Professionally sharpening your scissors will prolong the lifespan of the hair scissor blade. 

In Australia & New Zealand, professional sharpening services typically cost between $20-50. Each scissor and blade type is different, and can affect the overall price for sharpening.

A sharpening service cannot restore your scissors to their original sharpness; however, a professional sharpener will ensure that your blade is secured so that it is razor-sharp enough to cut through the barbershop or salon.

The cost you pay to get your scissors sharpened will include:

  • Sharpening your blade
  • The strength of your blade
  • Assuring that the tension and screws are correct in setting
  • Chips and scratches caused to the blade

If you purchase a costly set of hair cutting, texturizing or thinning shears, you'll require professional sharpening to ensure that the blade remains sharp for many years to come.

Do not attempt to sharpen them yourself, as a single mistake could cause permanent harm to the blade.
