Sharpening FAQs

Why do I need my shears sharpened?

Precision haircuts depend on two things: your skill as a stylist and the performance of your shears. Substandard edges mean inconsistent cuts and extra work for your hands. Shears that won’t slide, give a crunchy cut or fold the hair need sharpening and/or repair.

Why do I need a specialized sharpener to do the work?

Scissors don’t die of overuse, they are literally sharpened to death. The single most important factor that determines the lifespan of your shears is the skill level of the sharpener. High quality sharpening removes only the absolute minimum of steel to develop a precise, polished new edge while preserving the shape of the shears.

How much does sharpening cost?

Standard shears are cleaned, sharpened and sanitized for $32 at on-site sharpening. If there are extra repairs that are needed, each scissors is evaluated individually.
