Workshop Heroes – Tools that get the job done!
  • 2011-02-24 (Thu)
  • ALL


We are proud to offer the best scissor service this side of Tokyo.

Sometimes our pride spills over into a certain manic obsession and we end up spending hours sweating over scissors that have been sent in to us in a state of desrepair. Making new parts for vintage scissors that are no longer available, excavating screw parts that have broken off inside the screw hole, recreating blade edges that have been destroyed beyond recognition… secretly we enjoy a good challenge.

Its not just skill & experience that does the job. Its the tools we use!

Most of the tools we use are home made. Here’s one of our workshop heroes. We call it “Bendy” (imaginative!) because it realigns scissors by gradually altering the angle of the blades.

If you think you have a pair of scissors that you think are beyond help, don’t chuck them! Give us a try first!

ISSE 2011 @ Long Beach, CA



The International Salon & Spa Expo kicked off another promising year for the hair and beauty industry in sun-kissed California. More people than ever descended on Long Beach for the largest West Coast event of the year!

Passion Beauty proved to be one of the busiest traders of the show selling out of numerous products early on in the show. Those lucky enough to make it to the booth early on were treated to amazing scissor deals and exclusive new products like  the YS PARK Tortoise paddle brush. Popular products were the new YS PARK LAP 32 brushes and the Stretch Collars.

Many thanks to everyone for visiting our booth!

Next stop… Bologna Cosmoprof!

Here’s To A Fresh Start!

Out with the old and in with the new!

In Japan,  we  look forward to the new year by waiting for the first sun rise and watching the first light creep over the horizon with our friends or family. This is usually followed with a visit to the local shrine to cleanse the spirit and ask for good fortune in the new year. Following that is a lot of drinking, eating and general merriment. I guess some things are the same everywhere!

Over here in West London we have enjoyed our winter break and are planning great things for 2011. We have a lot of exciting new products in the pipeline which we’ll keep you updated on. As usual we look to your suggestions and opinions to improve our current and upcoming lines!

Happy New Year everybody and wishing you a great 2011!!

P.S. Our office is now fully open and operating normal working hours (Mon-Fri 9am-6pm)

New! YASAKA scissors added at last!


To be honest we have a love/hate relationship with YASAKA scissors here at Passion scissors HQ.

Wherever we go we meet Yasaka “fans”. Whether its in Bologna at the Cosmoprof show or in good old Blackpool for the Hair & Beauty show, there are stylists that bring in 15 pairs of Yasaka scissors (“Yes they’re all mine!”) for sharpening and lets not forget the guy that brings his “vintage” 12 year old 5.5inch Yasaka Levelset with blades that are needle-thin from years of service. Our Yasaka customers are very quick to choose the scissors they want (“I’ll have the same again please!”) and look bewildered when we suggest they might try something new this time (“But its not a Yasaka?”).

Although we can’t quite put our finger on the reason for the die-hard loyalty, it just shows that the Yasaka has a special appeal that lasts through many generations. So, in the spirit of keeping up with the times we have made the Yasaka available online.

New! YS Park LAP32 Air Cushion Brush



A new addition to the YS PARK brush family!

Unique features include the flexible bristle pad & rounded bristles which allows for a scalp tingling sensation when brushing. Even a gentle brushing stimulates blood circulation making it an ideal tool for hair restoration treatments or a stress-busting scalp massage.

It features all the characteristic YS PARK trademark features such as the air holes for fast blow drys and sculpted body for fantastic handling. Fantastic pro tool for the salon but also a great gift as an everyday brush!

Mondial Coiffure Beaute Paris + OMC Hairworld 2010


An incredible number of visitors (early rumours stand at 100,000 visitors!) attended the MCB Paris show this year. The show was held over 3 days (6-8 Nov) at the impressive Paris Expo in Porte de Versailles in partnership with the semi-annual OMC Hairworld.

PASSION scissors were represented by EUROPASSION S.A.R.L (our French buddies) who were hugely successful selling our scissors along with the YS PARK combs and brushes. The Passion Scissor Service was sharpening scissors non-stop over the whole weekend catering to satisfied customers from around the world.

The fastest selling products were the Passion Damascus range and YS PARK LAP 32 brushes. While the combs sold out completely, the new YS PARK stretch collars proved to be just as popular as at the London show in October.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to visit us!

Thankyou for visiting us at Salon Int 2010!
