Hairdressing Scissor sharpening
All scissors can be serviced and sharpened. After serving the Hair industry since 1997 we can give this guarantee
100% "Total satisfaction without question or your money back"
Regular servicing extends the life of your scissors, keeps them a joy to use and enables you to be creative and inspired by your work.
It is recommended that if you cut between six and eight clients with wet hair a day using Japanese/convex edged scissors, they should be serviced every six months. If you do the same numbers but cut dry hair service every four months. It soon adds up. We recommend servicing 6 monthly or as soon as damage occurs.
How to tell if they need sharpening/Servicing
- Pulling hair
- Not slicing or cutting
- Will not balance
- Folding hair at the tips
- Tired aching hands ( may be RSI think about changing your scissors)
- Take a single sheet of toilet tissue
- Separate the two halves
- Take one of the halves and wet it
- Hold it in one hand and try to cut it
Sharp scissors cut and slice. Blunt scissors tear or fold the tissue. Sharpening and servicing is now due to prolong the life of your scissor. "Note" It's not a good idea to cut paper with your scissors because it blunts them, but if you are testing because you are worried about sharpness it's probably time for a service anyway.
Scissors are dismantled, cleaned, inspected & tested for defects and damage. Then sharpened and hand honed using a combination of modern and traditional methods using the very best equipment, professional abrasives and polishing compounds are used throughout this process. Blades are then reset and any parts replaced free if needed. They are reassembled oiled balanced and tested again for perfect function, before dispatch.
Scissors are returned to you the same day we receive your scissor or the next working day. Total satisfaction without question.
