Taste of Cincinnati Event Spectacular

For the first time at the Taste of Cincinnati the WAHL "Let It Grow!" tour will help Cincinnatians get a handle on their facial hair. Hitting the road with the WAHL "Let it Grow!" tour will be Ben Phillips, a celebrity stylist and salon owner, who will be giving free professional trims and hands-on advice for getting a grip on your mustache, beard, or goatee.
WAHL’s 30-foot mobile barber shop will be at the Taste of Cincinnati May 24, 25, and 26 on 5th Street near Vine St. from 12:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. On May 23, the tour will also be at the Cincinnati Wal-Mart located at Colerain Ave. from 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
On-site professional stylists will work with men on how to choose the right tool for the job and on mastering techniques for making the most of their look. WAHL trimmers are the choice of professionals, and stylists will be on hand to educate men on how to best trim and style their facial hair.
"While a lot of men may have learned to shave from their dads or older brothers, many of them never really learned how to maintain their facial hair,” explains Phillips. “They have often figured it out through trial and error which can sometimes end with disastrous results.”
