Yes, we have a large assortment of scissors, thinners, chunkers for both groomers and stylists.
The short answer is once every 1-2 years, but it depends on use.
If you’re a professional chef you’ll need to sharpen your knives more often than if you cook at home. The true test is to cut a tomato or a piece of paper. If the knife cuts easily your knife is still sharp. If there’s any drag or pull, it’s time for resharpening. Using  a knife sharpening stone, if used correctly in between professional sharpening appointments is a good way to keep a sharp edge.

Wipe scissors down with a soft cloth and apply a drop of scissor lubricant on both sides of the pivot point at the base of the blade of the scissor. 

Scissors require sharpening when a noticeable lack of cutting performance occurs.  Most times if hair is bending in the scissor it’s a good indicator it’s time to have your scissors sharpened.

That depends on how often you use them however some manufacturers recommend having your shears sharpened every three months.
