New York is among the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities. To celebrate, Wahl will be at Times Square on the 7th Ave. curb lane facing the sidewalk @ 42nd St. with a 30-foot mobile barbershop. Master barbers will offer FREE facial hair trims while seeking out the guy with the best scruff to sponsor as Wahl Man of New York. That guy will go on to compete for the ultimate title of Wahl Man of the Year. The tour also supports a good cause. For every facial hair trim performed, Wahl will donate $1 to ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer.
Dubbed the ‘mane’ event, the Wahl Man of the Year contest gives facial hair enthusiasts the chance to go mano a mano in a facial hair face-off. Wahl will select one guy from each tour stop location and one guy from online entries. These lucky few will be crowned champion of their city and go on to compete for the ultimate in facial hair glory, Wahl Man of the Year title.
The 10 finalists will each win $500 and a Lithium Ion + Stainless Steel Trimmer. Online voting will help determine who wins the Grand Prize, which includes the coveted title of Wahl Man of the Year, $1,500 and being featured in a national advertisement.
Men can enter by visiting Wahl’s Mobile Barbershop at Times Square, or by uploading a picture using #OfficialSponsorOfFacialHair to Twitter or Instagram. More information can be found at OfficialSponsorOfFacialHair.com.
