Wahl Expands African American Lineup

STERLING, Ill. (March 7, 2015) – Wahl, a leader in men’s grooming products, is continuing to meet the unique needs of African American men by expanding their lineup with the additions of the T-Pro Trimmer, Bump-Free Shaver and Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper. Since their introduction, these products have become popular in their category due to their power, precision and customization offerings.

“African American men have unique hair care needs that require specialized products,” said Steven Yde, director of marketing for Wahl. “These tools were designed to help guys find products that work with them and allow for customization of their grooming routine.”   

T-Pro Trimmer and Bump-Free Shaver

A common issue many African American men face when grooming their facial hair is pseudofolliculitis barbae, otherwise known as razor bumps. All too often, these bumps are caused by grooming tools that are not designed to prevent ingrown hairs. To help, Wahl is offering the T-Pro Trimmer and Bump-Free Shaver.

The T-Pro Trimmer is compact, yet extremely versatile, allowing guys to shave, detail, trim, fade and outline with one tool. Designed with African American men in mind, 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.

For those who want a super close shave, Wahl is offers the Bump-Free Shaver. It features hypoallergenic titanium foils for reduced irritation to prevent razor bumps. All about the details, it comes with a full-width pop-up trimmer for precise detailing of the side-burns and neckline. Its cord-cordless design also means you can plug in or groom on the go with up to 60 minutes of run time. Its sleek, carbon-fiber appearance and non-slip comfort grip also add to the shaving experience.                                                                              

Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper

For the home haircutter, Wahl’s Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper delivers a new level of close. The latest in home haircutting, it combines finely ground blade teeth and precision ground with self-sharpening zero overlap blades to deliver skin-close cutting without any pulling or snagging. Its POWERDRIVE® Plus Heavy Duty motor also delivers exceptional power and runs 15 percent cooler.

The T-Pro Trimmer, Bump-Free Shaver and Ultra Close Cut Pro Clipper are 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 $34.99.
