In-Salon Scissor Sharpening

We are based in Yorkshire/ Lancashire and County Durham/ Tyne and Wear areas; however, we operate throughout mainland UK. In an attempt to incorporate our travel expenses, our In-Salon service may be subject to a minimum number of scissors per visit, according to your location.

Each scissor takes approximately 15 minutes to service but this is dependant on the scissor condition and style of edge required (Japanese/ European).. To ensure that we are providing the highest levels of service, our clients can then try their scissors immediately for quality of workmanship.

In salon

< Our in-salon sharpening setup.

Our machine is quiet (easily quieter than hairdryers) and quite safe and so we could be located in a public area. In fact we have found it to be a great talking point for clients, especially when discussing the cost of replacement scissors! .

One to one scissor care advice

During our in-salon service, you can receive professional scissor care advice, helping you get the very best out of your scissors for longer.

Booking Enquiry

Please note this is not an online booking form, we will confirm any and all booking enquiries.

* Please note we may contact you from time to time only regarding your scissors, and we DO NOT share any of your details with third part companies.

We, at Toni & Guy Exeter, have used the ‘In Salon’ service on two occasions. As hairdressers, we all know that our scissors are are very important to us (and expensive!) So to finally find someone, who you trust to maintain your scissors is fantastic! On the last visit to our salon, 20 pairs of scissors were sharpened, and everyone was happy with the service! We have also used the postal service in the past, with great results too. We at Toni & Guy Exeter recommend ‘Clean-Cut’ The results to your tired scissors are amazing!

Jamie Hughes » Toni & Guy, Exeter.

After dropping a pair of well loved scissors i thought they were beyond repair, so after debating should i buy a new pair i decided to see if they could be fixed, i rang the guys at clean-cut and was ever so pleased that they would come to my home as they do call out service. believe me i thought they were destroyed beyond repair and also did he. Well he went on with the repair worried that they might break i was impressed with the time he spent and professionalism he showed to the skill. I now have a pair of sharp rebalanced scissors, Thank you you saved me a packet

I have used Jonnys services in scissor sharpening now for some time, and i would definitely recommend him to anyone who wishes to have their scissors sharpening in a professional way.Jonny was recommended to me a long time ago after various disasters.Keep up the good work,many thanks.

I had a pair of Matsuzaki scissors which had been previously poorly sharpened and i didn’t think there was any chance they could be rejuvenated. But now they cut like new.

Gareth Vance » Senior Creative Director, Sassoon, Leeds.

I’d just like to comment and say how impressed with Johnny Baker’s workmanship. I use Mizutani Acro Knife scissors costing £1000; the week before his visit someone else ruined my scissors and now there back to new. I have never trusted anyone before with my scissors until now. Nice to see your opening statement on the website says ‘giving confidence back to hairdressers’ this is very true. thank you.

John » Amanda Eastwood Hairdressing, Clitheroe.

Received my scissors today (Saturday). I only sent them wednesday, such a quick turn around! My scissors are like brand new! Thank you!

Thank you so much for sharpening my 3 pairs of scissors. I normally use the manufacturer’s in-house sharpening service but i must say this time they’ve come back as good as new. I will definitely recommend you to other hairdressers and will be using your services again.
