Express your style with the ultimate male grooming tool

Auckland, New Zealand – The world of male grooming has moved on with over 50% of men today styling and shaving their facial hair.[1] In response to this demand, Philips has launched the ultimate male grooming tool, the Styleshaver, which enables men to express their individual style through trimming, styling and shaving their facial hair using one device.

The launch of the Styleshaver QS6140 is part of Philips’ Express Yourself Every Day campaign, which recognises and celebrates the trend towards men seizing opportunities for self-expression.

Although over half of men globally are experimenting with their facial hair styles as part of their self expression, many are relying on a range of ineffective tools to get the job done. Currently, most men use a blade and low-end trimmer, and some even use scissors to trim their beards. This lack of choice puts some men off experimenting with their facial hair as they are not able to achieve a sharp style.

“As a complete facial styling solution, Philips’ Styleshaver enables men to create any facial style quickly and easily, without the need to rely on a multitude of different tools,” says Nick Perry of Philips Consumer Lifestyle.

Philips’ Styleshaver comes with a full size trimmer and precision trimmer on one side and a shaver on the other. The full size trimmer has length settings varying from 0.5mm to 10mm, enabling men to get the exact facial hair length they want. The precision trimmer delivers a close cut and the neck holding the trimmer is designed to provide excellent visibility. The trimmer can also be flipped upside down for a dual foil shaver which can be used to create straight lines around any style, or achieve a clean shave, even after three days of beard growth.

For added convenience, the Philips Styleshaver is fully waterproof, so that it can be easily cleaned under a tap, and has a Lithium Ion battery which delivers cordless operation for up to 50 minutes.

In addition to the Styleshaver, Philips is launching two new models in the AquaTouch and SensoTouch 3D ranges. The new Philips AquaTouch AT940, which can be used wet with gel or foam, has a longer rechargeable shave time of 60 minutes and larger blades for an even faster, closer shave. The new Philips SensoTouch 3D RQ1285 wet and dry electric shaver comes with a click-on Beard Styler with five length settings.

The Styleshaver and other Philips electric shavers are available at all leading retailers. For more information about Philips’ shaving and grooming products, visit www.philips.co.nz.
