Product Details

Accessible Value

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.

A Triumph!!!!!

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!!!

Hand saver!

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.

Awesome Shears!

Love these shears! I am not a professional hairdresser but I wanted shears that would help this DIY’er get the job done on my own hair as well as my husband’s. It was exciting to be able to do point cutting and layering and even blunt cutting without my shears hanging up. And the finger holds are simply the best design ever. Extremely comfortable to hold and to use. Thank you Sam Villa for creating such a magnificent tool!
