News 100 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2018 —Emilie Branch Subscribe and Shear Just 150 days after launching, Rock Paper Shears, a subscription mailing service for styling shears, celebrated a major milestone—it now has customers in all 50 states. This is more than a business benchmark; it proves that stylists are always in need of top-quality tools. Subscribers to Rock Paper Shears opt into a four- or six-month program, mailing back their dull tools before starting a new cycle. The service starts at $11 per month, which includes sharpening and round-trip shipping. It's a total game-changer, considering that shears typically average from $300 to $800. "We're humbled and overwhelmed by the response and support from our subscribers, as well as from salon operators who have embraced our program as a low-cost quality control," says founder Pat Lazure. "Stylists can fi nally stop accumulating shears that they don't use. Instead, stylists need only pay for shears that they actually use, while the bothersome task of having their shears sharpened is forever checked off their to-do lists."
