by 25%.

Whether it’s participating in Movember sporting your best mustache, or looking for a refreshed look, a professional barber can upgrade your style to another level.

Here are 5 downtown barber shops that offer men a unique experience far beyond a simple shave.
