Wahl Trimmers and Movember Come Together Again This November
STERLING, Ill., Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — This fall, Wahl, a leading manufacturer of grooming products, traveled coast to coast to educate guys on facial hair maintenance and provide free facial hair trims on the Let It Grow Tour. Along the way, for every trim performed $1 was donated to Movember and its beneficiary sponsors, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. To continue supporting Movember, Wahl will donate an additional $10 to the cause for every Special Edition Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Kit with Movember bonus pack purchased now through January 21, 2011.* The special trimmer kit is available exclusively to Movember participants here.
“This is the second year we’ve partnered with Movember, and Wahl feels strongly about helping to do its part to change the face of men’s health,” said Steve Yde, senior product manager. “The movement is a phenomenal tool to get men talking about health issues that may affect them or their friends and family.”
Movember, the month formerly known as November, is the time when men grow a mustache for 30 days to raise funds and awareness for cancer affecting men. The Mo, slang for mustache, and November come together each year for Movember to challenge men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a mustache during November.
The rules are simple; start November 1 clean-shaven, then grow a mustache for the entire month. Encourage friends and family to support the cause and donate to the effort. The Mo becomes the ribbon for men’s health, allowing men across the globe to raise awareness and funds for cancer affecting men. To get started, click here.
The Special Edition Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Kit contains the first men’s grooming tool to harness the power of lithium ion – the most technologically advanced rechargeable battery available. With twice the voltage of equivalent sized Wahl single cell nickel metal hydride (NiMh) battery cell trimmers, the Lithium Ion trimmer is able to offer twice the torque, three times the runtime, a one minute quick charge for over three minutes of use and one hour for a full charge – helping deliver a close, clean and efficient ‘stache trim.
Participants looking to get your facial hair prepped for Movember should visit WahlNation.com. The site offers the opportunity to ask questions to Wahl’s facial hair experts on how to get started growing a mustache, explore a bevy of mustache styles in the Encyclopedia of Styles and read all things facial hair at the Experts & Gentleman blog.
*The $10 donation only applies to Special Edition Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Kit with Bonus Pack #9854-600V available here. In addition to the Lithium Ion Grooming Kit, it includes a Changing the Face of Men’s Health wrist band, 2 lapel buttons and mustache stick-ons.
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 plus 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. Most recently, Wahl introduced the first trimmer to harness the power of lithium ion that continues a legacy of superior trimming innovation.
Now in its 91st year, Wahl Clipper Corporation is an international industry leader in the manufacturing of products for the professional beauty and barber salon trade, consumer personal care and animal grooming.
