Product Details

Unmatched Softness and Texture

Add a softer and smoother touch to your motion cutting techniques. The Artist Series 6” Slide Cutting Shear is designed to protect the integrity of hair as you slide the blades down the hair strand. The curved blade design and Smooth Slide™ blade finish let you slide cut even dry hair effortlessly, without damaging the cuticle. This shear is ideal for techniques like slicing, channel cutting, pinch and talk, and even point cutting.

Endless Beautiful Possibilities

Control the amount of weight removed by changing how fast you close the blades and the angle of the shear. The faster you close the blades while slide cutting, the more hair slips out, resulting in less hair removal. To cut more hair, close the blades more slowly. Also, cutting at a more parallel angle results in very light hair removal, while a steeper angle takes away larger pieces. This versatility allows you to create an incredible range of styles with one tool.

Work Pain-Free

Experience unparalleled comfort and control. The sculpted handle with a forward set thumb allows you to use a wide variety of cutting positions while maintaining positive ergonomics. Keep your wrist straight and your shoulder relaxed throughout the haircut for a more comfortable cutting experience.

Pretty good

I like these but i don’t love them. I’m not used to the pinky spot yet, much different than my other shears. They are great for dry slide cutting but that seems to be the only thing I really Like them for. Which is fine, I needed a good shear for that, that was the point. Just expected them to be a little more encompassing.
