STERLING, Ill., Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- From coast to coast, Wahl's mobile barbershop visited the Top 10 Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America in search of the most sensational scruff. While Miami topped the list of cities most facial hair friendly, the finest of facial hair hailed from the Windy City when Jeremy Davis won the top title in Wahl's annual Man of the Year Contest.
"Our annual facial hair face-off is designed to find and celebrate guys who embrace a whiskered lifestyle," said Steven Yde, division vice president of marketing for Wahl. "Not only do we seek out men with a knack for grooming, we look for men who consider facial hair to be an integral part of who they are."
"Jeremy exudes what it means to embrace facial hair as a lifestyle," continued Yde. "He's a believer in the impact it has on a man's overall look and confidence — and he has a great full beard."
Davis' beard is a bold outward expression of who he is; he changes up his look often to reflect his fun, outgoing, and adventurous personality. "My wife says I like being the center of attention, and my beard does that for me before I even have to say anything," he said.
As the next Wahl Man of the Year, Davis takes home a $1,500 Grand Prize, he will be featured in a national advertisement and he will rightfully reign as an example of great facial hair throughout 2017.
About the Wahl Man of the Year
Dubbed the ultimate 'mane' event, the Wahl Man of the Year Contest kicked off in May 2016 when Wahl announced the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America. The journey involved a 30-foot mobile barbershop and a team of Master Barbers traveling from city to city to give guys free trims and grooming advice. Whiskered delegates were chosen at each of the 10 most facial hair friendly cities, and one was chosen from entries outside of the top 10 cities. These 11 finalists each won $500 and a Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer. Online votes then helped Davis rise to the top of the facial hair food chain.
