There is an epidemic RAGING through hot man land: wildly unnecessary patches of facial hair. The latest victim? Mr. Zac Efron. In exhibit A (photo, far left), we spot Zac EXACTLY one week ago sporting what looks like a grosstastic goatee/soul patch/mustache combination. We ALLLLLL know what we think about soul patches here at MTV Style (coughNOTHANKYOUcough), so we douchechilled at his hairy conundrum while courtside at a Lakers game. Interestingly enough, it seems that Zac wanted to turn his creep factor up JUUSSTTT a notch so he went for a FULL-OUT MUSTACHE. We literally did a triple take when we saw our FAVE hottie sporting some upper-lip fringe just two days ago, and we just kept whispering to ourselves, “This isn’t real. This isn’t real,” while gently cradling ourselves and rocking back and forth. Just when we were on the edge of a nervous breakdown, we spotted Zac out last night with a (gasp!) CLEAN SHAVEN FACE!!! Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigggh. FINALLY his chiseled jaw is out in all its glory, and we can stare at those baby blues without ANY distractions. Zac, you are a brave soul and we commend you for your heroic hair efforts. Unfortunately, other men aren’t so lucky.
