WAHL - 100 Years In The Making

WAHL - 100 Years In The Making

When Leo Wahl invented the first electric hair clipper in 1919, he didn’t just revolutionise an industry. He created one.

What started as one man’s brilliant, innovative idea in America’s heartland is now the worldwide standard for professional animal groomers.

It has been a journey shared with our loyal customers as we celebrate our 100th year. When you pick up a Wahl product, you can be confident that 100 years of professional heritage is in the palm of your hand.

After the first electric magnetic clipper for barbers was invented, shortly after this our attention turned to animal clippers. In 1961, Wahl introduced its first pet clipper, Clip – Pet, a practical way for pet owners to groom their furry family members at home. Since then, Wahl’s dedication to developing products and delivering education to professionals in the grooming industry has only grown.
