MIDDLETON, Wis., Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rev your engines! Remington®, the trusted global personal care brand that embodies "How the World Gets Ready," will launch a week-long, six-city "Let It Grow" Beard Boss Tour across the Midwest and West to capture and highlight the essence of the increasing facial hair trend in the U.S.
Starting on Friday, October 17, Remington® and its picturesque four-man Beard Boss team, sporting an array of unforgettable and unique beards and mustaches, will travel across the U.S. from Madison, Wisconsin to Portland, Oregon, finishing at the World Beard and Mustache Competition on October 25.
The team, including Chris, James, MJ, and Ryan, along with Remington® employees, will load into the Beard Boss van, fully decked out in Beard Boss signage, in Madison, Wisconsin, and head west, stopping in Minneapolis, Fort Collins, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and, finally, Portland over a seven-day stretch. At each stop, Remington® will host local beard and mustache events to show support for the facial hair movement that has swept the nation, as well as engage with local charities and fulfill random acts of kindness. The tour will culminate at the World Beard and Mustache Competition, on October 25, where the team will meet Craig Bishop (Remington® Beard Boss Champion) to cheer him on as he competes for "Best Full Beard."
"It really takes true commitment to grow and maintain a beard or mustache, and that dedication deserves respect," said Devon Smiddy, Division Vice President of Remington® North America Product Marketing and Creative Services. "Simply put, beards are big. We want our customers to know that Remington® not only stands behind this trend, but we also understand and appreciate the time and effort that goes into maintaining these great styles. Each look is truly an expression of the individual, and our tour will celebrate exactly that. Why, just look at our Beard Boss team!"
