Over 90% of hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists in the United States are women.

Over 98% of shears companies are owned by men.

Hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists everywhere needed a familiar face in the shears industry.

Leadership representation from both sides is paramount to continued growth in the industry.


We are, who our community is.

Our entire team of educators is comprised of stylists and barbers who work behind the chair every single day.

Hair is their passion, sharing valuable knowledge is their mission.

Ivy Ann's many years of hard work and dedication behind the chair forged a vision of an informed community.

A community striving to educate their peers on the benefits of true Japanese craftsmanship.

We educate thousands of stylists every year on the ins and outs of shears.

From basic components and maintenance to identifying steel types and blade styles, we cover all aspects of cutting.

By pairing cutting techniques with each blade style, our educators not only teach how those blades work but also why they work.

Specific cutting techniques paired with the proper tools help stylists achieve effortless cuts.

With our education-first approach, we are setting profit margins aside to ensure empowering stylists is always priority number one.

Growing an educated community elevates the industry as a whole.

We strive to put the power back in stylists' hands through transparency and education.

Crafted from locally sourced raw materials, we import our shears directly from the creator and manufacturer of ATS-314 stainless steel.

Our entire line of shears is cold-forged from only the highest quality ATS-314 stainless in the City of Swords.

Our manufacturers have the knowledge and expertise to serve our customers high standards, ensuring they are never disappointed.

Craftsmanship with the greatest degree of precision and care ensures our tools withstand even the harshest conditions.

Ivy Ann Professional Shears are built to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.


Every stylist should have the opportunity to work with quality tools, ensuring the greatest service possible to their clients.

By providing exceptional service on a consistent basis without downtime due to dull blades, an industry professional

can ensure repeat clientele willing to pay top industry prices.


Whether you’re a first-time buyer or already a member of our dedicated and supportive community,

you can count on us to provide great products and excellent service every step of the way.

While we aim to provide exceptional products, we also strive to help others with problems greater than our own.

Ivy Ann Professional Shears holds events at local salons around the country, inviting the local community to donate hair.

This donation directly benefits Wigs for Kids, a nonprofit that provides free wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
