Handle Design: Classic Series
Work Without Pain
Do you feel pain in your wrist, neck or shoulder at the end of a long day behind the chair? Do you suffer from carpal tunnel or other repetitive strain conditions?
If so, moving to a swivel shear will transform the way you work! Our forward set thumb design allows you to maintain a neutral and natural hand position that minimizes strain. With the rotating swivel thumb, you can direct the blades with your fingers, not your whole upper body. Instead of twisting your shoulder to cut length or layers, keep your elbow relaxed at your side and simply rotate the thumb ring. Protect your thumb tendon, wrist, neck, shoulder and back by keeping your wrist straight and your elbow low throughout the haircut.
Protect Your Elbow with 5 Cutting Positions
These versatile shears can be used in five different cutting positions, allowing you to achieve any angle without ever raising your elbow above 90 degrees.
Detailed Precision Cutting
Don’t sacrifice function for ergonomics. Working with your elbow supported against your body not only keeps you safe, it also gives you added control when precision cutting. The shorter blades on the 5.5” swivel shear let you get closer to the head to create clean lines and exquisite detail.
I love a swivel thumb!
Love these shears too! I wish I had purchased the longer ones but I’m getting used to them
Nice it was a loooooong time ago
I’ve used my Sam villa shears for years and I love them. I have multiple sizes for different cutting needs. I absolutely love the swivel. I always recommend them to my staff members as well
Questionable Customer Service
All of my tools are Sam Villa; scissors, hot tools, brushes/combs, etc. I love the brand! After ordering some new scissors on an amazing sale on National Hair Day, there was an issue with my order. After emailing with someone from the customer care team who was super helpful and quick to respond, I was told that I had to be charged full price but the remaining from the sale price would be refunded. I gave it a little time and emailed the person I spoke with that resolved the issue and asked when the money would be refunded into my account and did not receive a reply. I’ve emailed multiple times and have yet to receive a reply. The scissors were on sale for 44% off and I had wanted them for quite a while, which is why I bought them. They are terrific scissors but I wish I wouldn’t have ordered them if I knew I was going to be putting myself out. Super disappointing service from one of my favourite brands!
Professional Swivel Shear
I wouldn't be without a swivel. It is ergonomically correct for ongoing comfort and protection. I love that Sam Villa has ongoing education on everything in his toolbox! Plus their customer service is top notch.
Great pair of shears and a great price. Comfortable swivel and super sharp.
We are so glad that you love your shears as much as we do! -The Sam Villa Team
Not happy at all they were great until blade folded and indented one another then wouldn’t close.

Compact, super sharp, comfortable design
Boy oh boy, do I just love these shears. I cut my own lob often and I needed a shear that xould allow me the freedom to maneuver more precisely when sectioning and cutting especially those sections combed center back at 90°. These shears are key and I just got my 14 Tooth point cutting shears to finish the edges to bring a more modern airy style to my cut. They are my new staples and I have quite a few shears that all have different jobs, but these are the best. If you're looking for a fabulous compact, versatile, super sharp, high quality shear to work with smaller sections, these are for you. They have all the bells and whistles shears 3x the cost have. L:heartpulse:VE them!
Thank you so much for the praise! Cutting your own hair can often be hard, so we can really appreciate how nice it is to have shears that help so much! -The Sam Villa Team
Not for me
These scissors did not work for me. I think it’s hard to “teach an old dog new tricks”. I couldn’t get used to the handle and the swivel. It actually made my thumb and joints hurt when they had never before. I have cut hair for 33 years and I just couldn’t get used to it. The customer service and return process was great
We are so sorry that you were unable to acclimate to the shears. Thank you so much for your review. -The Sam Villa Team
Thumb hole was wayyy too small, had to take out the cushion. Didnt come with replacements
We are saddened to hear that your shear was not a perfect fit! Please reach out to our shear partner at 800-729-3343 if you need further assistance or replacement cushions! Thanks -The Sam Villa Team
