STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years beards have become synonymous with sports, especially during the playoff season as a superstitious sign of solidarity amongst teammates. Most players happily go back-to-bare when the season ends, but baseball champion Jonny Gomes has continued to wear his much buzzed about beard throughout the off-season. With spring training right around the corner, Gomes is looking for a fresh start and he's teamed up with Philips Norelco, the world's number one electric shaving and grooming brand, to make it happen. "My motto is 'turn the page' and that starts with my facial hairstyle, especially when the beards of my teammates and I were such a focal point the past year," says Gomes. "With Philips Norelco electric shavers and groomers, it's easy for me to go into spring training with a new look for a new season. But first, I wanted to get a little crazy with my beard before shaving it all off." Gomes will take it all off before spring training begins later this month, but first he's testing a few new looks with the NEW Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 9100, the world's first beard trimmer with a laser guide. No stranger to precision, he's created a variety of beard styles, from an anchor beard, to a goatee, etc. And thanks to the laser guide, which projects a visible red line of light on the cheek, jawline and neck to show exactly where the hairs will be cut by the dual-sided precision trimmer, no stray hairs were left roaming the outfield. Check out the video below to see him in action!
In the coming weeks, Gomes will turn to Philips Norelco once again to get a clean shave for the new season, leaving his iconic beard behind.
