T.Oyunjargal: I get strength from my scissors
Hairdresser and owner of the Eco Beauty hair salon, T.Oyunjargal, known to her customers as Daagii, has a very special hobby connected to her profession. Daagii talked about her hobby: collecting scissors.
-Which is the most expensive pair of scissors you have?
-The scissors I last bought in South Korea cost about one million MNT. Though the customers don’t know this, hair that is cut with good scissors is unlikely to get split ends. A hairdresser has to have good scissors. I don’t mind spending a lot of money when I come across good scissors.
-Do you give scissors to your students as gifts?
-I have given many pairs of my scissors to my favourite students who made me proud. Some people believe that because scissors have blades they are not suitable as presents. But I think that scissors are symbols of strength. But I no longer give my scissors away. I will soon begin putting them in glass display units at my salon in Zaisan.
-How long do you use one pair of scissors for?
-The blades of the scissors become sharper every time you use them. So they can be used for long time. But they break if they are dropped even once. I get my scissors repaired in South Korea. They repair them very well, like they are almost new. Most of my scissors are made in Japan. Russia and Japan are the leading manufacturers of steel items in the world. Hence Korean hairdressers use Japanese scissors.
Hairdressers’ scissors have many different types and differ from each other for their purposes. Daagii has different pairs of scissors for straight cuts, short bob cuts and so on, and even has a hairdressing comb that costs 50 USD.
-It looks very simple, it is unbelievable that this comb costs 50 USD.
-Yes. This comb has centimetres measures on it. Very few were manufactured and every tooth was carefully handmade. That’s why it is so expensive. This comb can easily detangle any kind of hair without damaging it.
