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

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⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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!

LA Shear is the place you go if you are looking for the best deals on professional grade scissors, brushes etc. Ask any professional stylist and they will say the same thing. I met Mike when i was at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in 2004. Everyone knew who he was rhere so I immediately felt like i was in good hands. I have been going through LA Shear ever since, whenever I need anything regarding hair tools, or need info on classes, new products, anything and everything.. LA Shear is LA's premiere hairdresser supply service.

This company is great! I was searching for authentic YS Park combs and found LA SHEAR. I am so happy I did! Their pricing is FANTASTIC and customer service is out of this world! I placed my order and received it three days later. I live on the East coast and was shocked at how fast I received my order. Mike is amazing and reached out to me personally to thank me for my order. That personal touch from a business goes a long way for me. I will continue to order all of my combs from Mike and LA SHEAR

Mike’s attentiveness, professionalism, and passion for shears and make him the absolute best person to buy your shears from.My sister just graduated from cosmetology school and asked for Japanese scissors as a birthday / graduation gift. I know nothing about the underground world of scissors, so I frantically looked everywhere for Japanese scissors and had no luck. It was by some miracle and true blessing that I came across LA SHEAR online and with it, Mike. He offered to give my sister a demonstration at her home, something that no one does, in order to help my sister choose her shears and personalize them to her hands. Mike is an incredible being who even allowed my whole family to witness this special demonstration and fitting.Now when I say miracle, I truly mean miracle because he came out to my sisters house on Thanksgiving day! If that isn’t commitment to your passion, I don’t know what is. My family and I are forever indebted to Mike for his kindness, knowledge, and fast delivery.My sister is beyond happy with her product and my family is forever grateful. We cannot thank him enough.

Mike at LA SHEAR is awesome! He is honest and helpful and always quick to respond. When I told him about the Hikari’s that I wanted, he told me that this other pair of Hikari’s would be better for me. He was right and I absolutely love my shears and he saved me money! He sells the best hair clips on the market and I also buy the SERO from him and it is helping all my client’s hair to grow thicker and healthier. Definitely a game changer! Mike is not only a great salsa dancer, but a huge help to the hair professionals!

I’ve been a client with this company for years now. First it started with their hair brushes Ibiza, great quality. Then I purchased thinning shears. Always skeptical when it comes to big purchase but when I sampled them compared to other ones, I was sold. And still loving them. Last but not least, Mike came to me with Sero professional vitamins for hair and nails and overall health benefits. I didn’t question wether they were good or bogus due to the previous purchases I’ve made. These pills are magic and my clients buy them on a monthly basis because they do notice a difference. I’m so glad that I have Mike as my representative and have kept in contact with him through all these years. Good trusted products that you can count on.

I purchased my First Hikari Shear from Mike at LA SHEAR when I first started my career & I was finishing Vidal Sassoon. Many of the educators their Recommended Hikari and I started with the Hikari Anatomic 103 Cosmos which I love.The 103 Hikari Cosmos helped me build my Career as a Stylist. However, I knew it was time to get a Longer more Powerful shear!Recently I just Purchased the Hikari Dragon 172 Dry Cutting shear which has exceeded my expectations.The 172 cuts Dry hair like it is wet and the finished results are Spectacular!It was really cool that Mike Let me try the Shear out for the Day so I could make sure I loved it before I invested. I highly recommend Mike & LA SHEAR because if you’re around LA he’ll let you try the shear before you buy and I loved all the free gifts Like Ibiza brushes and YS park Combs.There are so many people selling Junk Scissors online and that come into my salon, its really cool to have someone I can Trust to hook me with The Finest Shears,I am looking forward to adding the 6 inch Hikari Cosmos to my collection next!I love the freedom of The Anatomic Grip on my 5 inch can’t wait to get a 6 inch version!

HIKARI is the best hands down and so is Michael! I’ve needed new shears for a long time. He intuitively knew what I needed after only a 30 second consultation. The first pair I used were amazing and felt like and extension of my hand! Tried a few more just to make sure but kept going back to them. They are the HIKARI cosmos 6 inch with anatomic grip. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! This purchase was way too long over do. They cut like Butter!!! After 20 plus years in the business I can honestly say I love cutting hair again! So excited to use them each time. I so needed this purchase. Get them, you’ll be glad you did!
