OBU Trade Media Release
With names like The Outlaw and The Lover, it is obvious from your first interaction with OBU, that these are no ordinary hairdressing scissor.
Now available in Australia through the Three Six Five Salon Group, manager John Pizzey says, ‘OBU professional hairdressing scissors are a great addition to our portfolio of trusted brands. OBU’s philosophy is so aligned with our own – giving hairdressers great service and products that we are proud to stand behind’.
OBU’s website states: ‘Smooth and uncomplicated. Your relationship with OBU will be like no other’. This claim is generously supported by a Lifetime Quality Guarantee, Free Shipping and 7 day returns.
Pizzey reiterates ‘we wanted a beautifully designed scissor range that provides our clients with quality tools of trade at reasonable prices. It’s all about helping every hairdresser to deliver a great in-salon experience and we knew that OBU would do this.’
‘We love the OBU philosophy. It really reflects that great Japanese combination of simplicity and quality,’ Pizzey enthuses. ‘The handcrafted Japanese steel OBU Masuta range is stunning to look at, and to use. We also have the thoughtful Minarai Apprentice range which provides accessibility for those starting out or needing a back-up pair of high quality scissors. Made from premium steel alloys, the scissors are really sharp - in fact I had one of the team suggest that band aids may need to be part of the standard apprentice kit!’
OBU’s curated range and pricing structure is aimed at making selection simple and accessible to all budgets. With single OBU scissors starting from $299, and sets from $399 this certainly seems to be the case.
‘We have received great feedback from those using OBU. The quality and value is being well received, says Pizzey, but I think what OBU owners are being quite drawn to is that every OBU has a personality and style that they can identify with.’
Six inches of Japanese steel you won’t want to keep your hands off. The description of The Lover seems to be spot on.
