Hair Cutting Shears: What to Look For?
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.
