Hair Clippers

The hair clipper was the first electrical haircare appliance designed for use by men rather than women. Leo J. Wahl invented the first practical electric hair clipper in 1919 and set up the Wahl Clipper Corporation in Sterling, Illinois. The hair clipper basically consists of an electrically driven blade with a comb guide, and the design has changed little since its introduction. Today’s hair clippers are supplied with a range of combs for different trimming grades and are also available as cordless models with rechargeable batteries.
