Winners Announced in OBU X INSTYLE Scissor and Subscription Giveaway

Drumroll please… four lucky winners have been named in INSTYLE’s recent partnership and giveaway with OBU Scissors, a new tools brand taking the industry by storm. Entrants simply had to follow both brand’s Instagram pages, like particular posts and tag their friends to share the news of these new innovative tools, and amidst so many entries, four winners have been given a two year INSTYLE subscription and a pair of premium Japanese steel OBU scissors of their choice, all to the total value of $850 each.

Congratulations to @hairmaster.bon @patelmazovski and @trinnnnnnnity. Direct message INSTYLE to claim your prize! For those who didn’t win, you’re still in luck, with a special INSTLYE code (iSmDX4388) that offers a $100 discount at checkout until the end of November.

OBU offers tool names such as The Outlaw and The Lover, cementing themselves as the sphere’s new cool kids and promising more than an ordinary pair of scissors. The brand is available in Australia through Three Six Five Salon Group.

“OBU professional hairdressing scissors are a great addition to our portfolio of trusted brands,” said Three Six Five Salon Group manager John Pizzey. “OBU’s philosophy is so aligned with our own – giving hairdressers great service and products that we are proud to stand behind. 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.”

OBU also offers a Lifetime Quality Guarantee, free shipping and seven day returns, with a curated range and pricing structure that hopes to be accessible to all budgets.

“We have received great feedback from those using OBU. The quality and value is being well received,” John said. “I think what OBU owners are being quite drawn to is that every OBU has a personality and style that they can identify with.”

“We love the OBU philosophy. It really reflects that great Japanese combination of simplicity and quality,” he continued. “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!”
