Tondeo Rotating Shears: Carmelo Zammitto’s Universal Tool

Hair stylist and industrial designer Carmelo Zammitto been in the beauty industry for over 34 years as a master educator and has once again created a pioneer tool with Tondeo that can significantly improve performance behind the chair. 

His innovation holds a patent for his Rotation Design Ring, a feature of his Turn Heads Collection that is very highly recommend it for all Professional Industries and includes the 360 Rotation S and Rotation Free shears. The versatile shears offer increased styling control and reduce stylist fatigue.

Twist and turn while you cut without feeling restraint. The basis of the technology is the handle of The Rotation S shears, which pivot in 12 positions to increase cutting precision. The blades do not close completely, facilitating cutting techniques on wet or dry hair, including sliding, channeling and removing volume. The Rotation Free model rotates makes The Rotation Collection Scissors Universal use for right-handed and left-handed people with unlimited positioning and control for detailed cutting on wet or dry hair.

Due to the great response and success in the beauty industry I have considered expanding into the medical industry, since surgeons frequently have to open and close devices such as graspers, scissors, or clamps that may result in fatigue in multiple areas. 

In particular, I have focused on developing the most ergonomic system to reduce user fatigue and increase range of motion,” said Zammitto. “Realizing this potential I have reached out to surgeons who have overwhelmingly showed great interest in this technology.”

The ROTATION goes along with any movement. The eye rotates by 360° on the lower blade. The lock ensures that the eye remains in the required position when working. In the ROTATION Free version, the eye rotates free and facilitates ergonomic work. Zammitto offers cutting classes to train hairstylists on how to manipulate the tool for optimum results.

Zammitto’s shears are constructed of premium grade metals and are manufactured and distributed by Tondeo AG in Solingen, Germany. For more information, visit tondeo.com
