One of President Obama's top political advisers is shaving his famous mustache after all.

David Axelrod, who won a mustache bet with MSNBC host Joe Scarborough over election results, has decided to shave after all because Scarborough won a second challenge.

The shearing takes place Dec. 7 on Morning Joe.

Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski raised more than $1 million for Axelrod's charity, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.

Last month, Axelrod said he would shave if one of Scarborough's election predictions came true: That Republican Mitt Romney would carry either Pennsylvania, Michigan, or Minnesota. Obama won all three.
