Join Us in Cutting Childhood Cancer Out of Our Lives and Let's Cut for a Cure!! 8/30/2012
We'll be at Finnigan's Wake in beautiful downtown Winston-Salem on Sept 15th to raise funds for childhood cancer with a St Baldrick's Shave Off. Did you know that every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer? We want to help change that!
St. Baldrick's Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Since 2000, more than 240,000 volunteers -- including over 24,000 women -- have shaved in solidarity with children with cancer at events in dozens of countries and every U.S. state. You don't have to shave your head but you can pledge money towards someone that does! Join our team! http://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/mypage/79683/2012 I'm raising funds in Memory of My Mother, Connie Young. Help me reach my goal.
Though Breast Cancer month doesn't officially start until October, Shears4Hair has arranged to carry some companies shears year round! So, if your looking to give back an easy way check out our Cut 4 A Cure Category, where we sell Breast Cancer Shears, Razors, even pretty Pink Cases year round! This I do in Memory of both my Grandmother and Mom, who I just lost in July. Dani
6/16/2011 Tondeo Sifter Razors are Indestructible!

8/3/09 Using Your Good Haircutting Shears on Synthetic Hair, Not Good Mojo, for Your Shears That Is!
Synthetic hair used in weaves and extensions can be rough on your shears! We suggest you use a different pair when cutting synthetic hair. You can use an old pair or buy an inexpensive pair to cut the synthetic hair. Save your favorite haircutting shears for the real deal; real hair! Weaves and Extensions are popular right now, and though they look and feel like real hair, the moleculer structure makes them dull your shears faster! So keep the sharpener away another day and use your good shears on real hair and have a pair that you use ONLY on synthetic hair! Fromm's Genesis shears are a great example of an inexpensive shear you should use. They are a German Style Shear, With a Durable Beveled/Knife Edge on the blades. Using a Spare Pair of inexpensive haircutting shears will save you money down the road by saving the edge on your blades of your good ones! Look in our category Hair Shears under $100! for Inexpensive Shears to use on Synthetic Hair!

Buying a gift for that new Graduating Hair Stylist, Barber or Professional Pet Groomer can be a little difficult. These gift ideas are sure to be a hit with any new grad making you look like the Greatest Gift Giver Ever!
1. A Shears4Hair Gift Certificate Why? There is no limit to the amount you can give and our gift certificates never expire or lose worth. We think gift certificates that lose worth, well, are worthless! We can either e-mail the gift certificate to you, or the recipient, or send it attractively packaged to you or the lucky recipient free of charge!
2. Tondeo's Stainless Steel Sifter Razor Why? It is a VERY versatile Hair Cutting Razor for hairstylist or barbers, as it can be used to razor cut hair, yet it is safe & gentle enough to shave client's with! And Tondeo Razor Blades Snap in Half, making them 50 Cents Per Blade! That saves the Stylist or Barber Lots of Money in the Long Run!
3. A Special Shear Storage Case or Holster for Professional Pet Groomers Why? Expensive Hair Cutting Shears and Scissors should always be protected. Protect their investment with a case or a holster and save them money down the road. Available in many styles and colors, these are always a hit! We like the Kenchii's Case and Holsters in One for Professional Pet Groomers, as it can be used as a case or a holster by simply adding the included belt!

These make an Excellent Gift for the New Stylists or the Seasoned Hand at Hair Cutting and Pay for Themselves in Return Business! Also great for the Cosmetologist School Grad to Say Thanks!
6/15/09 Question of the Week! How Do I Snap a Tondeo Razor Blade in Half? How does that save me money?
Each Tondeo Razor Blade is Invidually Wrapped in a Wax Type Parchment Paper, making it easy to safely snap the blades in half. Remove wrapped blade from box. Leave parchment wrapping intact.
Using your fingers, fold the wrapped blade in half
Fold, All the Way to Both Ends, Making Sure the Blade is Broken All the Way
Once Broken in Half, Use One Half in Your Tondeo Sifter Razor and Save the Other Half for Your Next Client!
Tondeo Razor Blades are Two Blades in One! Unlike Most Razor Blades, You Get Two Uses Out of Each Blade! This Means That a Tondeo Blade Costs 50 Cents each Rather than the Usual $1.00 Per Blade, Saving You Money and Time, as You Don't Have to Re-stock Supplies as Often. Tondeo Razor Blades used most by Hair Stylists are the TSS-3 Blades, Tondeo TCR Blades are often favorites of Barbers. Both Fit the All Stainless Steel Tondeo Sifter Razor Hope this helps you all!
6/11/09 This Weeks Specials, Great for Grads or Seasoned Hands!
If you are looking for a gift for a new cosmetology graduate or a Hair Stylists looking for a great deal, then we have two Rotorazor deals for you! One includes and Amazing Crocodile Case and Holster in One and Four Carbon Combs with the Rotorazor.

5/30/09 Hair Tattoos and Tribal Styling With Tondeo Razors and Tondeo Razor Blades
Hair Tattooing, Tribal Hair Cutting, is also sometimes called carving. Any Stylist or Barber that does it is a talented Artists. It requires imagination, talent, and mad skills to Hair Tattoo. The tools of choice are clippers and a razor for most Tribal designers. The best razor, hands down is the Tondeo Sifter Razor, sometimes referred to as the cut throat razor. Tondeo has even came out with a razor especially for Hair Tattooing, Tribal Styling, or carving, aptly called the Tondeo Tribal Razor.
The Hair Tattoo can be anything the customer wants and anything the barber or stylists can do. The imagination is the limit! Using hand drawn art, cartoons, tattoos, images, logos, or just their imagination, barbers and stylists have been transforming heads into Art! Customers range in age from 10-100, male and female alike have been seen sporting them, but the majority of the hair tattoos seen are on younger guys.
It is a great way for stylist and barbers to showcase their Artistic talents and a great way for the client to make their statement! It is also a fun way to bring younger guys into your shop or salon, and increase your earnings.
The awesome thing about the Tondeo Sifter Razor and the Tondeo Tribal Razor is that the blades snap in half. So, if you order a box of 10 blades, you are really getting 20 blades and it is the same with the Tondeo blades in the boxes of 100, you are really getting 200. The blades all snap in half.
Unlike the newer hair razors, the Tondeo TCR razor blades and the Tondeo TSS-3 Razor Blades cost less than $1.00 a piece. How is that for saving you money is your barber shop or salon? Pretty good? ShearsforHair thinks so.

