The SENSEI Swivl 3D Texture™ Mixed Tooth Shear brings our amazing soft slide technology to a multi dimensional texture tool. This shear gives you the perfect texture of varied point cutting. Closing this shear on a section will create negative space within a section with no visible point of origin for the negative space. It creates a mix of more and less aggressive point cutting within each cut for an even more dimensional texture. This is essentially what you get from creative point cutting. The difference is this shear does it with a single cut across a section instead of you point cutting 10-15 times into the section. Stylists tell us these shears save them as much as 7 to 10 minutes on each haircut. Not only that, but they also say their clients start calling them a few weeks after their cut to find out what they did differently to make the cut grow out better. The answer is, the texture from this tool is consistent and perfect every time. Point cutting on the other hand, is random at best and it's easy to cut too hard across a section and make a notch that will be the spot that pops out three weeks into a cut and make it look like the cut is falling apart already. Not to mention these can save all the wear and tear on the tips of your shears that come with point cutting. They pay for themselves by reducing your sharpening costs on you cutting shear. See also the 14 and 10 tooth Point Cut Texture™ shear for different forms of texture. It's ideal to have a variety of texture tools at your disposal for different hair thicknesses and types.
