Vendor Spotlight: Fellow Barber
When trying to look your best, getting dressed is only half of the battle. Before you walk out the door and into the rest of the world you have to make sure your hair looks good, your skin looks clear, your facial hair is trimmed, you smell good, etc. Basically, you need to be well dressed and well groomed. Universal Gear is here to help with a wide variety of men's grooming products, the latest of which is Fellow Barber.
Fellow Barber is not just a line of products, but actually a small chain of modern barber shops "committed to offering a hassle-free, yet high quality experience, without the pretensions of a salon". With three barber shops in NYC along with locations in both San Francisco and Detroit, Fellow Barber is often credited for the revival of time-honored barber shop traditions. Their success has allowed them to create their own line of products which we are bringing to you at Universal Gear.
Facial hair is always a topic of dicussion when it comes to men, and each week the internet likes to change it's mind on whether it's in or out. No matter which side of the debate you stand on, knowing how to properly manage it is important. Their Shaving Cream makes for a smooth shave. The light and airy formula gives an abundance of glide. The cream is naturally scented and will not clog up your razor. Follow up your shave with their Aftershave Lotion The lotion helps your skin recover from a shave while moisturizing your face, cleaning off dirt and grease, and tightening your pores. Scented with natural oils, it will keep you smelling as fresh and clean as your face looks.
Having healthy hair is important, after all, Fellow Barber is a barber shop. To keep your hair looking it's best you'll obviously need a superior shampoo. The Complete Shampoo is just what you need to keep your hair strong. The light cleansing formula won't strip your hair and the mild conditioning formula keeps your hair looking natural. Tip: If you shampoo daily, use in small doses.
Your hairstyle is what really pulls together a 'look'. Unkept hair can really make you stand out for all the wrong reasons. The key is make it look deliberate, and depending on what you're going for depends on which products you should use. If you're looking for a more care-free and loose style, the Styling Cream is going to be your best friend. It has a very light hold and a hint of shine in the finish. Ideal for the man with mid to long hair or just the guy who doesn't like to be spending too long in the mirror with a comb. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you prefer to have more precise, detailed looks, then the Texture Paste is going to be your tool. The paste has a medium hold and matte styling, so it should be applied to dry hair. Use liberally for a stronger hold, or apply small amounts to tame waves of hair. Additionally, the paste will work better for men with coarser hair.
