CLEVELAND, April 4 (UPI) -- An Ohio store owner says he is stocking up on fake mustaches due to increased interest in facial hair sparked by Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

Steve Presser, owner of the Big Fun toy store in Cleveland, said he increased his fake mustache selection from about a dozen to about five dozen after Justin Bieber's March 5 Twitter announcement about growing out his mustache and Miley Cyrus' fake mustache during a March 3 appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Monday.

"Mustaches have become a symbol of levity. People, both male and female, put on a mustache and transform themselves into something else. It's a disguise, so they can act differently. They can be an evil villain or dapper gentleman," Presser said.
