It depends on how often you cut hair and the metal quality of your shears. As a general rule, if you work 4-5 days a week in a salon, we recommend getting them sharpened once or twice a year to maintain a sharp edge. Some pet groomers need to have them sharpened more frequently as pet hair can cause dulling to occur more quickly. Keep an eye on how they feel when cutting and if you notice them pushing hair or thinners catching, it is probably time for a sharpening!
Yes, we sharpen all brands of shears along with all types. The price is the same for sharpening both regular and texturizing shears.
