In the world of hairdressing, where precision and craftsmanship are paramount, there’s one name that has stood the test of time: Hikari. Since 1969, Hikari has been the trusted choice of top hairstylists worldwide. The story of Hikari is a tale of passion, excellence, and relentless pursuit of perfection.

In this blog post, we’ll explore why Hikari scissors have been the preferred tool of top hairstylists for over five decades, and how LA Shear, an authorized dealer in Los Angeles and Southern California, has been instrumental in bringing this legendary brand to salons since 1997.


A Legacy of Excellence

Hikari was founded in 1969 by Fukataro Takahashi, a nationally acclaimed champion hairdresser from Japan. Takahashi’s dream was to provide every hairdresser with the ultimate cutting shear. He was driven by a passion for perfection, unwilling to accept that there was no “perfect” tool out there. His dedication led to the birth of Hikari Scissors.

Each pair of Hikari scissors is meticulously handcrafted in their Niigata factory in Japan, upholding the highest standards of quality. Inspired by the legendary Japanese Katana swords, Hikari’s signature Convex Edge technology delivers unrivaled sharpness and precision in every cut. It’s this commitment to craftsmanship that sets Hikari apart from the rest.
