Portland is among the Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America. To celebrate, a 30-foot mobile barbershop will be parked at Pioneer Square on Sept. 28, 2017. Master barbers will be on hand offering FREE facial hair trims while seeking out the guy with the best scruff to represent the city as Wahl Man of Portland. That guy will win $500 and go on to compete for the ultimate title of Wahl Man of the Year. The event is part of a 10-city facial hair trimming tour, and also supports a good cause. For every free facial hair trim performed, Wahl will donate $1 to ZERO, the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end 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, the Wahl Man of the Year title.

The 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 Pioneer Square, or by uploading a picture on the Wahl Grooming Facebook page. More information can be found at
