Hair Cutting Shears are defined by their composition, sleek look, and variety of models to choose from. There are now a wide range of shears for anyone from cosmetology students to seasoned professionals. Hair Shears can be made to fit the smallest hands, as well as the largest barbers fingers. You can customize the fit by inserting finger ring sizers, choosing shears with an ergonomically shaped handle, or by choosing the shears that are the correct length for your hands.
There are also different types of Hair Cutting Shears for different cutting techniques. Maybe you are doing some trimming around the ears or some point-cutting, you should probably be using a shorter pair of shears. You don’t need a long blade to do this type of cutting. You should have a pair of 5 inch shears for that. Lets say you are a barber, and you are doing some scissor over comb work to even out the top. For this type of cutting, you are going to need a longer pair of shears to get the job done more efficiently and cut down on fatigue. You should have a 6.5 inch shear for this. The longer blade is essential for even cutting, and will cut the time you spend on each client down to a minimum. All hair stylists know, the faster you get the client out of your chair, the more clients you will see in a day. More clients means more money. More clients also means happier clients, because they can get a fabulous haircut and style in a minimal amount of time.
Efficiency is a big part of the game when it comes to cutting hair. By owning the correct hair cutting shears for each type of cut you are doing, you will be more efficient and a happier hairdresser. How many different pairs of hair cutting shears do you have? As a minimum, we recommend having 3 different styling shears, as well as two pair of texturizing/thinning shears.
A Scissor Story:
Searching far and wide for the top of the line hair scissors is one of the top challenges a hair stylist faces in today’s workplace. Usually you start out in beauty college with a cheap pair of hair scissors. The beauty school, especially chain schools like PMTS, will tell you that they can supply you with all the tools you need to move forward with your career in hairdressing. They give you some shears that are decent enough to get you through beauty school. But how long can you keep using these shears? Are they meant to Last Forever? Of course not!
By the time you graduate from cosmetology school, you have been using your shears quite a bit. Chances are you haven’t ever had them sharpened, and most likely the school didn’t teach you how to maintain your shears. To a hairdresser, hair shears are the most important tool. Not your hairdryer, your combs and brushes, or even the chair your clients sit in. Many hair stylists overlook this aspect of their job. How is a stylist supposed to give a client the best haircut if the shears being used are not maintained properly? Did you know that over 90% of Split-Ends are caused by dull shears?
As a hair stylist, don’t you owe it to yourself and your clients to use the best tools possible? If you are still using your shears from beauty school, do yourself a favor and buy new shears today! Your clients will thank you and your job will be easier too. Hair scissors should be your first purchase when you begin working at a Hair Salon after beauty school. Did you know that auto mechanics spend over $20,000 on their tools? They have no choice because without the proper tools to perform their job to their best ability, they would not even have a job to start with. Hairdressers need to take this into consideration when working on hair. Your hair shears should be looked at as an investment in yourself and your career.
