Candy sees anywhere from 20-30 clients every day! She works with a handful of talented assistants, however, she couldn’t do what she does without the tools to complete the job! Candy uses these tools on a daily basis to create beautiful works of art!
Her tried and true shear is the French 7” curved shear. 7 inches may sound like hedge cutting shears if you're used to the short British shears, but these shears are designed to saw hair, not snip hair. It's also ergonomically designed to help prevent carpal tunnel since the holes are large enough to sit at the base of the fingers. Check out these shears in action!
Nothing is more satisfying in a haircut than to see the movement come into play. Candy loves her French 42 tooth texturizing shears for this purpose. Whether she is removing bulk, or adding texture, this texturizing shear is the best! She is able to cut interior (building weight) or exterior (removing weight) just by placing the teeth on the top or the bottom.
Does anyone have those clients whose hair is so thick that no matter how much texturizing you do, it just does not seem to be enough? That is where the French chunking shears come to the rescue! Candy will use these to really add some texture and remove unnecessary bulk from haircuts. The chunking shear is able to give that razored effect, without causing the frizziness that can sometimes come with other texturizing shears.
Candy has been asked before, what is the one tool she would take with her if she were stranded on an island. Most people are surprised by her answer: Clippers. Here at Jamison Shaw, the clippers are something that we use more than most would think and why not? They are quick, accurate and it can guarantee a straight line every time!
And that’s it! Now granted, some cases cause her to use other tools to get the job done, however, these four tools are Candy Shaw’s go-to’s. Go to our SHOP page and check the tools out yourselves and see what difference it can make behind your chair!
