Essential Series Shear
- Neutral hand/thumb position for a relaxed cut
- Angled handle allows for an elbow down posture in most cutting positions
- Constructed from 440C steel - the highest grade of stainless alloy
- Cryogenically tempered steel improves the durability of the edge by up to 40%
- Click set streamline tension system provides consistent tension throughout the life of the shear
- Convex blades provide the smoothest, longest lasting cut available - these type of blades are the same as our Signature Series Shears
Perfect for students and newer stylists, the Essential Series Shear offers exceptional precision and ergonomics at an accessible price point. Convex blades made of high quality Japanese stainless steel alloy slide smoothly through hair without pulling or tugging. The click set streamline tension system provides consistent tension across the blades, making this an excellent tool for slide cutting.
Stay Healthy Behind the Chair
No matter where you are in your career, it’s essential to stay healthy and injury-free so you can keep doing what you love. Opposing grip shears force your arm into a raised and stressful position, straining your elbow and shoulder. The Essential Series Shear features a crane handle that lets you keep your elbow low and relaxed in most cutting positions. With the forward set thumb, you can cut with your hand in a natural, neutral position to protect your wrist. Get the results you want with minimum input from your body, and stay pain-free behind the chair.
Intricate Detail Work
The blades on our Essential Series Shear allow you to adopt a variety of hand positions to access tight areas close to the head. Reach for this tool for delicate precision cutting and working with smaller sections of hair.

Really light in love
I am not a hairstylist which is important before you read any further! Lol- I bought these because I cut my own hair and so does my mom, so I purchased these for our own use and just to have a reliable pair of scissors. However, the whole for my thumb is way too small which makes them very uncomfortable to use, which I haven’t been able to. They cut very well of course, these are VERY nice quality. Just an aspect I never considered and kind of bummed
Love the design. They are so nice. Great quality. I am extremely happy!! Love them
We are shear glad to hear that! Thanks for the love! -The Sam Villa Team
LOVE LOVE LOVE these. After using these for a week I don’t know how I ever used my regular shear.
We are so glad that you love your shears as much as we do! Thank you for the love! -The Sam Villa Team
My sister and I ordered these shears for our mom for Mother’s Day….she was ultra excited she had a hunch and knew what we got her. She has enjoyed them immensely, styling her own hair and her clients. Definitely looking forward to getting her more tools in the future!!!
What a great present! We are so glad to hear that she loved them! -The Sam Villa Team
I have been having thumb and hand pain for some time. I saw your video about the right scissors. So we don’t have the pain. So far just this week. Everything has changed. My thumb is starting to feel better. I am even cutting easier at the right angle again. I was doing everything to cut so I didn’t hurt. I love them.
Hi there! That's what we love to hear! We love to help people avoid as much pain as possible to do what they love! Thanks -The Sam Villa Team
