Wahl is one of the leaders in men’s grooming supplies and have a great line of products for men. They sent me a Lithium Ion trimmer to try and some great information on fathers and sons to share with all of you.
Since Father’s Day was this past weekend, it’s the perfect time to think about what really brings dads together with their kids. In our family, we have two boys. It’s funny how at only 4 years old, my oldest son has already asked his “Pop” (that’s what we call the dad in our house) all about shaving. I had never really thought about what a traditional rite of passage grooming seems to be for boys. Wahl, a leader in the men’s grooming category actually conducted a study about boys first learning to groom. Did you know that 8 in 10 boys recall learning to groom from their father as a meaningful experience and plan to carry it on? This is definitely one tradition that is not going anywhere anytime soon.
My husband agreed to try out the Lithium Ion Trimmer to see how well it worked from a dad’s point of view. We both noticed the sleek look of the trimmer. It also has smart charge capabilities. That means, once plugged in, the Wahl Lithium Trimmer charges in just one hour and then shuts down to protect the battery from overcharging. Once you are using it, you get a four hour run time which is a lot longer than most other trimmers on the market.I personally loved how the trimmer came with its own little carrying case and how the attachments changed out pretty easily.
Here is a before and after shot of a neck touch up using the Wahl Lithium Ion Trimmer.
The biggest thing to remember is that this is a trimmer, not a razor. It is perfect for small detailing, touch ups in between haircuts, and to even out sideburns. For regular shaving and other grooming needs check out Wahl’s website for other products.
