VS Sassoon Goes Pro with Wallaby Tatafu

Judging from the Spring/Summer 2014/15 Men’s runway show’s in Europe and America, the beard isn’t going away anytime soon so here at Rogue Homme we’re always on the lookout for gadgets to help with that necessary beard maintenance and our search took us to VS Sassoon for men


Last year VS for Men launched their Ultimate Grooming Range –  THE VS FOR MEN LITHIUM PRO SERIESThis year they’ve gone one step further  by teaming up with the a beast of a man  – WARATAH WALLABY LEGEND TATAFU POLOTA-NAU.

The most damaging front rower of all time, he’s toned down his fro and trimmed his mo for a sharper look using the Lithium Pro range. And the results speak for themselves. “I love the VS for Men Lithium Pro range,” said Tatafu. “It’s got the POWER, PRECISON AND PERFOMANCE to deliver. It really does separate the men from the boys.”

With a lifetime dedicated to crushing the will of others, this rugby great has had little time for grooming … until now. Yes, the Tatafu beast has been TRANSFORMED and here’s HOW he did IT:Tatafu used the VS for Men i-PROTM Intensive to craft a stylish on-trend hair cut worthy of a ROAR! He did it by harnessing the POWER of the Intensive’s heavy-duty 4.0V DC motor. With 3x more cutting power than a regular magnetic motor for an ultra powerful cut, it gave Tatafu the ultimate salon-even haircut quickly and easily and very commandingly.PRECISION – XL Professional Performance Blades made from especially hardened Japanese steel for ultra smooth effortless cutting helped him finish the job. According to Tatafu: “NOTHING touches these blades for accuracy and ferocity.”PERFORMANCE – Tatafu achieved a 100% evenly finished haircut in
ONE stroke. And the Clipper (which can be used on mains power or
cordless for total convenience and control) gave Tatafu sustained power performance (even at lower charge levels thanks to its lithium-ion technology). A 75-minute run time and quick charge allowed him maximum autonomy and potency.

TATAFU then used the VS for Men Lithium PRO Face & Body Trimmer to SMOOTH his ROUGHER edges.

And he went to work quickly! This Trimmer’s High Performance Powerful DC Motor with ultra powerful cutting action plus W-Tech Blades (with innovative moving blade geometry for increased durability and precision) meant he achieved a smooth and accurate finish ALL OVER in NO TIME. Its Cord/Cordless function with


Lithium-ion Technology also meant he enjoyed sustained power performance for reliable cordless use, even at lower charge levels. Two hours gave him full charge for 80 minutes use. Even a 30 minute quick charge ensured him 20 minutes grooming power! Five Interchangeable Heads including a 32mm trimmer, mini foil shaver, body shaver, nose trimmer and 7mm detailed trimmer also sealed the deal for the NEW-LOOK Tatafu as did its Multi-voltage feature – perfect for travel. Tatafu now takes styling power on tour!
