About Wahl Trimmers

A quarter-century ago, Wahl recognized the desire for well kept facial hair and created the trimmer category. The Wahl Groomsman was the world's first battery operated facial hair trimmer, and featured the same type of blade quality that defined Wahl clippers. And for the past 25+ years, that innovation has continued, developing trimmers for specific facial hair styles -- beard, goatee and mustache -- and other variations including ear/nose, body grooming and all-in-one. Wahl introduced the first trimmer to harness the next generation of lithium ion power that continues a legacy of superior trimming innovation.
