Wahl Clipper Corporation is joining forces with Disney and Pixar to celebrate the new movie, “Soul,” streaming on Disney+ starting on December 25th. The movie highlights the importance of finding oneself and discovering what makes you, you. Through Joe Gardner’s journey to find the spark of life, he winds up leaning on his community to feel connected. In one pivotal scene, Joe visits his trusted barber to get the encouragement he needs and realizes the barbershop community–which serves as the backbone of the neighborhood—may not just be a place to get your hair cut, but it’s also a place of gathering, learning and a home-away-from-home.
“Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks, and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
Wahl Professional has created a limited-edition clipper with a commemorative “Soul”-branded design and package. The clipper will be available on Wahlpro.com starting December 17th. The tool is one of the clipper manufacturer’s iconic models – the Cordless Senior – which is equipped with a metal taper lever and switch, three premium cutting guides, and a fade blade designed for precision cutting. The clipper is priced at $159.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate the launch of “Soul” with Disney and Pixar. The movie’s themes of community, caring, and finding one’s spark will resonate with hair professionals, who consider their profession as a way to make a difference in someone’s life, not just a way to make a living,” says Lance Wahl, global vice president of professional products. “Barbers and stylists are at the heart of their communities, and at Wahl Clipper Corporation we’ve made it our life’s work to support them as well as the next generation of aspiring barbers and stylists.”
