Sterling, Ill. (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
Wahl Trimmers toured across the country this summer to celebrate facial hair and now 44 finalists are competing for top honors in the Wahl "Men of the Year" contest in the categories of best beard, mustache and goatee in America. A 42" flat panel HDTV will be awarded to the winners in each category in December.
Wahl Trimmers searched the nation for men sporting the best facial hair. While attending local events or right at home, thousands of men submitted a creative photo and reason on what makes them a WAHL Man (Well-Groomed, All-American, Hardworking, Loyal). Voters logged on nationwide to select their local favorite Wahl men. The votes have been tallied and finalists have been selected. Now top honors are at stake for the grand prize.
Voting for the WAHL Men of the Year will begin Tuesday, Oct. 28 at noon CST, and ends Sunday, Nov. 16 at 11:59 p.m. CST at http://www.wahlnation.com. Contest winners will be announced in December and posted on http://www.wahlnation.com through January 2009.

Having created the beard trimmer category in 1984, 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.
