Wahl Names New Man of the Year
After traveling to the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America, and scouring through hundreds of contest entries, 12 men ‘made the cut’ as finalists in Wahl’s annual Man of the Year Contest. Pittsburgh was number 20 on the list of facial hair friendly cities, but one of its bearded locals rose to the top in this national facial hair face-off – Conor Barrett prevailed with the coveted title of Wahl Man of the Year. As the next Wahl Man of the Year Conor took home a $1,000 Grand Prize, and will be featured in a national advertisement.
About the Wahl Man of the Year
Dubbed the ultimate ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year contest kicks off when Wahl embarks on their annual Face the Day Tour. The journey involves a 30-foot mobile barbershop and a team of Master Barbers going city to city giving guys free trims, grooming advice and keeping a look out for real guys with a real passion for great facial hair.
In 2014, a style defining delegate was chosen at each of the eleven tour stops, and one was chosen from online entries. These 12 finalists each won $500 and a Lithium Ion + Stainless Steel Trimmer, but only one demonstrated facial hair excellence above all others. Voting on the Wahl Grooming Facebook page helped determine the overall winner.
