Awards season is upon us and @shawnesssss has been as busy as can be in the thick of it, which didn’t prevent  her from creating this fabulous clip for everyone with a bts sneak peak. We’re grateful and we love you for it.  Time gets away on us but I can assure you that we want so much more to do with this amazing artist and to get to know her a whole more.  Can’t wait for more of Kristen’s work. Here’s what she did to prepare Calum Worthy for the Critics Choice Awards.

Take the strain off your wrist and hand with the all new ZK18-STORM 🌩️🌪️
If you like point cutting or want to be able to do it with ease then the STORM has to be your go-to shear.  The crane handle is angled to perfection so that the shear tips into point cutting with absolutely no effort.  Scissor-over-comb is also a breeze.  These shears easily allow your wrist to get to the perfect angle for a perfect blend of scissor-over-comb every time! Cutting perfectly straight lines is also a task that the ZK18-STORM  performs with ease! Slice, slide, chip and detail with surgical precision. Do it all in ultra comfort with the Storm’s 3D handles which are designed to fit pretty much all hand like a glove!  The balance of the scissor is so perfect - lightweight yet powerful and crafted to perfection with Japanese ATS-314 💪🏼✨💫⚔️✂️

✨Want to see what some of the very best shears in the world look like?✨
Meeting people like Sergio is the best part of our job… We’re so impressed by his understanding in how to choose shears but not only that, to choose some of the best of the best… He asked the right questions such as material, design purpose, maker, designer, owner of the company… What a revelation this impressive young man is! 
Each of these questions are crucial in choosing high quality shears.  Particularly “Are the owners of Zen hairdressers/barbers and for how long?” 
I was floored by this question (in a good way) The answer is that we’ve been in the industry for 36 years.  Twenty eight of those years were spent doing hair in our own high end salons and barber shops, educating, working doing hair in Films, TV, magazines, runway and well over twenty years of designing and selling Zen Master… We know high quality scissors, alloys, Japanese craftsmanship and how each type of metal feels on hair. 
There is a lot to learn and know about shears to really become outstanding at your craft of cutting hair. Let’s face it not all shears are created equal. And if you don’t have the depth of knowledge required, then you have us! We will guide you!  I can’t even tell you how many thousands of times I’ve heard, “Sam, I just want a killa pair of shears, which ones do you recommend?” It’s at this point that we go to work.  Asking you questions and then helping you choose the very best scissors for the type of work that you do or want to be able to do.  We can do this in person or over the phone or video with you and we love it!! 
It’s always fantastic when people call us some time after they’ve bought our scissors and say OMG these shears are insane!!! Iiiii freakin’ loVe them! And thank you for shipping them out to me so fast! 
For us there is nothing more gratifying.  We’re here for you and our reputation is stellar.  DM, call or text for advice or for us to come to your salon.
To learn more about the shears in this video, check them out on our website. The link is in our bio. You can find the Damascus Sword & Signature shear in the Grand Zen Master range on our website 💫💎✂️
The VORTEX ⚔️💫
Built to last with the highest quality engineering, the Vortex put the Oo in SmOoth. The ball bearing screw system combined with the Teflon ride and the material used on the blades are the details responsible for the incredibly smooth feels. 
Ultra sharp and ultra clean lines is what you’ll get with the VORTEX… and the standout feel of smoothness with every stroke. Every single detail on the Vortex screams quality - right down to the bumper! 

You have to remember that we were extremely accomplished hairdressers and barbers for over 28 years.  We know great shears when we use them and this one was designed to have everything great about it for an unbeatable price at this high level of quality… The word SMOOTH has come up several times in this description and it’s because it’s the one thing we keep saying every time we pick it up.  We can’t help but to WOW at it! We’re kind of obsessed with it quite frankly!

Available in the two most popular sizes 6’ and 6.5’. 

Find it in the Grand Zen Master range of our website or @saloncentric marketplace 

If you’re ready for an upgrade, then you Have to consider the Vortex for years and years of cutting pleasure 💫✂️
