What shear tension system is right for you?

As a hair stylist, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is invest in high-quality hair shears for your salon. In order to create the best possible looks for your clients as efficiently as possible, you will need shears that can withstand constant use on a daily basis.

In order to make sure that your hair shears remain in top shape, you will need to select the right tension system for your tools. There are several different kinds out there for you to choose from, each with their own unique advantages and disadvantages.

Here are a few kinds of popular tension systems:

  • Advanced leaf spring tension: The biggest advantage of this kind of tension system is how it spreads the tension out lengthwise in the pivot of the shear. This system can extend the life of the edge by stabilizing the blades and evenly distributing the work.
  • Ball bearing leaf spring tension: The ball bearings in this system include ball bearings which can help stabilize the blades. The bearing is tightly fitted in the center of the shears and the blades rotate on the bearing instead of a typical washer.
  • Flat bearing tension system: This kind of shear has internal ball bearings between the blades. This kind of shear tends to hold tension very well and can provide a flat pivot that is stable for those clients that prefer a streamlined look with their hair.
