“Since I have received my pair of GV-55 styling shears, I have fallen in love with them. I’ve never gotten to use a pair of Swivel Shears before and the marked difference in decreased strain on my hand was a NICE surprise! Not only are they sharp, but they have a nice feel to them, not too heavy, and not too light. If you are looking for a nice pair of shears that won’t set you back an arm and a leg GET YOURSELF A PAIR OF SHIRO SHEARS!”

Every Stylist is an artist. There’s no doubting it. Styling Hair is an art form and Hair Shears are the paintbrush. Most professional hair stylists make a significant investment in the hair shears they use every day. It is an investment in yourself as an artist, and an investment in yourself as a professional.
Your clients are the canvas, In case you were wondering?
Where did you get your hair shears?
If you got your shears from your cosmetology school, chances are that the hair shears are not going to last long. These scissors were meant to be used during school while you are learning. If you have not replaced your beauty school hair scissors yet, then you have waited too long. It is common practice in the Beauty Industry for Salon Professionals to attend yearly Beauty Shows. You buy a ticket to attend the events that take place there. The chance to rub elbows with other professionals and celebrity hairstylists is a fantastic opportunity. There can be many reasons to attend, and they are all good for the enhancement of your career. But if you were one of the salon professionals that bought your shears at the beauty show, you may not have gotten the best deal.
How much should I pay for my Hair Shears?
If you bought your Hair Scissors at the Beauty Show. You probably paid a pretty penny for them. If your shears cost you over $1,000 then you definitely paid too much. Many companies spend a lot of money to put on a big production and have a lot of people working in order to attract a crowd. The truth is that it is unnecessary to pay that much for one pair of hair shears. On the other extreme is the many companies selling shears for about $100 a piece. Chances are those shears will not last in the long run. Look for a price point somewhere inbetween and a company you can trust like Shiro Shears. If you can get a 30-Day Return Policy and a Lifetime Warranty like Shiro does, you can have peace of mind that you are buying a pair of hair shears that you can count on for many years. There are even payment plans available to make it easy to afford the best shears for you.
Taking Care of your Hair Shears:
Keeping your hair shears clean and well maintained will prolong the life of sharp edges and the overall life of your hair scissors. Scissors are worn by general usage, hair, dust/dirt, chemicals and other intentional or inadvertent contact with the blade edges. Continued use of dull, dirty, or damaged shears will speed the deterioration of your shears.
1. Clean, dry, and lubricate your shears at the end of each work day.
2. Check your shears for adjustment (tension), at least once each day.
3. Check for nicks or other damage if dropped. If you see damage, set aside and call your Shiro Shears Distributor, or contact email@example.com. Continuing to cut with scissors that have been nicked will cause additional damage.
4. Check your shears for sharpness at least once each month. See “Testing for Sharpness”, below.
5. Handle your shears with gentle care. Protect the edges from everything except clean hair.
6. Store and transport your shears in the case they came in, or buy a good quality leather pouch for protection.
1. Don’t use your hair shears when out of balance (adjustment) or nicked from dropping.
2. Don’t store your shears when dirty.
3. Don’t “throw” your shears in a drawer when not in use.
4. Don’t lend your shears to anyone.
5. Don’t “pressure cut” (torque the blades together.) This means squeezing harder with your thumb when the shears start to get dull.
6. Don’t let your shears come into contact with any comb sterilization, perm or color solution; it may cause corrosion and other damage to your shears.
Thoroughly clean your shears with warm, soapy water and dry with a clean, soft towel. Be careful not to cut yourself with the sharp edges. Make certain your shears are thoroughly dry between the blades.
After cleaning and drying your shears, carefully open to a 90-degree angle. Put one or two drops of top quality hair scissors lubricant into the “joint”. It assists the cleaning process by washing out dirt and debris from under the pivot and leaves a wax-like coating. It is best not to use oil, as it attracts dust, lint, and hair. (Do not use lubricant on your clippers; they do require oil.)
Adjusting Tension (Balancing):
Adjusting tension is an important part of getting the best results from your shears. To check the tension on your shears, lift the blade handle to a 90-degree angle and let it fall. Your shears should close approximately two thirds of the way. If it falls completely closed, the tension is too loose, and the scissorswill fold the hair. If it is too tight, it will cause unnecessary wear and user fatigue. Your shears can have a variety of tension adjustment methods. The most common are listed below:
1. A precision flat screw holding the shears together which can be loosened or tightened with a screw driver or a coin placed in the groove on the top of the screw. Turn right to tighten and left to loosen.
2. A tension adjustable nut which can be loosened or tightened by turning with your thumb and finger.
3. Other, more expensive, shearsmay require a specialized key.
Testing for Sharpness:
A dull pair of shearswill begin “crunching” the hair; progress to pushing the hair away as you are trying to cut; and finally, pulling the hair. Do not make the mistake of waiting too long to have your shears sharpened. Cutting with dull shears can cause split ends for your client and hinder you from providing the professional cut you intend.
Begin the testing process by spraying a section of Sanek®-strip with water. Get it completely wet. This will emulate wet hair and allow you to see graphically what your shears are doing as you cut hair. Gently make a full blade cut through the wet Sanek®-strip. Make sure you are not torquing the blades. If your shears are sharp, they will make a clean cut the full length of the blade.
When beginning to dull, they will cut part-way and then fold a portion of the Sanek®-strip. The cut portion may appear “feathered” rather than crisply cut. If they are very dull, they will simply bend the Sanek®-strip without cutting.
We recommend you have your shears sharpened every 600-700 haircuts. This is about every 3-4 months. This will assure that you are always using sharp tools. (Poor quality shears will need sharpening more often, as will shears in a very busy “cuts only” salon.) Yourshears will actually last longer if they are sharpened regularly.

