In-Salon Sharpening

At Scissorfix, we offer a professional in salon scissor sharpening service throughout Ireland to supplement our postal sharpening service. We realise that it is not often possible or desirable for the stylist to post off their scissors to be sharpened. There can be several reasons for this; ranging from needing the scissors to lack of confidence in postal sharpening services.

Although we endeavour to return posted scissors as soon as possible, the hairdressing stylist may have only one pair and being without them for the turnaround period required for postal sharpening would adversely affect the stylist’s productivity. Even if the stylist has several backup pair of scissors, invariably these scissors are in a worse condition than the main scissors and the stylist is unwilling to work with them for the period required.

Our research has revealed a further issue which can arise in relation to postal sharpening. Often the stylist is unwilling to send scissors off to be sharpened due to a lack of confidence in the process. This can arise from a previous poor experience with postal sharpening companies, or simply a reluctance to send away what are often highly expensive scissors to companies while knowing little about the sharpening techniques employed.

At Scissorfix, we understand these concerns and aim to provide a solution to them. Our highly trained sharpeners are equipped to travel to the stylist’s salon and perform a professional sharpening there. The stylist is thus able to raise any concerns he or she may have and our technician can address them. He or she can watch the entire sharpening process take place and be reassured that the scissors are in good hands. By being able to speak to the stylist, the sharpening technician can provide a more individual service based on the stylist’s preferences. Scissor tension, finger-rests, or stoppers, for example, can be adjusted to suit the client’s needs. Because the salon visit dramatically reduces the time the stylist is without the scissors, to the time the physical sharpening takes, the effect on productivity is kept to a minimum, indeed we can provide an alternative pair to use while the scissors are being sharpened.

We understand that the salon can be a busy place, and at Scissorfix we aim to carry out our in salon sharpening with the minimum of disturbance to the salon. Our dedicated sharpening equipment requires very little space to operate, a single hairdressing station with a socket is sufficient. Often we sharpen in the kitchen or back room when it is very busy. By working efficiently and professionally you can be assured of the best quality of scissor sharpening throughout Ireland with the minimum of fuss.
