The Price Of Sharpening Your Hair Scissors Professionally | Japan Scissors USA

It's no secret that hairdressers need to keep their scissors sharp to achieve the perfect haircut. But how much does it cost to sharpen hair cutting scissors, and is it worth it?

In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the cost of sharpening hair salon scissors and offer some tips on how to make the most of your investment. Stay tuned!

If you maintain them correctly, good hair shears can last about 400-500 hair cuts before needing sharpening or replacement. So the annual cost of sharpening your hair scissors depends on how often you use them. :)

Good quality haircutting scissors last for a longer time. Steel stainless hair shears last longer than cheaper materials since they don't trust easily and will hold their edge for more hair cuts. 

The price of sharpening hair scissors in America & Canada:

  • Haircutting shears (bevel edge): $15-40
  • Haircutting shears (convex edge): $15-50
  • Haircutting shears (Japanese clam edge): $15-50
  • Thinning shears: $20-60

Whether you live in New York, Seattle, or Texas, here is your easy guide to the cost of sharpening hair scissors for hairdressers and barbers!

How often should shears be sharpened?

Scissors need to be sharpened as often as they are used. In a professional barbershop, hairdresser or salon, you will need to sharpen your hair cutting or thinning scissors every 6 to 24 months

There are a variety of factors that influence this estimation. For instance, cutting dry hair is more difficult with scissors than cutting clean, wet hair. Another consideration is the quality that your scissors have.

Another thing to take into consideration is the cost of sharpening shears. A quality shear sharpener will cost between $15 and $30, plus approximately $10 for shipping, with the highest price reserved for convex edge shears. 

The bevel edge can save you quite a lot of money if you plan to use similar hair shears. It could be wiser to get a new pair if you can locate a good stainless-steel hair shears that you love between $35 and $60. 

This is a choice that you'd never think of with $200 shears, but with cheap, high-quality shears, you can purchase new shears without waiting for sharpening your shears.

Home users and professional hairstylists at salons for beauty hair shears do not automatically work. Whatever the cost of those hair cutting shears you've had your eye on looking at, they will not be able to cut hair for you and won't offer a higher quality cut.

What you're looking for using expensive shears is an indicator of their high-end quality to cut hair much more efficiently and without having to sharpen them for a longer time.
