What’s Old Is New (and Improved) Again: Wahl Professional 5-Star Retro T-Cut Cordless Trimmer

As one of the most recognizable faces of the Wahl Education and Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.), advice from Garland “G-Whiz” Fox carries a distinguished amount of cachet.

And based on his reaction to the latest Wahl tool, barbers and stylists are going to want to pay close attention to his tips on how to use the 5-Star Retro T-Cut Trimmer, which Fox had the honor of demonstrating at the Bronner Bros International Beauty Show in Atlanta over the summer.

I’m like a kid in a candy store whenever I get to use something new,” said Fox. “I noticed right away how immaculate the Retro T-Cut is on tight hairlines, trims, shaves, clean-ups. Not every trimmer is all-in-one like this.

The Retro T-Cut is the latest breakthrough in the esteemed 5-Star line, taking its cue from the 30+ year history of Wahl’s mainstay 8900 Rechargeable Trimmer, while adding to it in promising ways beyond a very appealing facelift to the appearance itself.

With the increased popularity of our 5-Star Brand, we received lots of requests for a powerful cordless trimmer that drives the t-wide blade,” said Lance Wahl, Global Vice President Professional Products, Wahl Clipper Corporation. “We value the input of professionals who use our products every day and feel a great sense of duty and pride to deliver what they want.

The cost efficient, cordless, T-blade trimmer has everything the busy barber needs: a more powerful motor, adjustable blades with zero-overlap precision, 3 trimming guides (1/16”- 3/16”), a longer-lasting rechargeable battery and charging stand, plus more. “You can use the Retro T-Cut on every hair type,” said Fox. “It makes super sharp lines and extra crispy fades. The wider blade covers more hair in fewer passes for faster cuts.”


Wahl Ambassadors were the first to receive details on the official release of the Retro T-Cut. Those who follow Wahl Professional on social media will receive updates throughout the month. The Retro T-Cut Trimmer will be available in January 2018.

This is one of our most ergonomic designs yet,” said Aaron Flick, Senior Marketing Associate Professional Products, Wahl Clipper Corporation. “You can feel the power of the motor as soon as you turn it on. We think barbers and stylists will appreciate the level of precision they can use in lining and detailing.”
