You will also be sent a written test and two shears, one to be beveled and the other convex. You must know the difference. The convex edge shear my or may not be previously beveled by incorrect sharpening. You must re-convex this shear. The shears will NOT need parts nor will realigning be necessary to pass the test.

1) Cut through wet tissue

2) Cut through dry hair without pushing

3) Sharpened at the angle of your normal selection for the shear quality and a salon that cuts both dry and wet hair for a mixed clientele.

4) Quiet when opening and closing.
