As a serious hair stylist, you highly value the importance of your tools, and you would like to give it the best care and maintenance it deserves. We know we should clean it after every haircut, oil it every day, but when it comes to sharpening, there’s no hard written rule as to how often we should get them serviced.
The general rule of thumb is roughly after 700 haircuts. But of course, that’s a bit difficult to follow, so probably after 3-6 months is a good start. Don’t wait for your scissors to become dull before deciding to get them sharpened. Schedule your sharpening session so that you won’t have to suffer possible damages and injuries from using dull scissors.
Another thing to look out for are a few warning signs that would tell you your scissors need attention ASAP. Some of these circumstances include the presence of nicks. If you also notice that your scissors are pushing or pulling hair, that’s also a sign that you need to book an appointment with a professional sharpening service like Shear Genius.
