How To Distinguish Between Authentic And Fake Hair Scissors

Producing and selling counterfeit scissors has become a multi-million dollar business. Usually counterfeiting facilities are from Pakistan and China. Consumers need to be educated on ways to detect counterfeit scissors before making a purchase. Nothing is 100% guaranteed but at least you'll be able to make an informative decision. Usually as first glance its difficult to tell if a product is authentic or fake. It's usually after you've started cutting with them you realize they maybe fake because of poor quality cuts.  

"Buyer beware" if the price is to good to be true and the same brand scissor from multiple dealers is selling at a much higher price. Some other tips  that will help ensure you're buying authentic scissors. Buy from a dealer you already know. Buy from an "authorized" dealer if your in question. Get referrals from others that have purchase the same scissor. Always get a sales receipt from the seller. Make sure the sales receipt contains their business name and complete address, with a phone number. It should contain the exact description of the scissor purchase. Check for logos and designs. Some scissors are serialized so you can always contact the manufacturer to verify the serial number. Look for patents or patents pending. Ask the seller for references from previous customers. Check the packaging carefully. This is where counterfeits are usually sloppy with trying to duplicate the package.
