Hanzo Left-Handed Shears

An in-depth look at our complete line of left-handed scissors

Hanzo Left Handed Shears and Texturizers

Left handed hairstylists and barbers often face challenges when selecting the tools they need. Since only 10% of the population is left handed, many manufacturers simply overlook the needs of their left handed audience and default to producing right handed tools only.

At Hanzo, we believe that every stylist and barber needs the appropriate tool for their particular hand orientation. We offer a complement of eight of our most popular left-handed tools so you can accomplish any kind of cut or service. Hanzo even has swivel and high-carbon tools in a left-handed orientation! And there’s never a premium on left-handed tools–we believe in “pricing parity” for out shears regardless of hand orientation.

Left Handed Stylist
Collin Martin

Follow: @collinmartin_hair
An insatiable new figure in the world of platform artistry, Collin Martin has been creating multi-functional cuts with a keen eye while employing unconventional 3D sculpting for the past seven years. His peculiar approach to hair has, in the words of a colleague, “brought the avant-garde to the people.”Crediting his strong artistic background and over a decade of working with his hands, Collin has built, and demonstrates, a new philosophy concerning the inner workings of a haircut. From small classrooms to auditoriums, stylists, industry personnel, and enthusiasts have heard Collin’s voice trembling with visceral excitement as he openly dissects his approach to the structure of hairstyles—his “construction process”—and the tools he uses to create finery for his exclusive clientele. Collin graduated from Masters of Cosmetology, a Pivot Point Member School, in 2007. Upon obtaining his Master Educator’s License three years ago, he began doggedly chasing a new yet functional approach to hair manageability, from shampooing to finalized style. Depending on products such as Davines, Davines for Wizards, and Hattori Hanzo Shears, Collin continues to reinvent himself and his art across the continental United States.
