Hair Straighteners

Whether it’s straight hair, beach waves or bouncy curls, a styling tool your salon can not be without is hair straighteners!

Brushes and Combs

Brushes and combs are an important element of your styling tool kit! There is a brush or comb for every need including untangling, sectioning, adding volume, styling and much more!

Top picks from Wahl: The Wahl Fade Brush is designed to clearly define fade work, without hair sticking to the scalp. The soft but firm bristles remove cut hair to help identify any imperfections. It is the ideal brush for intricate clipper fade cuts with a classic tear-drop shaped handle for comfortable use and maximum control.
In addition to the Fade Brush, why not treat your kit to the Wahl Speed Comb. It is perfect for creating flat tops, tapering, and clipper over comb techniques. This comb eliminates cross-cutting, has a clipper over comb guide as well as a textured thumb grip for easy rotation.
It is also important as a barber or hairdresser to keep your professional appearance groomed on the go. Our Wahl Pocket Comb is the perfect pocket-sized companion to keep your hair and/or beard tidy. Crafted in a shave razor design, this comb is always on hand to tame unruly hair as it can be clipped on to your keys or belt loop!
