Our Story

In 1937, Remington unveiled the first electric shaver, effectively changing the future landscape of shaving for men and women. Eighty years on and Remington continues to innovate, creating world firsts. In fact, it’s been said that many categories in electrical grooming, hair and skin care wouldn’t exist without us.

Remington has been there through every era. From Old Hollywood glamour and the swinging sixties to 70’s disco, punk rock and 90’s pop, we’ve been helping you to reinvent, create and define your style. And we’re still innovating to this day.
