    My detail brush!

    Posted by Carolyn B on 15th Apr 2019

    If the fireflys were a paint brush they would be a detail brush. The are for the finishing the style. The curve makes it great for around the ear. The slight upward curve of the blades makes it great for pieceing out the bang and fringe area without worry of the tip of the blade touching the client. It would be a finishing shear. You can do a whole haircut with it, but I would make it with smaller partings. Don't try to cut giant chunks of hair. Leave that to the shears with heavier blades. The shear itself and the handles are very light and comfortable.

    Love it, but be aware

    The Bonika Firefly is one of the most popular shears due to it’s unique comfortable handle, light weight and slim curved blades. However, there are some recommendations for using and maintaining this shear that will make your experience more enjoyable. 1)The Firefly is a detail shear designed primarily for point cutting, slide cutting, and finishing work. It is great for face framing and for cutting in design lines for men’s parts. It is not designed for cutting huge chunks of hair, heavy duty thick section straight cutting. It is a secondary specialty shear that normally used in conjunction with other more all purpose shears. The thin blades made encounter alignment issues if forced to cut large hair sections on a continuous basis. 2)The Firefly must be adjusted differently than other shears. The pivot screw must be tight. The adjustment should be that the handle and blade will not drop on their own without normal cutting pressure. 3)The sharpening of the Bonika Firefly can be a little tricky for many sharpeners. It will not void your warranty for another sharpener to sharpen these, but if your sharpener is unsure how to do these shears do not hesitate to send them back. You can share this video with your sharpener on Youtube on how the screw is to be reinstalled. Proper sharpening requires the shear to be taken apart to work the rideline. Because of the blade width gentle convex sharpening with low speeds and fine abrasives should be used and the two blades are sharpened at different angles for the most effective use in cutting. If your sharpener has any concerns he or she can contact Bonika Shears

    Bonika came to my school and let us try different shears. The Firefly shears fit in my hand like they were custom made for me, and they cut so smoothly. I knew immediately that I had to buy them. I also love that they have to be tightened all the way to get the proper cut, because now I don't have to spend forever trying to get the blades just right. I have them in the 5.5 length.

    I could never decide whether I loved my Firefly or my Fishbone shears more...then I bought (and fell in love with) my Shoto, now I am even MORE confused! #caughtinaBonikalovetriangle
