The DARE CHISEL is destined to become one of the 5 essential tools in every creative hair designer's kit alongside; the straight edged scissors, thinning shears, the razor and the electric clipper.

The Evolution of the Dare Chisel

Since the beginning of time mankind has created tools to make living easier. Constant innovation, modification and specialisation have made these human extensions we call tools available for every task in our modern world. Creative artisans have always developed or modified existing tools to suit a particular purpose- “necessity being the mother of invention” has made some of our most useful tools a reality.

Hairdressing history is filled with innovations, 'borrowed' or 'improved', to suit the modern hair designer’s repertoire of styles. The ice tempered steel scissors owe their beginnings to ancient Japanese sword making techniques. Titanium or ceramic blades and sophisticated alloys developed during the space race are considered the norm now. No obstacle has lasted long in the face of human inventiveness.

Many of the greatest inventions have started with a simple idea and the passion and persistence to develop them into user friendly devices-this is the case with DARE CHISEL. As new techniques developed to create the texture and movement that popularise current hair design internationally, Paul Dare of DARE HAIR saw the need for a new hairdressing tool that allowed the designer more sculptural freedom.

The idea for this revolutionary new design began in 1993 when Paul began experimenting with a variety of industrial blades in an attempt to find an alternative to conventional hair cutting tools. Paul found the wood chisel to be a most effective and versatile cutting implement, however, it proved to have its limitations.

Frequently Asked Questions

About the Dare Chisel

Why a hair chisel?

The hair chisel blade is 5 times thicker than a razor, resulting in greater texture. The chisel shape allows the stylist to chop through the hair rather than slice.

No, the chisel is a unique tool offering a different texture to the hair.


The chisel blade will last up to ten haircuts depending on hair texture.

Use of the Hair Chisel

Is the hair cut wet or dry?

Depending on the desired result, hair can be cut wet or dry. When using the chisel for the first time it is recommended to cut with the hair wet.
