Stylist Leadership
In 1968, in his quest for hairstyling perfection, a world champion hairdresser created the very first Hikari scissors. His son, inspired by his father’s passion for artistic hairstyling, also became a renown, award-winning hairdresser and is now at the helm of Hikari. This accomplished stylist and his esteemed colleagues continue to conceive, develop, and test every Hikari feature and prototype. The Hikari difference begins with hands-on leaders who desire to share their craftsmanship and vision with others.

Complete Production Control
Hikari is one of the only fully integrated producers of haircutting scissors in the industry. Through this unique approach, Hikari exerts meticulous control over every aspect of its business, including research, development, design, production, quality assurance, and service. This is in sharp contrast to its competitors who“outsource” key operations and simply put their label on scissors mass-produced by independent factories. Hikari’s one-of-a-kind operation yields scissors of unrivaled quality and durability.


Constant Innovation
As the inventor of almost every high-end scissor innovation, Hikari is the standard by which all other scissors are measured. Many manufacturers have tried to duplicate the Hikari features, but only the originator can reliably produce its world-class scissors and maintain their optimal performance. Hikari’s pioneering spirit and dedication to excellence, evident in its scissors, cannot be imitated.

Trustworthy Recommendations
Hikari never compensates educators or platform artists to use, endorse, or recommend its products. It relies solely upon unsolicited, word-of-mouth referrals from delighted stylists and their clients. Hikari treasures the patronage of its loyal users and does not jeopardize their well-founded trust by promoting eye-catching features or utilizing marketing hype.
