SHEARPOLICE is a distributor of MIZUTANI brand shears, and YS PARK Combs and styling tools. We are an education-focused company that believes professional quality haircutting shears should be accessible without a high price tag.

With a background of over 20 years in RUSK Haircutting and education using RUSK Haircutting and Texturizing Shears, Jim Roberts aimed to elevate the quality and availability of education and professional haircutting shears. SHEARPOLICE was established to provide the highest quality in haircutting, styling tools, and education.

Understanding that the enemy of volume and movement in a haircut is weight, and that the efficiency and consistency of a haircut lie in the shears you choose, SHEARPOLICE is dedicated to offering top-notch products. Our team, with over two decades of experience in haircutting education, is committed to providing quality education.

SHEARPOLICE conducts in-salon haircutting demos and hands-on education for professional stylists and barbers. Our artistic team includes J. Roberts, Maggie O'Rourke Roberts, and Naz Kupelian.
