Wahl’s new vacuum trimmer looks to reduce the mess

By David Salazar - 01/30/2019
Wahl’s latest innovation is looking to keep the hair trimming mess to a minimum. The Sterling, Ill.-based company has introduced the Wahl Lithium Ion Vacuum Trimmer.

The vacuum trimmer features an adjustable vacuum intake that allows users to control the amount of suction, as well as anti-choke exhaust ports on the front and back. It also has a hair canister than can be either popped open or completely removed to be emptied. Wahl’s vacuum trimmer has a lithium ion battery that offers a 90-minute run time, self-sharpening blades, an LED charge indicator, nine guide combs, and the option of cordless or corded use.

Wahl officials said the product was informed not just by what men using the trimmers need, but by what their partners would like as well — namely, a clean bathroom.

"Knowing what men want from their trimmer is a priority, but we also dig deeper to find out what the women who live with bearded men think," said Steven Yde, division vice president at Wahl. "Not surprisingly, mess-free trimming is high on their wish list. With this in mind, we think our new vacuum trimmer will make everyone happy."

Wahl accompanied the launch by highlighting the results of a recent survey from ORC International, which found that 58% of women said they prefer a man with facial hair. Seventy-one percent of millennial women said they preferred facial hair. Preference-wise, stubble topped the list, followed by a well-groomed beard.

The Wahl Lithium Ion Vacuum Trimmer has a suggested retail price of $59.99 and is available at select retailers nationwide or WahlUSA.com.
