How do I select the right hairdressing scissors?
As a hairdresser, your hair cutting scissors is one of the most essential tools as you will be using them for hours in the salon. It is important that they are comfortable and do not cause your hands to be fatigued. Hand fatigue can be the root of other problems such as Repetitive Strain Injury and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Choosing the right scissors can also come down to the style you are working with.
Professional hair scissors come in a variety of sizes, so you need a size that works best with your hand size and ensure the best possible grip and precision. Scissor handles can come in an offset handle which has one handle longer than the other. This allows for your arm and elbow to be in a lower position and a better alignment and positioning of the blade. A crane handle is similar, except the top handle is straight and allows for lower elbow position.
In terms of blades, there are two types you can choose from: bevelled edge or convex edge. Bevelled edge blades are sloped for a steeper angle and convex blades are milled to a fine point that creates a smooth thin cutting edge. Scissors are available in left-handed or right-handed options and different warranty is applied depending on the brand.
