Wahl Debuts Man of the Year Contest

       

       

STERLING, Ill.–Wahl Clipper has launched its fifth annual Wahl Man of the Year photo contest, in which the company chooses the man with the best beard, mustache and goatee.

Participants must submit their photos and contact information online at wahlnation.com by 5 p.m. Central Standard Time on Oct. 10. The company is conducting this year’s contest in conjunction with the Wahl Let It Grow tour, in which its 30-foot mobile barbershop travels the country to identify Man of the Year contestants and to provide tips on maintaining a variety of facial-hair styles. The tour is stopping at more than a dozen cities and providing free professional trims and tips.

The national winners in the beard, mustache and goatee categories will be announced on Feb. 15, 2011. Contest winners will receive a 42-inch, flat-panel high-definition television, and finalists will receive an MP4 player.
