– Number-one selling clipper on the market evolves to meet growing demand for cord-free operation –

STERLING, Ill. (March 5, 2016) – Home haircutters will be happy to know that the most popular hair clipper on the market now comes with no strings, or in this case, cords, attached. For years, Wahl’s Color Pro Clipper has been making haircutting easier for families thanks to the product’s color-coded guide combs. Now, Wahl, the market leader is making home haircutting even easier by offering the flexibility to cut where and when it’s most convenient.

“As more people take advantage of cutting their hair at home, the more freedom they want to cut anywhere in or outside the house,” said Steve Yde, division vice president of marketing for Wahl. “Convenience is king, and with the new and improved Color Pro Clipper, we’re taking it to a whole new level.”

Designed with families in mind, the new Wahl Color Pro Cord/Cordless Clipper features color-coded guide combs that make it easy to remember everyone's favorite hair length and color coded keys that make it easy to use the right comb with the right setting. The clipper body includes a soft-touch grip for comfort and control while preforming haircuts.

For added convenience, the new Color Pro model features a powerful motor along with a rechargeable battery that provides up to 60 minutes of run time on one charge. And because it is cord/cordless, users can simply plug the clipper in before or during use to ensure continued operation, even if battery runs out. In addition, the Color Pro Cord/Cordless Clipper offers dual voltage for domestic and International usage, making it ideal for travel.

Smooth and consistent performance comes courtesy of Wahl’s self-sharpening precision-ground blades that stay sharp longer and easily cut the thickest hair without snagging or pulling. The blades are also removable for easy cleaning.

The Wahl Color Pro Cord/Cordless Clipper kit includes a durable storage case, detail trimmer, cord, 12 guide combs, two combs, scissors and style guide. It will be available to retailers and consumers in July 2016 with an MSRP of $34.99. More information on Wahl clippers and other grooming tools can be found at www.wahlgrooming.com.
