WAHL PROFESSIONAL AND DISNEY & PIXAR TO PROMOTE NEW MOVIE, SOUL
February 14, 2021
Wahl Clipper Corporation and Disney Pixar are partnering to promote its new movie, “Soul,” which debuts on Disney+ December 25th. The movie focuses on the importance of finding oneself and supporting one’s community and includes pivotal scenes with the main character, his trusted barber, and the barbershop community, which serves as the backbone of the neighborhood. The movie shows that the barbershop may 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.
To help promote “Soul,” Wahl Professional has created a limited-edition clipper with a commemorative “Soul”-branded design and package. 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 partner with Disney Pixar on the launch of “Soul.” 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.” Wahl Professional and Disney Pixar are proud to come together and promote “Soul” and help everyone find their spark.
