The company’s new PowerPro Groomer is the latest in multi-purpose grooming, a hybrid-style trimmer designed to cut hair, trim facial hair and do the detail work. Unlike other multi-purpose grooming tools that do some things well but not all, Wahl’s no-compromise design addresses the category’s largest segment by providing optimum performance for each task.  

Multi-purpose grooming devices represent the lion’s share of the trimmers’ category, about one in three products sold, according to NPD Group. Wahl estimates that approximately 30 percent of guys nationwide currently own a multi-purpose grooming device and another 20 percent use a hair clippers or facial hair trimmers for multi-purpose grooming. The bottom line—Wahl’s new PowerPro Groomer appeals to a large and growing segment of guys seeking grooming versatility.

“Many guys today are expanding their grooming routine to include cutting hair, trimming facial hair, detail trimming and even bodywork,” said Steve Yde, marketing director for Wahl. Unfortunately, those looking for an all-in-one solution have relied on tools designed for only one task. PowerPro is the first compact grooming tool designed with the power and performance characteristics to do each task equally well.”

To deliver a consistently smooth and powerful experience for each grooming task, the new PowerPro Groomer features Wahl’s high-speed PowerDrive™ technology.
