Wahl and Conair are companies that cater to consumers looking for hair-cutting kits, personal trimmers and ladies trimmers. Each company offers an extensive line of products in all three areas, with some of their offerings in a category amounting to more than 20 products. Both companies have also branched out into ethnic hair care and several non-trimming products, including hair dryers.

Hair Cutting Kits

Wahl and Conair each offer many different models of hair cutting kits. Wahl offers 22 different hair cutting kits. Some of the notable offerings include a 30-piece Home Barber Kit that comes with a hair clipper, a personal clipper and a cordless trimmer, and two models called “The Complete Hair Cutting Guide for Dummies,” modeled after the “Dummies” series of books. It comes with a “Dummies” guide to haircutting.

Conair offers 19 different hair cutting kits, including a model specially made for ethnic hair. Their top model is a 32-piece Combo Deluxe Hair Cutting Kit that has 10 attachment combs, nose and ear attachments and a deluxe leather storage case.

Facial Trimmers

Wahl offers personal trimmers specially tailored for different styles of facial hair, including moustache, beard and goatee. Wahl also has special trimmers for nose, ear and body hair. Wahl also makes what they bill as the “world’s first grooming device with Lithium Ion technology.” The lightweight trimmer has a long-lasting battery, a dual shaver, and 12 guide combs for facial hair, ear, nose and eyebrow hair, and the neckline. Conair has 22 different trimmers, including 18 specialty trimmers for beards and moustaches, and four ear and nose trimmers. Their top model is the Infiniti, a cordless trimmer with three blades and a mechanism that adjusts power output for the thickness of hair.

Ladies Trimmers

Wahl offers three trimming models for ladies, including the Micro Finish Wet/Dry Hair Remover, which can be used in the shower. It can trim the neckline, the eyebrows, the nose and the ear with tugging or pulling. Conair has seven trimmers tailored for women, including its Infiniti model, which has a 360-degree swivel head and a four-stage cutting system designed to eliminate cuts and nicks. It can be used in a wet or dry environment.

Ethnic Hair

Wahl has an extensive line of hair-cutting kits and trimmers for ethnic hair. There are three hair cutting models, all designed to provide tight, close cuts. The Balder features zero overlap blades for what Wahl bills as its line’s “tightest, closest cuts.” Wahl also features five ethnic beard and facial hair trimmers. Conair has just one ethnic hair cutting kit, a 17-piece kit with nine attachment combs and special deep-cut blades for a close trim.

Other Hair Care Products

Wahl and Conair offer other hair care products. Wahl offers a hair dryer and a hair straightener, each of which are sold separately. Conair offers nearly 100 different brands of hair dryers, including compact and styler models. Conair also offers hair styling irons, hot rollers and hair setters.
