STERLING, ILL. (Nov. 23, 2015) – Now through Dec. 2, 2015, your vote will help determine the best facial hair in America. As part of the Wahl Man of the Year contest, men’s grooming leader, Wahl, traveled to 10 of the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America in search of the best ‘scruff’ in the country. Eleven finely groomed gentlemen ‘made the cut’ and were crowned champion of their city. Votes on the Wahl Grooming Facebook page will help determine who wins the Grand Prize, which includes the title of Wahl Man of the Year, $1,500 and being featured in a national ad.
“Every year we embark on a mobile grooming tour to celebrate men who have a passion for facial hair excellence,” said Steven Yde, vice president of consumer marketing for Wahl. “We found some great candidates, and now we really want to hear from the public to find out what beard most resonates with them.”
What is the Wahl Man of the Year Contest?
Dubbed the ultimate ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year Contest kicked off this June when Wahl announced the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America. The journey involved a 30-foot mobile barbershop and a team of Master Barbers traveling from city to city to give guys free trims and grooming advice. Style delegates were chosen at each of the 10 most facial hair friendly cities, and one was chosen from online entries. These 11 finalists each won $500 and a Lithium Ion + Stainless Steel Trimmer, but only one will demonstrate facial hair excellence above all others.
