Earn $50,000 to $120,000
Approximately 1 million people work as hair stylists or barbers in the USA. These professionals rely on hair cutting scissors for their trade. They spend from a low of $100.00 to $3,000 or more for quality shears. The average is in the $200 to $400 dollar range. Most have a minimum of two pair (a styling shear and a texturizing shear) and as many as fifteen or twenty pair depending on how long they have been in the business.
With use the scissors blade gets dull and requires edge restoration (sharpening). Meeting the need for sharpening is a “get your foot in the door” technique for selling new shears. The beauty is you can earn up to $105.00 per hour sharpening while in the salon or barbershop selling new shears.
