Beat the taxman and hold on to your cash by being sure to place your order before 4th January!

Season’s Greetings to all!!

When the scent of clementines & mulled wine are in the air you know that the year is drawing to a close. Time to put your scissors down, go home and put your feet up for a few days.

Although our website will be operating throughout the holiday season, our offices will be closed on the following days. Staff will be available to answer calls and process orders during normal working hours (9am-6pm) of the open days between Christmas and New Year’s.

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.
