Wahl Style Selector Sweepstakes

Official Rules



SWEEPSTAKES Period: The Wahl Style Selector Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) begins February 5, 2024 at 12:00:01 AM Central Time (“CT”) and ends March 10, 2024 at 11:59:59 PM CT (“Sweepstakes Period”). The Sweepstakes Period will be divided into five weekly entry periods, each an “Entry Period.” Each Entry Period will begin on Monday at 12:00:01 AM CT and end the following Sunday at 11:59:59 PM CT.

ELIGIBILITY: Entrants must be 18 years of age or older or the age of majority in their state of residence, whichever is older, at time of entry and be legal residents of one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia. This Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law. Employees, officers, and directors of WAHL Clipper Corporation (“Sponsor”) and its parent company, affiliates or subsidiaries, advertising agencies, promotional agencies, and any other individual or company involved in the development, promotion, or execution of the Sweepstakes, and members of those employees’ immediate families (spouse and parent, children and siblings, and their respective spouses and children, regardless of where they reside), and persons living in the same household (whether or not related) of such employees are ineligible to enter or win. Sponsor will determine in its sole discretion whether a potential entrant meets the eligibility requirements. By participating, entrant agrees to these Official Rules, and the decisions of the Sponsor and/or its independent judges, which are final and binding in all respects.

HOW TO ENTER: Wahl is launching the brand new “Style Selector,” an AI-powered virtual try-on experience that allows users to test different hairstyles and facial hairstyles on an avatar-version of themselves. The Style Selector’s “Try Before You Trim” technology allows men to see what styles look good on them (with no regrets). It’s free, instant and allows you to save looks you love on your avatar, and access tools and guidance needed to get the look at home. During the Sweepstakes Period, visit www.styleselector.com and create an avatar style for yourself. Then, click on the share button to post your avatar as an in-feed post or story on your Instagram page (collectively, “Post”) with the following hashtags: #WahlStyleSelector and #sweepstakes and tag @wahlgrooming. The Post should not include any other hashtags. The Post and tag must be displayed on your Instagram account within an Entry Period to be eligible for that Entry Period. If you do not have Instagram, an Instagram account is free. The “Photos are Private” option in your Instagram account settings must be set to “OFF” so that your Instagram profile is public and thus viewable by the Sponsor. Each entry must comply with these Official Rules. Limit one entry per person and per Instagram account. Entries received from any person in excess of the limitation will be void if discovered by Sponsor. Multiple, separate entries may be submitted from different individuals residing in the same household. No forms of entry other than as stated in these Official Rules will be accepted. No mechanically or electronically reproduced entries (other than the use of the Style Selector) of any kind are permitted. Illegible and incomplete entries are void. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, mutilated, or misdirected entries or entries not received. If there is a dispute over who submitted an entry, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used to enter. The authorized account holder of an Instagram account is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to an Instagram account by Instagram.

SUBMITTED POSTS: The Post must: be the original creation of the entrant; not portray any recognizable individual, other than the entrant; not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights; not portray any dangerous activity; not disparage Sponsor or any other person or party affiliated with the Sweepstakes; not contain inappropriate, indecent, lewd, pornographic, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, or illegal content; not promote bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; and be appropriate for publication or broadcast or display on a general interest website.
