Wahl Global Headquarters Museum

Sterling , IL

100 years: a time to look back in order to move forward.

Wahl Professional celebrates their upcoming 100-year anniversary by opening the doors to their history and timeless style in the new Wahl museum. The Wahl Global Headquarters Museum opened in May 2016, in advance of the company’s “2019” milestone, with a special look at Wahl’s history and roots in the beauty and barbering industry. Recent office upgrades prompted the Wahl team to showcase their journey as the leading clipper and trimmer manufacturer, along with the path Wahl is paving for the future. “Now that we are approaching our 100-year anniversary and built a new addition to our offices, we thought it was time to properly display and organize our past,” says Lance Wahl, Global Vice President Professional Products, Wahl Clipper Corporation. The vintage-inspired, classically styled museum pays homage to the rich history of barbering and how Wahl has helped shape it. “Since Wahl created the clipper category, it’s important to show proper credence to the very beginning and what the initial innovation has accomplished,” says Wahl. “The museum also highlights all the products we have created outside of clippers and trimmers. The exhibits remind us of all the experiments we at Wahl have tried and motivate us to go further.” Wahl Global Headquarters Museum pays homage to the rich history of barbering and how Wahl has helped shape it.
