The Difference in The Workmanship

This might be the most obvious thing to look out for when comparing a pair of cheap and expensive cutters. You will be able to tell the difference in quality between cheap scissors that are usually machine made, and expensive shears which are carefully hand-crafted by professionals. Poorly designed tools will not only require more effort when cutting hair but can also be difficult to hone.

We understand the impact of poorly crafted cutters and aim to avoid this by creating shears that are made with the highest quality Japanese stainless-steel, which allows for smoother and more precise haircuts. Whether you’re looking for traditional cutters, texturizing scissors or thinner scissors, we have you covered!

Your Scissors Are Here to Stay

We all know that a hairdresser’s best friend is a pair of great quality shears because scissors are used for almost every hair appointment. With such constant usage, cheaply made cutters are bound to breakdown much more quickly due to its poor material.

In fact, you would probably end up spending more on cheap cutters than you would for a good-quality pair of shears that will last you for many years. Worried about forking out your hard-earned money for an expensive pair of shears that may not be the best quality? All our scissors meet the highest standards for hairdressing tools so you can rest assured knowing that you can rely on it for years to come!
