60%-70% removal of hair
The SYMMETRY 10/10 Reversible Texturizer is a premium texturizing scissor that features 10 teeth with 10 grooves per tooth, removing approximately 60% to 70% of hair depending on the angle of the blade while cutting. The 10/10 leaves visible texture and can be used for creating traditional texture or straight textured lines in bob cuts. This is a reversible scissor that can be used from both sides (flipped), allowing you to cut hair differently when the teeth are pointed up or down. This scissor effortlessly slices and slide cuts through hair with zero drag or pull.
What Makes It Different:
This is a reversible scissor and can be used from both sides (flipped). Flipping or "reversing" the scissor allows you to cut hair differently with the teeth pointed up or down. This scissor will effortlessly slice and slide-cut through hair with zero drag or pull.
Ultra premium ATS314 steel
Full convex blades
Butterfly "eyeglass" handle that is precisely carved out to allow for perfect positioning with each of the four basic hand positions. The "eyeglass" handle allows for reversible use making it two scissors in one.
Best Used For:
Thinning and texturizing techniques. This scissor can be used 90 degrees to the hair to remove approximately 60% with each cut, or angled to the hair to remove between 10% and 60%. The angle of the scissor will determine the amount of hair removal with each cut.
This Reversible Texturizer is also excellent for scissor-over-comb and is used by many stylists for start-to-finish haircuts. This scissor may be used at an angle to slice-cut and remove as little or as much weight as you desire, without dragging or pulling the hair!
Most texturizing scissors are made by EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) Wire Cutting at a 90-degree angle. This method allows scissor-makers to create 10 blades at one time.
Our patented Reversible Texturizers are tilted 20 degrees, then cut at a 70-degree angle instead of the traditional 90-degree cutting angle, so only one blade can be made at a time.
This procedure takes much longer to make a scissor, but because of these steps, our Reversible Texturizers can be used for slice-cutting with zero drag or pull. This procedure of wire cutting takes 3 hours for just one blade!
This process makes our Reversible Texturizers far superior than any others on the market. Regular wire cut thinners and texturizers cannot slice-cut since the teeth are created at a 90-degree angle, resulting in dragging and pulling of the hair.
Tension Screw System:
The SYMMETRY 10/10 Reversible Texturizer is fit with our Japanese stainless steel flat tension screw and is adjustable with a coin or screwdriver. This advanced tension system distributes precise and even tension from pivot to tip and is extremely stable, delivering perfect balance day after day.
"I'm so impressed with the ARC Scissors SYMMETRY 10/10 Reversible Texturizer. I'm a big fan of using texturizers to achieve soft bobs, and these scissors have quickly become my favorite." @chrisjones_hair
So impressed. Such sharp precise cutting and blending. Great for the modern texture needed. Gave me confidence for those extreme thick, lengthily appointments
They are amazing. Like a knife through butter. Love them. Worth every penny.
I’ve had my eye on these texturizing shears for about a year and wanted to wait for some more education before I purchased them. Took a few courses where stylists taught how to use them and it’s been a serious game changer.. I can’t believe I’m just purchasing them now, 13 years into my career!
These are the best shears I have ever used ! I will never purchase another brand ever again ! Thank you for the holiday Sale !
Love these shears. So smooth and easy to work with! ARC is by far my fav!
Well worth the investment!!
