Before we do, please keep in mind that we will only mention premium quality hairdressing scissors made for and used by professional hairdressers and barbers. No kitchen scissors for dressmaking scissors will be mentioned in this article. So to name a few we have Yasaka, Matsui, Joewell, Kamisori, Jaguar, Sozu, Hikari and lastly Fuji.
