Okay so I saw a post on here a few weeks ago about a scissor sharpening company called Totally Shears doing an intro offer of sorts and so I decided to send my old original beauty school Sassoon Academy 5.5s shear in. I figured worst comes to worst I STILL just won't be able to use them, cause they were so dull and embarrassing looking that they were just boxed away. Anyways, I got them back today and I feel like they cut better than my current pair of daily workhorse shears now. So I'm pretty happy. Thanks Hairbrained and Totally Shears.
