Who Has the Best Facial Hair in America? Help Wahl Decide

Man of the year 2016

STERLING, ILL. (Nov. 4, 2016) – Now through Dec. 1, 2016, your vote will help determine the best facial hair in America. Men’s grooming leader, Wahl, spent the last five months traveling across the country to the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America. Along the way, 11 finely groomed gentlemen were crowned champion of their city and became finalists in the annual Wahl Man of the Year Contest. These finalists are now going face to face, as 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.

“We’re in the business of celebrating great facial hair, so every year we travel the country in search of guys who epitomize facial hair excellence,” said Steven Yde, division vice president for Wahl. “We know a great mustache or beard when we see one, but we want America to help us determine the best of the best.”

What is the Wahl Man of the Year Contest?

Dubbed the ultimate ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year Contest kicked off this May 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 ten 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.
