Excellent day for Matakki Scissors hosting Simon Shaws’ PROJECT MEN 2022 Team as their official sponsors alongside Captain Fawcett and media partners BarberEVO Magazine.
Special thanks to Matakki’s Ambassadors and collaborators Marcus King, Michael Andrew Veitch, Dale Hince, Rhys Whitehouse and George Pearson

Matakki scissors comments: “We would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of our ambassadors and friends who came to see us in our home turf!  An amazing day at @marieclarehair with the members of @fellowshipprojectmen plenty of scissor talk, laughs and mixing with a great group of people!  We got to talk about what matters to us, including of course scissors, but servicing and aftercare alike. We would like to extend our best wishes for all Project Men members. What a group of talented and interesting individuals. We know this is just the start of an amazing journey for you all!”

Janene Hawkins Bush commented: "What an amazing day in a fabulous venue!  Education on point from Emma and her team from Matakki scissors, the company history and ethics totally shone through, passion for what they do is infectious and the knowledge they have is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced from a scissor company."

Blayre Turnbull commented: “The day with Matakki Scissors, was another yet amazing day in the project men line up.  From learning everything there is to know about scissors and the benefits of good quality steel was eye opening. In the afternoon we watched some demonstrations from Marcus King, Rhys Whitehouse and Dale Hince and the information I got from them will help me to further advance my own career.”

Emma Simmons comments: “Such a great ending to a brilliant year. So inspiring to see the passion Emma has for the Matakki brand and ensuring hairdressers get the best out of their scissors. I’ve Used scissors for the last 26years and never realised how much was involved in maintaining them! Loved the day, enjoyed it so much, but a little sad that that’s our last meeting.”

Roisin Murphy added: “The final team day was really interesting. We met with the team from Matakki scissors and learnt all the different aspects that go into making good quality scissors. it was lovely to learn about the brand and see how much knowledge and care they have for this industry. We had brand ambassadors showcase different haircuts with all Mattakki tools.  Loved it.”
