I received this information from Zach and really appreciated the share. I hope you enjoy it too!

What a great way to support the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, experience a great WAHL product, while taking in the finest College World Series at Rosenblatt Stadium. The final year at Rosenblatt.   Men, I hope you will lend your support, and your faces!



– WAHL seeking to end unkept facial hair epidemic while supporting National Fallen Firefighters Foundation –

STERLING, Ill. (May 13, 2010) – It’s no coincidence that as the weather gets warmer, personal appearance becomes a higher priority. And while clothing and hairstyles get most of the attention for those seeking to look their best, properly groomed facial hair is often overlooked—and misunderstood. In an effort to help all those suffering from crooked goatees, out-of-control mustaches and bushy beards this summer, WAHL, a leading manufacturer of grooming products, is coming to the College Baseball World Series to help area men get a handle on their facial hair.

The WAHL Let It Grow tour is buzzing across the country to provide free professional trims and trimming tips at events where unkept men can be found. The tour is coming on the heels of a recent study from WAHL that reports nearly 60 percent of men nationwide grow some style of facial hair throughout the year and many desire instructions on how to improve their style. The tour’s mission: Support men on their quest to define their personal style, and educate those seeking assistance from facial hair experts.

“The first thing people notice about you is your face, and well-maintained facial hair can be a make or break with that all-important first impression,” explains celebrity stylist, salon owner and WAHL Master Barber Ben Phillips. “Unfortunately, maintaining facial hair is a game of trial and error for most guys. They learned how to shave from their dads or older brothers, but no one taught them the ins and outs of facial hair maintenance. That’s the void we’re hoping to fill with this tour. WAHL wants to help men choose the right style and educate guys on the best techniques to achieve that look.”

WAHL’s 30-foot mobile barbershop features a team of professional facial hair stylists who are prepped to groom men, offer tips and when prompted discuss sports, vintage cars and other topics heard in a typical barber shop. For those looking for a little more pampering and entertainment, the barbershop also offers WAHL massage products, a strongman competition and music.

College Baseball World Series from June 18 to June 20 located at 3362 South 13th Street.  The trimming team with be in full force from:

  • June 18 – 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • June 19 – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • June 20 – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

If looking your best is not enough of an incentive for guys to participate, WAHL hopes they will consider supporting a great cause. For every trim performed, WAHL will donate one dollar (up to a maximum of $2,500) to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, a non-profit organization that honors America’s fallen firefighters and assists their surviving families and coworkers.

In addition, those freshly groomed Omaha men that participate are automatically entered into the 5th annual WAHL Man of the Year photo contest, a search of the best beard, mustache and goatee in America. One finalist will be named in each category at all tour stops. National winners will receive a 42-inch flat panel HDTV in each category.  WAHL will post all eligible entries to beginning May 31, 2010 and voting will remain open through November 8, 2010 at 5 p.m. CST to determine the finalists.  All finalists will win an mp4 player.  The national winners in each category – beard, mustache, and goatee – will be announced by February 15, 2010. Entry into the WAHL Man of the Year competition can be done on-site during the WAHL Let It Grow mobile tour or at beginning May 28 at 5 p.m. CST.
