I’ve been buying my shears, combs and brushes from Mike for 18 years and I am alway satisfied. I bought two Kikui Cobalt shears from him a few years ago and I couldn’t be happier, he sends them to Japan to get sharpened and they come back better than they were when I go them brand new!
Great scissors and customer service!! Thanks
Quality shears and great customer service! You can’t go wrong with Hikari shears and Ibiza Brushes
I have been wanting to buy qulity shears for years but was stalling because I didn’t have enough knowledge on how to buy within my budget and cutting needs. Amazon reviews can only take you so far. I have asked stylists in the past but because I need them only for split ends, and trimming my young daughter’s long hair, their suggestions weren’t realistic for me. Mike was able to help me find appropriate shears and was super responsive and helpful. I finally felt confident enough to make the purchase. I cut my daughter’s hair this week, and the shears were fantastic. It was so easy and her ends look so good now. Many thanks to Mike for helping me figure this out. Sincerely, I have been interested in getting good shears for years. I’m really grateful to Mike for helping me do so.
Mike is super knowledgeable about all the tools he offers and is really helpful in making the best decisions for you’re specific needs.
Mike has has extensive selections of shears and accessories.Incredibly helpful and responsive.super happy with my KASHO shears.
Mike from LA Shear has been so helpful in finding the perfect pair of Hikari scissors for me. He has given me the option to test out the scissors I wanted (multiple times) & was so patient with me while I sorted out finances. These babies really are top-notch & I am beyond excited to have such a nice pair of scissors in my arsenal. Mike gave me a few options to pay in payments &/or finance through PayPal which was all helpful in making a decision. I really appreciate Mike & I know many other hairstylists who recommend him in the industry. I won’t go anywhere else for scissors moving forward!
I am based out of North Carolina and purchasing shears online was very intimidating. Being able to communicate with Mike about my needs as a stylist made me feel very confident with making such a big purchase. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient and took the time to answer all my questions. I just received my Hikari K60 and 777 texture shears yesterday and I am in heaven!!! They are perfect!!! I look forward to working with Mike again on future purchases. 😊✌🏻
I HIGHLY recommend working with Mike and LA SHEAR if you want the best tools. Purchasing high-quality tools during a pandemic, over the internet, without seeing them can be terrifying. That is until I started working with Mike. I did the research and had the basics ready (craftsmanship, steel quality, tempering, handle choices, etc.) so when I spoke with Mike the first time I knew I had found the right person. He truly cared about the decision I was making – finding the right shears for me. My cuts are cleaner, faster, growing out better, and the shears fit perfectly in my hand – what more can you ask for?! Thank you, Mike!!
L.A. Shears and Mike Johles are a true representation of customer service, professional product and equipment knowledge. Mike represents Hikari Scissors and Ibiza brushes the a way that these brands should be completely proud of!
Great shears, amazing service. Would definitely recommend. 5 stars!
Michael and Aaron have been servicing my shears since year 2000, and I have purchased 3 shears from them since then. Michael has always been patient with all my questions and very informative. I appreciate his listening skills in delivering what I ask for and making sure its a good fit. I will always go to LA Shear for my scissor needs. Thank you for always being honest and educational.MindfullyMari

Mike helped me pick out the perfect shears. It’s changing the game. Best shears ever!
Such a great experience. Took the time to help me find the perfect shears for me. Showed up in two days and I love them! Amazing communication throughout the process on shipping and making sure i love them! Thanks so much!
After my kit got stolen from my car and all of my tools taken, Mike was extremely accommodating, helpful, and knowledgeable in helping me rebuild my new kit. Would definitely recommend.
I excited to share my experience with LA Shear!If you’re looking for an experience person to educate you about shears, LA Shear is where to buy from. I’ve been in the business since 1992. Yes, I know it’s a long time, but I love what I do! I’ve ever talked to someone that knew so much about shears before! He steered me to the perfect shears for me. I could have easily spent more, but he knew what shears I needed for the type of cutting I do. I will definitely be buys more shears from LA Shear in the future!Plus he drives to you! You can’t be that for service!
It’s a shame I can only leave 5 stars for Lashears having had a fantastic experience buying/replacing my Kasho Millennium shears I had lost to a salon thief a few years ago so I am super happy to hold them again.Mike was very knowledgeable, passionate and genuinely interested in ensuring my needs were met so I will definitely be calling Mike for my shears, brushes and combs.Thank you Mike and everyone at LA Shears⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hikari are excellent shears! They are sharp, precise and long lasting. Mike is knowledgeable, trustworthy and catering to your needs! Great products, great service!
After doing some research, I knew I wanted to purchase Hikari shears and was introduced to Mike of LA Shear. From beginning to end, he made the experience of purchasing my shears most pleasant, as he was accommodating of my schedule, came to my salon, and had extensive knowledge of the products in order to help me find the right pair for my needs. After deciding on two pairs of shears, he even threw in some YS Park combs and Ibiza brushes to try! He has helped colleagues of mine in the same way. Very happy with everything, thank you!
Mike was excellent, love my shears, he is very attentive, Extremely professional.
