The Wilkinson Sword salon, which will open on London’s Charlotte Street, will be called Mo’s Moustache Emporium and will maintain participants moustaches for free. It will also sell a range of Wilkinson Sword products with profits going directly to charity.

Wilkinson Sword is supporting the drive with an integrated campaign, which includes press and online advertising and an experiential programme. A website and virtual store has also been developed as part of the campaign.