5/14/09 Tondeo Razors & Razor Blades Were Impossible to Find in the USA, Until Today!
For the last few months in 2008 and these first few of 2009, Tondeo Hair Cutting Razors and Shears have been virtually impossible to find in the USA. Desperate stylist and barbers have even resorted to having relatives abroad, send them the replacement blades for the often copied but NEVER duplicated Tondeo Sifter Razor. We are happy to say, they are back and we have them! Any stylists or barber can tell you that the Tondeo folding Sifter Razor and the Tondeo Replacement Blades; (the long TSS-3 and the shorter TCR Blades) are a must have tool for serious hair Artists!
We are happy to see Tondeo back in the USA! And we are sure you will be as well! ShearsforHair.com

5/8/09 FREE Advertising for Your Hair Salon, Barbershop, Professional Pet Grooming Shop, Promoting Yourself On the Internet
I recently was on the Internet looking at a regular customers website (a very high end Salon's) It was very nice, very appealing and hip. If your business doesn't have a website, I suggest you get one. It is a great way to market and can be as simple as adding your business to a Yahoo Local Listing, a Facebook page, MySpace page or even Wikipedia! More and more people are turning to the Internet rather than the local phone book and how are they going to find you, if you aren't there?
There are professionals that you can hire to design professional websites and even social networking site profiles for your business or you. If your Barbershop, Salon, Spa, or Professional Pet Grooming business is small, and you don't have the resources to pay a pro, you can easily use these free forums to advertise and market. Even if you don't own your own business, promote yourself for FREE! Let people know where you are and include your hours of operation. If you are technologically challenged, never fear, most teenagers can show you how and some will be happy to do it for you! You can even do this if you don't own a computer. Local Libraries have FREE computers that you can use.
Add your business or yourself to the Internet and watch your business grow!

4/16/09 Tax Tips for 2009, Start Saving Today!
I know you have barely wiped the sweat from your brow from filing this years taxes but, now is the time to think about NEXT years taxes and how you can lower your obligation to the IRS or eliminate it! If you lack organization skills, it's OK. These simple tips should help you along the way. Save Reciepts for EVERYTHING you use in the commission of cutting and styling hair, and old Shoebox will do, or if you are the OCD Organizer Grab an Accordian Type Folding File. Here are some Examples of the Types of Reciepts You Should Be Saving:
- Supplies purchased by you to be used on a client, for example, hair cutting shears, disposable blades, hair clips, hair cutting capes, color and color mixing supplies, hair cutting razors and blades, Clippers, Clipper Blades, etc.
- Continuing Education Expenses: The receipts for any Classes or Seminars, Hair Industry/Grooming Publications, even your licensure fees!
- Clothing, but this one is tricky, you can only deduct the costs of uniforms. If you work in a salon, shop or spa that has a uniform vest, apron, or smock, this is a deduction. You cannot deduct the latest Gucci rags just because you want to look cute! Professional Pet Groomers have much more leeway here. If you buy it to wear to work ONLY, then it can be considered a uniform.

3/31/09 How to Test Your Hair Cutting Shears Sharpness
How Sharp are You? Did you know that your dull hair cutting shears don't cut cleanly and can actually damage your client's hair? And for you Professional Pet Groomers, why work harder than you already do?
Try these test to evaluate your shear sharpness:
Can you cut a wet facial tissue with your shears?
Do they cut from the tip to the ride line (where your blades meet at the screw)?
Do they chew that Kleenex or pull at it, ripping it?
Another way to check; dangle a piece of thread WITHOUT keeping it taunt and try cutting it. Start from the pivot of your shears (where the screw joins the blades' of your shears) and cut the thread numerous times, going down your blades, This way you test your blades from the top, to middle and all the way to your tips!
Your shears should cut in all areas on your blades. If your shears snag the thread, or if they fold the thread, first check their tension. If your tension is too loose, your shears will fold hair. If you tension is right and they still don't cut hair well, it is time to get out those back-up shears out and send the dull ones to your Sharpener!

3/10/09 How to Change Blades in Your Fromm Shaper Razor, Jaquar Edge Razor, and Edge Ahead Texturizing Razors!
How to Replace the Blades in Your Hair Cutting Razors:
Step 1: Place end of blade closest to the handle of the razor against ledge on the side of the replacement blade dispenser.
Step 2: Use ledge on dispenser to carefully push the blade toward the end of razor. The blade fits tightly into the razor, so some force may be necessary.
Step 3: Do not remove the replacement blade from dispenser. Align the end of the channel in the razor with the end of a replacement blade in the dispenser.
Step 4: Slide the razor to the far end of the dispenser, keeping razor parallel to the blade.
Step 5: Use the razor to lift the blade out of the dispenser. Dispose of used blade safely.
These instructions apply to Fromm Premium Styling Razor #108, Jaguar Edge Razor #JG300, Edge-Ahead Texture Razors #112R, #113R, #114R and #115R, and to replacement blades #109, #110TB, #JG301 and #JG302.
Always handle razors and replacement blades with care, as they are extremely sharp. ShearsforHair wants you to cut wic
