Anglo American Scissors Eyewear

National Hairstyle Appreciation Day is April 30. This day celebrates and honors hairstyles of all types and hairstylists who create them. We on the other hand want to appreciate eyewear designers who have created their own Scissor Shades.

The history of Eyewear actually starts out with the use of what they called Scissor Eyeglasses.  Two lenses that folded together just like scissors.
