Mission:Repair No Shave November Winner Announced!

Hello M:R Nation –

Now that November is in our rear view mirror, we can move on to a more cleanly shaven month. I for one can say that I am ready to not stare at unkept, hairy dudes all day. So now that all of that fun is over, lets take at how our contestants fared. Below you will see the before and after shots of the brave souls that didn’t drop out of the competition midway through.

As you can see, some of these blokes really put on the scraggle for the occasion. David (Left Bloke) decided to go with the stash on the last day and might I say, it fits him well? He looks a little Walter White-ish.

So now that you have seen the runner ups. I would like to introduce the winner! With a nearly epic growth, I would like to announce Phil Esau as the winner of this years Mission:Repair No Shave November!

Our good friend, Phil has been with Mission Repair for years now and we think his ability to grow a beard might be a cover up for a super power of some sort. So if you talk to Phil over the next few days, make sure you congratulate him on this stellar victory! Phil is now a proud subscriber to www.dollarshaveclub.com and I can’t wait till he gets his first shipment in and I’m sure his wife feels the same way 🙂

Speaking of Phil, did you know he is one of our great Apple Certified and C++ computer technicians? Yep, that is what he does around here and he is one of the best. So if you find yourself in need of a Glossy 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair or a Glossy 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair , he is one of the gents that will be getting the job done! So with Phil at the helm, you can PHIL confident (Get it?) that your computer is in good hands and will be repaired properly!

Cheers, Troy

No Shave November!

Hello M:R Nation –

I have a few blokes here at Mission Repair that were talking about participating in “No Shave November”. The main reason for this is to raise awareness for men’s health, but there have been many tales of its origins. I myself, think its simply an excuse to be lazy and I embrace that!

I have a total of 8 gents that I will be chronicling for the next 4 weeks. I will take a picture of their progress once a week and post it right here on our wonderful blog!

Say Hi to Jake, David, nick, Ryan, Albert, Phil, Justin and Lennie!

So here they are, the 8 brave/lazy souls participating in this storied tradition(I’ll spare you and them of a large sized picture )! As you can see, some of them already have a head start. This should make for some epic beardness for sure! While I sport quite the fancy beard myself, I am not 100% sure that I will let it grow rugged yet. I will keep you updated on that decision.

We like to turn things into a competition around here and this is going to be no different. While I have no idea on how I will decide the winner yet, I do know the prize. I find it a much needed prize to be handed out in this situation.It is a years subscription to the Dollar Shave Club paid for by Mission Repair! I love this company and am a proud member so I can vouch for the prize!

I would like to make this something our readers can benefit from as well, I will also provide a years subscription to the most Epic beard or other hair growth (I know it sounds nasty, but we are about equality here at MR, so men and woman are welcome to join but keep it PG) to one of our brave/lazy readers :-)!

To join the competition, you will need to send in 4 different pictures to troy@missionrepair.com titled NSN Entry and here is what I will need from you:

1) Starting Point Picture

2) Week 2 growth

3) Week 3 growth

4) Final Week growth

By joining the competition, you agree to have your picture posted here on the MR Blog if you are named the winner. Happy November to everyone and good luck on those beards!


please note: This competition in no way, shape or form will interfere with our awesome iPhone, iPodiPad, Smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC repair services !

Cheers, Troy