Hair Cutting Shears are defined by their composition, sleek look, and variety of models to choose from. There are now a wide range of shears for anyone from cosmetology students to seasoned professionals. Hair Shears can be made to fit the smallest hands, as well as the largest barbers fingers. You can customize the fit by inserting finger ring sizers, choosing shears with an ergonomically shaped handle, or by choosing the shears that are the correct length for your hands.
There are also different types of Hair Cutting Shears for different cutting techniques. Maybe you are doing some trimming around the ears or some point-cutting, you should probably be using a shorter pair of shears. You don’t need a long blade to do this type of cutting. You should have a pair of 5 inch shears for that. Lets say you are a barber, and you are doing some scissor over comb work to even out the top. For this type of cutting, you are going to need a longer pair of shears to get the job done more efficiently and cut down on fatigue. You should have a 6.5 inch shear for this. The longer blade is essential for even cutting, and will cut the time you spend on each client down to a minimum. All hair stylists know, the faster you get the client out of your chair, the more clients you will see in a day. More clients means more money. More clients also means happier clients, because they can get a fabulous haircut and style in a minimal amount of time.
Efficiency is a big part of the game when it comes to cutting hair. By owning the correct hair cutting shears for each type of cut you are doing, you will be more efficient and a happier hairdresser. How many different pairs of hair cutting shears do you have? As a minimum, we recommend having 3 different styling shears, as well as two pair of texturizing/thinning shears.
A Scissor Story:
Searching far and wide for the top of the line hair scissors is one of the top challenges a hair stylist faces in today’s workplace. Usually you start out in beauty college with a cheap pair of hair scissors. The beauty school, especially chain schools like PMTS, will tell you that they can supply you with all the tools you need to move forward with your career in hairdressing. They give you some shears that are decent enough to get you through beauty school. But how long can you keep using these shears? Are they meant to Last Forever? Of course not!
By the time you graduate from cosmetology school, you have been using your shears quite a bit. Chances are you haven’t ever had them sharpened, and most likely the school didn’t teach you how to maintain your shears. To a hairdresser, hair shears are the most important tool. Not your hairdryer, your combs and brushes, or even the chair your clients sit in. Many hair stylists overlook this aspect of their job. How is a stylist supposed to give a client the best haircut if the shears being used are not maintained properly? Did you know that over 90% of Split-Ends are caused by dull shears?
As a hair stylist, don’t you owe it to yourself and your clients to use the best tools possible? If you are still using your shears from beauty school, do yourself a favor and buy new shears today! Your clients will thank you and your job will be easier too. Hair scissors should be your first purchase when you begin working at a Hair Salon after beauty school. Did you know that auto mechanics spend over $20,000 on their tools? They have no choice because without the proper tools to perform their job to their best ability, they would not even have a job to start with. Hairdressers need to take this into consideration when working on hair. Your hair shears should be looked at as an investment in yourself and your career.

SCISSOR RECONDITIONING WILL RESTORE YOUR HAIR SHEARS. SOMETIMES HAIR SHEARS REQUIRE ADDED CARE DUE TO: IMPROPER SHARPENING, EXCESS WEAR, AND RUST.
Some sharpeners sharpen at the wrong angle destroying the convex edge which decreases the efficiency of your hair shear. We are able to fix this problem for you by re-convexing your hair shears to make the scissors like new.
When a shear becomes worn, it needs re-convexing to increase the function of the shear.
To avoid rust, keep your hair shears away from hair chemicals. Letting chemicals set on any part of your shears will pit the surface, even stainless steel can be corroded by strong chemicals. Be sure to rinse any chemical solutions from your shears immediately. Also keep them dry and clean.
INCLUDED: If needed, we will replace the Finger Rest or Tang, Finger Rings, Washers, and Bumper. NOTE: We have parts for most makes of professional hair cutting shears.
Japanese Shears are the most popular type of hair shears. When compared to other types of hair scissors, japanese hair shears are by far the best type of hair cutting shears. Modeled after the Japanese art of sword making, Japanese shears are designed with the best type of stainless steel. Japanese cutting shears are razor sharp. The Japanese shears scissors steel alloy is built to hold an excellent cutting edge for a prolonged period of time. Japanese scissors can be designed with many different handle shapes. The most important part of Japanese styling shears is the convex edge. This razor edge is designed to slide through the hair without grabbing or pushing the hair. Japanese shears’ convex edge is a rounded type edge, opposite a concave edge. This precision edge gives the Japanese shears the ability to cut smoothly. Most cheaper and older shears are made with a beveled edge, which is a set angle and has no convex shape. The convex edge is far superior and guaranteed to last longer.
