Established in the autumn of 2006 by fellow owner Gary Davies, Kreative Hair & Beauty Distribution Ltd was formed to import and distribute Japanese stainless steel hairdressing scissors.
The underlying goal was to identify a range of scissors which gave both excellent quality combined with value for money and hence Samurai Scissors were born.
In identifying its range the company sought the advice of senior hair stylists and tutors from within the industry. From an initial offering of over 200 designs and styles of scissor, the professionals chose a range of 41 pieces split into three distinct brands.
1.The Classic Pro range for the senior experienced stylist combines premium Japanese stainless steel with extreme sharpness and durability.
2.The Fusion range is a cool fashionable collection finished in a multi coloured coating in Japanese stainless steel, ideal for the up and coming salon professional.
3.The Matrix range of entry/trainer level scissor for the next generation of salon professional. Again made from Japanese stainless steel the range combines quality with value.
Once the range had been chosen they were then put to the ultimate challenge by a prestigious salon academy where they were subjected to rigorous testing and passed with flying colours.
From a new start up situation in late 2006 the Company has established itself within the hairdressing scissor market place with some of the most respected wholesalers and distributers in the UK, has exhibited with great success at Salon International, is advertising in the Hairdresser’s Journal and is consistently evolving its range of styles and sizes.
In 2007, the company welcomed its latest director, Gary Davies, who has taken a leading role as the Commercial Director of Kreative Hair & Beauty Distribution.
The Company will strive to make Samurai one of the leading brands within the hairdressing industry and based on this success, will expand its product offering over the next year into other markets.
