Shear Stories Blog

This Shear Stories blog is about stories from the salon world. This includes valuable tool guides to help stylists select the best work tools in the areas of shears, brushes, and combs. It will also cover best salon practices, and topics of interest to today's stylists and salon owners.

It is being written by Ben Seyfarth, a sharpener and supplier to the Chicago-area beauty industry. Ben has over 17 years of experience working for and with Chicago's top stylists and salons. This experience permits a unique viewpoint on the industry, and this blog will attempt to answer the questions most asked by stylists about their tools.

Questions and feedback are welcome. This blog will ideally be a discussion about things stylists are interested in, and to answer questions in a fair, open, and balanced way for the reader.
