"I love to use ARC Scissors when slice cutting around the face because they give a nice soft cut, great for adding subtle texture." @sallyhershberger

Absolutely love them!!

I’ve been a hairstylist for 23 years and these are by far my favorite pair of shears I have ever owned. They glide through the hair so smoothly when it’s both wet or dry. I love the versatility of them! Definitely worth the investment

A little snug

I got the Phantom II 5.5” right handed shears. I love the sharpness of the blades, the weight of the shears feels good. My issue with these shears is that the thumb and ring finger holes are smaller than the shears I previously used. The first day I had some irritation on my thumb cuticle and when I rotate them into my palm for combing and sectioning, they get stuck on my knuckle. I’m just not in love.

New favorite shears

I bought these about a month ago and admit that I didn't love them at first. I felt like they pulled when I would slide cut on dry hair but after a week they started to feel better and I've only been using these for the past month. Love them!

I was very skeptical that these scissors could be so different from
Other high end ones. Boy was I wrong! The minute I picked them up snd felt how lightweight they were I was amazed .
They are super comfortable in my hand and cut beautifully. I am now a believer!

Alison Hoff (Dracut, MA)
Love these!

I just updated my shears to the Phantom 2, they cut beautifully, lightweight and very comfortable!
