Get your FREE tension guide

Hey hair pros! We all know that tension is the key to keeping your scissors performing at their best. Finding the correct tension on a pair of scissors is crucial in stopping your scissors from blunting or wearing down. Good news! Leaf Scissors have released a handy guide to help you check and adjust your tension. 

The guide is completely free to download by clicking the link below and signing up on the Leaf website. The document will take you through the step-by-steps of checking the tension of your scissors, identifying if the tension is too loose or too tight and then adjusting the tension to the perfect amount. As well as this handy guide Leaf makes it even easier for hairdressers to adjust the scissors themselves with a tension key included in every order. 

Leaf has also said that if you perhaps ordered your tools a while ago and didn’t receive a tension key you should send them an email or a direct message, request your free tension key and they’ll get it sent out to you.
