WAHL 5 STAR CORDLESS SENIOR NOW AVAILABLE

The iconic tool barbers and professional stylists have been asking for is officially back and permanently here to stay. When first released in 2018, the Cordless Senior was greatly sought after, but the clipper was only available for a limited time. Now back by popular demand, this heavy-duty tool is designed to have strong cutting power to be able to handle on-scalp fading, clipper-over-comb, and bulk hair removal.

“The Cordless Senior is something you always wished for as a barber but would never believe could happen in a million years,” says Wahl Education and Artistic Team member Garland “G-Whiz” Fox (@thisisgwhiz). “And here it is, the Cordless Senior, the most powerful Wahl cordless clipper hands down.”

The Cordless Senior has a lithium-ion battery that gives the tool a 70+ minute run-time before needing another charge. This clipper comes in a sleek black and gold casing that allows barbers to cut in style while delivering on all the power. The tool comes with three Premium Cutting Guides (1/16” – 3/16”) and with a 5 Star surgical fade blade that allows a higher blade speed. Although lightweight, this iconic clipper has a powerful motor that places it at the forefront of haircutting technology.

“I believe this clipper will continue to be a favorite of our long-time Wahl fans and will attract a new fan base looking for a lot of power in a cordless option,” says Anne Marie Kollias, Wahl Professional’s U.S. Director of Sales and Marketing.

The Cordless Senior retails at $159 and can be found at wahlpro.com for more information

WAHL METAL EDITION CORDLESS MAGIC CLIP RELEASED FOR LIMITED TIME ONLY

The limited-edition release of the vintage-inspired clipper is finally here with the Metal Edition Cordless Magic Clip. Barbers and stylists can cut in style and power as the metal casing transforms this clipper into a must-have with a lengthy battery life of 90 minutes. 

While the look of the Metal Edition Cordless Magic Clip is all vintage, the technology is anything but. Using advanced “crunch blade” technology thanks to its staggered-tooth blade, rotary motor, and linear-cutting system the clipper’s blades can move parallel to one another. This helps barbers cut faster and creates smoother blends, allowing them to remove hair in bulk and create texture, especially when fading. 

Wahl Education and Artistic Team member Kevin Nguyen (@yakuzabarber) sees the release of this new tool as a continuation of the company’s entrepreneurial spirit. “Wahl’s audience will always grow because our products have continued to fulfill the needs of barbers and stylists for generations. There is a reason why Wahl has been in business for 100 years and counting. Innovation is what the company is all about.”

Wahl Professional is releasing the Metal Edition Cordless Magic Clip for a limited time only. The clipper retails at $179 and can be found at wahlpro.com. Wahl’s Senior Marketing Associate Aaron Flick believes this special release will be big for the company. “The vintage look in barbering is very popular right now. It transports barbers back in time, and that was our goal with this limited time only release. As a collective, we wanted to continue our celebration of Wahl’s 100 years of being a top clipper manufacturer.”
