As part of its annual facial hair contest, Wahl recently named Zack Brown from Marietta, Oklahoma, as its Wahl “Man of the Year.”
Each year, Wahl’s mobile barbershop visits the “Top 10 Most Facial Hair Friendly Cities in America” in search of the nation’s most winning facial hair. While finalists are chosen to represent each of the Top 10 Cities, the contest is also open to beards from across the country. In fact, after combing through hundreds of entries, Brown was selected as the 11th finalist in the ‘Man of Anytown’ category, and eventually won Best Beard in America top honors.
A deputy sheriff and retired Army Sgt., Brown said he dedicates his life to helping other veterans and first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through his charity, Casualties of War.
As the Wahl Man of the Year, Brown takes home a $1,500 grand prize.
