Wahl Professional has partnered with the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) to support barbers and stylists who are out of work due to COVID-19. Throughout May, 50% of the purchase price of any 1919 by Wahl Professional men’s grooming line product will be donated to the PBA COVID-19 Relief Fund when customers go to the Wahl Professional website and use the code PBA at checkout.
“We know that these are hard times, and we’re glad we can partner with PBA to help further contribute to the COVID-19 Relief Fund,” says 1919 product manager, Allan Vodicka. “We know that others want to help, too, and this an easy way to do that. Every little bit—even the purchase of a tube of pomade or hair gel—can help a barber or stylist get through this difficult time.”
Wahl is no stranger to lending a helping hand to the industry during tough times. In addition to the 1919 donation opportunity, the company has also made a direct donation to the PBA COVID-19 Relief Fund. And in an effort to keep barbers and stylists learning and growing during this time, Wahl Professional has been providing free online education, taught by members of the Wahl Education and Artistic Team, each week on its social media sites. Information about when W.E.A.T. members are going live can be found on the Wahl’s Instagram (@wahlpro) and videos are housed on its Facebook page, allowing viewers the opportunity to re-watch the educational videos.
