Cast your vote for the Best Beard in America

-Votes will help determine who will become the next Wahl Man of the Year-

STERLING, Ill., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Now through Dec. 7, 2017, your vote will help determine the best beard in America. Men’s grooming leader, Wahl, spent the last year traveling to the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America; along the way, 11 finely groomed gentlemen ‘made the cut’ and were crowned champion of their city. These whisker worthy specimens are now finalists in the annual Wahl Man of the Year Contest. They are 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.

“Every year we travel the country in search of guys with great facial hair, and this year beards dominated,” said Steven Yde, division vice president for Wahl. “The eleven chosen beards are as different as the guys who wear them, so we’re excited to see which one resonates the most with the public.”

What is the Wahl Man of the Year Contest?

Wahl’s annual search for real guys with a real passion for facial hair kicked off this past April when the Facial Hair Friendly Cities Tour visited the No. 1 city, Dallas. The tour features 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.
