Wahl on hunt to find best facial hair in the country

BY Antoinette Alexander

STERLING, Ill. — Looking to find the best facial hair in America, Wahl is kicking off its annual Wahl Man of the Year competition and is sending a 30-ft. mobile barbershop city to city.

"For many guys, facial hair is much more than a trend—it’s a badge of honor," stated Steve Yde, marketing director for Wahl. "That’s why the Wahl Man of the Year contest exists. It’s about recognizing and honoring those who not only wear facial hair, but do it with pride."

Dubbed the ultimate facial-hair faceoff and the ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year contest gives facial hair enthusiasts the chance to go head to head, or in this case, face to face, against the country’s best beards, mustaches and goatees. Fifteen finalists will win $500 and a Wahl Lithium Ion + Stainless Steel Trimmer. One contestant will emerge the 2013 champion and will receive a $1,000 grand prize. Those who think they have what it takes to compete can enter online at WahlNation.com. The Wahl Man of the Year competition runs through Oct. 28.

To find its next Man of the Year, Wahl is sending its 30-foot mobile barbershop city to city, stopping at major fairs and festivals across the country. Titled the “Face the Day Tour,” those who stop by can enter the contest while also receiving some help getting their facial hair in game shape. Wahl’s team of master barbers will be on hand to provide free facial hair trims. For every facial hair trim performed, Wahl will donate $1 to ZERO, a foundation that is helping to fight against prostate cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men.

"As a family-owned company, Wahl is always looking for ways to use our products for good — whether it’s supporting charitable organizations based on free trims or donating clippers and trimmers to support head-shaving and facial hair growing events," Yde stated.
