    • I read an interesting article on hair cutting scissor holsters so I was interested to see what other accessories help barbers and stylists protect their scissor sets and barber shears. The oil pen makes lots of sense but I’m not sure how a texturizing razor fits into the scheme of things. LOL.

I really like the hairdresser scissor toolbox and think it would make a great gift for any hairstylist you know. The leather scissor wallet looks like a good idea for someone who is just carrying a few scissors.
