The "Stache" Is Back!

Vintage trends are in, with a revisit of shoulder pads (thanks Gaga ), plaid button downs and the return of the higher waist lines, it's no surprise that facial hair has made its way back to the scene. Facial hair has slowly been making a comeback with stars of young Hollywood sporting a little fuzz here and there. It all started innocently enough with Hollywood hunks like Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake rocking the scruff and then all of a sudden you couldn't turn the corner without seeing some guy showcasing his "3-day" look. Pretty soon various styles of the "stache" started springing up in the hipster scene and in gay bars across the metropolitan Meccas of America. Well, it's 2009 and sporting facial hair is in full trend, for those of you who dig this retro resurgence you can look no further than Universal Gear to help you with all of you manly grooming needs.
