New Bump-Free Shaver From Wahl Delivers Comfort and Joy This Holiday Season

STERLING, ILL. (December 21, 2015) – Thanks to men’s grooming leader Wahl, finding that last-minute gift for the guys on the list will be a little less painful. The  Bump-Free Shaver, part of Wahl’s multi-cultural line of grooming tools, is designed to deliver a super close shave without razor-bumps, a common issue among African American men.

“Our multi-cultural grooming tools are designed to meet the specific needs of African American men and the Bump-Free Shaver is a great example of this,” said Steven Yde, vice president of consumer marketing for Wahl. “It’s the first shaver of its kind to provide a close, comfortable shave without the usual skin irritation that often accompanies it.”

Pseudofolliculitis barbae, otherwise known as razor bumps, occurs when facial hair grows back into the skin. This can be caused by grooming tools that are not designed to prevent ingrown hairs. With this in mind, Wahl developed its Bump-Free Shaver with a hypoallergenic titanium foil, which together with new blunt-cut technology, reduces inflammation without sacrificing a close shave.

The Bump-Free Shaver features a sleek, carbon-fiber appearance and non-slip comfort grip. It comes with a full-width pop up trimmer for precise detailing of the side-burns and neckline and offers a cord-cordless design that allows you to plug in or groom on the go with up to 60 minutes of run-time. 

The new Bump-Free Shaver complements Wahl’s full line of multi-cultural products which include the T-Pro Trimmer and Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper. This line is engineered to deliver close and comfortable grooming without pulling or snagging.

T-Pro Trimmer

The T-Pro trimmer is compact yet extremely versatile, allowing men to shave, detail, trim, fade and outline with one tool. It combines a diamond-finished T-blade design and Wahl’s bump-prevent technology to deliver a smooth and even cut. It’s backed by a powerful, heavy-duty rotary motor and corded operation that promote uncompromised cutting through all hair types.

Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper

For men who like to cut their hair at home, Wahl’s Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper delivers a new level of close. The latest in home haircutting, it is the right tool for balding, outlining and detailing. Its self-sharpening zero overlap blades deliver skin-close cutting without any pulling or snagging. The POWERDRIVE® Plus Heavy Duty motor also delivers exceptional power and runs 15 percent cooler.

Wahl’s multi-cultural line of grooming tools is available at select retailers nationwide. The T-Pro Trimmer MSRP is $24.99; the Bump-Free Shaver MSRP is $69.99; and the Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper MSRP is $39.99.
