The Australian hairdressing scissor and barber shears market is larger than ever before, but how do you know what pair to choose with more stores selling online with new brands appearing every year?
How To Choose Hairdressing Scissors
Choosing hairdressing scissors depends on what you will use them for. If you are cutting hair for your family, then a simple pair will suffice, but if you are a professional cutting day in day out, then you will need to choose a pair that will last, that will cut sharp with no tugging or pulling and find a pair that suits your budget. Check out this blog for the difference between German and Japanese hairdressing scissors.

Where to Buy Scissors in Australia
Retail stores are disappearing and online stores are everything. Delivering hairdressing scissors from an online store has never been easier, but with so many options available how do you know what to choose? There are reliable sites like Japan Scissors, but we want to break down a few rules when shopping online for hair cutting scissors or barber shears.
- A “no questions asked” return policy in case they don’t fit
- Reviews on the site and their positive customer service
- Warranty on the pair of scissors you are ordering
- Shipping within Australia, not overseas
- Legitimate names of steel used (440C, VG10 etc.) and not made up names like “Samurai Steel”
- Active Social Media Presence that shows they are engaging with their community
- AfterPay and ZipPay available
These are the first rules to finding a reliable online hairdressing supplier that will deliver quality service and solid products. There are a lot of cheap hairdressing scissors out there, but for a budget of $200-300, you should be able to find a quality pair that will keep cutting for years to come.
In the near future Scissor Hub will have a detailed catalogue of hairdressing scissor brands and online stores in Australia. This will provide you with a clean and straightforward solution to searching for a hairdressing brand and supplier that fits you.
