NAHA Winner Jamie DiGrazia Joins Wahl Professional as Retail & Business Educator

Expert stylist and winner of 2018 NAHA Men’s Stylist of the Year award Jamie DiGrazia is joining Wahl Professional as its new Retail and Business Educator. DiGrazia, who owns Logan Parlor in Chicago, will use her expertise and passion to teach barbers and stylists how to use the Wahl 1919 styling and finishing line to enhance their cuts and increase their revenue. In addition, purchase of the products will provide scholarships to the next generation of barbers and stylists through the company’s Fade It Forward™ program.

DiGrazia can attest to the growth that selling retail has brought to her business, and views the 1919 products as an important way for barbers to increase their revenue by showing clients how to create salon fresh looks at home.

“There are two ways to earn money in this industry – service and retail. Through educating your guests, you can have a whole other part of your business that can be flourishing,” says DiGrazia. “To have a long, successful career, I think business education is what is going to take someone to the next level. And that comes from selling retail, having product knowledge, and business education.”

DiGrazia will support the 1919 line by both educating barbers on stylists on how to use the products, and how to sell them. Her goal is not only to help educate barbers behind the chair, but also to educate their clients on how to use the professional products at home.

As part of a bigger initiative in the shape of Wahl Professional’s philanthropic program, Fade It Forward™, DiGrazia is also supporting the next generation of barbers as a portion of the purchase of each 1919 product will go toward barber school scholarships for youth in need. Fade It Forward™ began in 2018 and is designed to help young people in underprivileged areas achieve their dream of becoming barbers. The program is currently active in Chicago and St. Louis, with plans to expand to Cleveland and beyond in 2021.

“When I explain how the Wahl 1919 styling and finishing line helps young people become barbers and helps them get into an industry I love so much, well that’s really impactful. People care about that. People want to help other people. Barbers and stylists can understand that, and so can clients,” says DiGrazia.

For barbers and stylists interested in getting their hands on the Wahl 1919 styling and finishing products, a discounted introductory kit of all 11 products is available through Wahl Professional at To apply to become a Wahl 1919 reseller and carry Wahl 1919 products in your shop and receive access to business and retail education, go to

Barbershops given go ahead to reopen 4th July

Boris Johnson has today announced the next easing of restrictions in England, which will take effect from Saturday 4th July.

With the UK’s COVID Alert level now reduced from 4 to 3, the Prime Minister has announced that although all steps are conditional, where it is not possible to stay 2 metres apart, 1 metre or more should be observed.

We welcome the news that barbers and hairdressers will also be able to reopen from the 4th July, with appropriate precautions in place, including the use of visors.

After a long, difficult wait, as of next Saturday, barbershops will be able to reopen their doors and welcome clients back to the chair. The Prime Minister said he will publish COVID secure guidelines for all sectors that are able to reopen.

While no further guidelines have yet been published regarding best practice, we expect to receive these in the coming days and will keep you up to date as and when we receive them.

Visit for full details on today’s announcement.

Please note, this announcement covers barbershops in England and does not apply to shops in Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

The iconic tool barbers and professional stylists have been asking for is officially back and permanently here to stay. When first released in 2018, the Cordless Senior was greatly sought after, but the clipper was only available for a limited time. Now back by popular demand, this heavy-duty tool is designed to have strong cutting power to be able to handle on-scalp fading, clipper-over-comb, and bulk hair removal.

“The Cordless Senior is something you always wished for as a barber but would never believe could happen in a million years,” says Wahl Education and Artistic Team member Garland “G-Whiz” Fox (@thisisgwhiz). “And here it is, the Cordless Senior, the most powerful Wahl cordless clipper hands down.”

The Cordless Senior has a lithium-ion battery that gives the tool a 70+ minute run-time before needing another charge. This clipper comes in a sleek black and gold casing that allows barbers to cut in style while delivering on all the power. The tool comes with three Premium Cutting Guides (1/16” – 3/16”) and with a 5 Star surgical fade blade that allows a higher blade speed. Although lightweight, this iconic clipper has a powerful motor that places it at the forefront of haircutting technology.

“I believe this clipper will continue to be a favorite of our long-time Wahl fans and will attract a new fan base looking for a lot of power in a cordless option,” says Anne Marie Kollias, Wahl Professional’s U.S. Director of Sales and Marketing.

The Cordless Senior retails at $159 and can be found at for more information
