Sterling, Ill. (PRWEB) January 20, 2010

Tens of thousands of votes nationwide have been cast to help narrow down the field for potential Wahl Trimmers Man of the Year royalty. Now, 42 finalists sporting the most jaw-dropping beards, mustaches and goatees in America stand at the foot of the facial hair pedestal waiting to be crowned Wahl Man of the Year. Beginning Jan. 18, 2010, the public may cast their vote at www. wahlnation. com. A 42” flat panel HDTV will be awarded to the winners in each category in March.

Wahl Trimmers’ mobile barbershop crisscrossed the country throughout 2009 to celebrate facial hair and find the finest specimens in the Wahl Man of the Year contest. While attending local events or from the comfort of their home, thousands of men submitted a creative photo exhibiting their facial hair prowess. The votes have been tallied and finalists have been selected. Now top honors are at stake for the grand prize. Voting for the Wahl Man of the Year will begin Monday, January 18 at 5 p. m. CST, and ends Monday, February 8 at 5 p. m. CST at www. wahlnation. com.

“Wahl is the Lewis and Clark of facial hair – exploring the U. S.A. for unrecognized facial hair potential and excellence,” said Wahl celebrity & master barber, Ben Phillips. “From nooks and crannies around the country, people have submitted their top caliber facial hair.”

Along the tour, Wahl used the new Lithium Ion grooming tool to handle the wide array of facial hair. It is the first tool to harness the power of lithium ion technology – the most technologically advanced rechargeable battery available. Interchanging heads allow for trimming, ear and nose hair detailing, shaving, hair clipping and all other necessary grooming. The Lithium Ion grooming kit is a great gift idea for the 64 million men nationwide who sport some sort of facial hair.

This is the fourth year Wahl has travelled the country with its mobile barbershop to celebrate facial hair and educate men on proper trimming techniques. Having created the trimmer category in 1984 with the first beard trimmer, Wahl continues to lead the country in men’s grooming tools, which include beard, mustache, goatee, nose/ear, body and a line of multi-cultural grooming tools.
