How to Get Winning Whiskers

It’ll take more than a muddy mug to get you noticed in this contest. In addition to the creativity of your Before & After photos, you’ll need well-groomed whiskers. To ensure a dramatic beard transformation, Wahl offers the following tips:

  • Leash the Beast – Facial hair can be like a wild animal and must be tamed accordingly. Keep it neat with a good trimmer, Wahl’s Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer is wrapped in a sleek armor, delivers a 6-hour runtime and with a series of interchangeable heads it’s an all-in-one grooming arsenal.
  • Take a Fresh Approach – The hair on your face is different from the hair on your head, so don’t reach for any old shampoo. Wahl’s beard wash has no irritants and won’t strip away the moisture needed for healthy whiskers and skin.
  • Get in Good Condition – Once your beard is clean, it takes mere seconds to deep condition it with Wahl's beard softener. It has special ingredients that penetrate the coarse whiskers and soften them from within.
  • Stay Strong – Last, but certainly not least, the most critical product for healthy facial hair is beard oil. It’s the finishing touch for a shiny and polished looking beard.
