Wahl began after Leo J. Wahl invented the first vibrating electromagnetic motor in Sterling, Illinois. Utterly ground-breaking, this led to the first medical massager, which was then widely sold to and used in barbershops. Seeing this, Leo noticed a dire need for new and improved barber tools, and he went on to develop the first ever electric hair clipper in 1919. Industry-leading then and industry-leading now, Wahl has remained at the very forefront of grooming trends, boasting an entire arsenal of tools and formulas for everyone. In fact, with over 90% of professional barbers choosing Wahl, it comes as no surprise that Wahl blades are engineered with high precision grinding technology for the very best, cutting-edge performance – giving consistent sharpness and precise, even results every single time. With unquestionable and reliable quality, Wahl is a brand you can trust – drawing on over 100 years of experience and always pushing the boundaries of innovation.
