Leaf Scissors shape future hairdressers

Sustainable hairdressing tools company Leaf Scissors is helping future stylists get the most out of hairdressing education by donating its scissors to a ground-breaking training initiative. Renowned hair educator, Paul Falltrick is reigniting a UK-based training academy in partnership with Ministry of Hair and Leaf Scissors have kindly agreed to gift repurposed scissors to ensure the students can learn with the best possible equipment. 

As every hairdresser knows, scissors are one of the biggest and most important investments in their kit bag, yet many young stylists simply can’t afford the premium price point. Leaf Scissors want this brand-new collaborative approach to encourage a willingness to work together and make this already amazing industry, an even better place to work and learn. 

“As a leading educator, there is nothing worse than teaching new techniques and precision cutting only to watch the hair ‘bend’ because of poor equipment,” said Paul Falltrick. “This donation from Leaf Scissors will give young underprivileged stylists a huge step forward in their career, helping them learn with the best possible equipment and in turn, helping to boost confidence during their training.”

Leaf Scissors Founder, Steve McManus added, “We believe that every hairdresser should have access to the highest quality tools and equipment. We offer our tools on a subscription basis, which makes them more affordable to all. At the end of the subscription, people usually upgrade and return their old pair to us, for us to re-use and help others. We are excited to be working with Paul Falltrick and the MOH academy by gifting their students some of our re-purposed scissors, which can help them learn and grow their hairdressing skills.” 

This is the hairdressing gift that keeps on giving and we take our hats off to Leaf Scissors for spreading the sustainable joy!
