John Axford Teams with Wahl
-- Ace closer shares 3 reasons to “sport” facial hair and thoughts on ‘Man of the Year’ --
STERLING, Ill. (Sept. 6, 2011) – Facial hair and baseball go hand-in-hand. Some of the game’s most legendary figures are known for their signature ‘staches, beards and goatees. So, it’s only natural the company that invented the facial hair trimmer would team up with one of the game’s most recognizable facial hair supporters—Milwaukee Brewers pitcher John Axford.
Axford, whose Fu Manchu mustache and ninth inning magic have combined to make him a cult hero among fans and followers, announced today a new partnership with Wahl Clipper Corporation to promote excellence in what is clearly his second best attribute--facial hair. Axford’s new role as a “pitch man” for facial hair comes at the right time. Wahl is in the process of scouring the nation for its annual Man of the Year contest, which recognizes one guy with the best beard, mustache or goatee. Wahl also recently launched a new three-in-one grooming system called the Triple Play Trimmer & Shaver powered by Lithium Ion technology that comes with a series of quick-change heads which helps guys get a great look. Guys can enter their mug in the Man of the Year contest by submitting a photo at wahlnation.com. Guys can also enter in person at any Wahl Face the Day mobile tour events.
- Confidence. Whether stepping up to the mound or stepping into the office, choosing to wear facial hair is a bold move so it immediately sets you apart and asserts your confidence. This confidence will give you success on and off the field and allows you to “close the deal.”
- Power. The key to winning in any profession is to be assertive and facial hair gives you power over your opponent. Whether as a distraction or a way to show your high levels of testosterone, facial hair proves that you are a force to be reckoned with.
- Connection. Facial hair lets you showcase your personal style, which makes it easier for teammates and fans to connect with you. Experiment with a bold look or just change up your current look every once in a while and I can attest that guys will give you props and girls will be intrigued.
