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.

Love them

I have been doing hair for 30 plus years and tried all kinds of shears from $$$ to$ amount. I really loved these shear’s because they cut great, easy to use and not crazy $. Plus I love Sam Villas philosophy on hair.

Essential Series Shear

Love this Series Shear. This is my second Sam Villa shears and I am very satisfied with their function, better than my $850.00 dollar scissors from another company.

5 stars

Quality is high end. Beautiful shears. Will be purchasing the texturizing shears. Comfortable to hold. Wrists don’t get sore. Highly recommend to any professional that is ready to upgrade. Very sharp. Thumbs holes are very comfortable also. I wish the Black Friday sale was still on.
