Choosing You Hair Scissors

October 22nd, 2011

Experts have their opinions on different types of hair scissors. Some stylists live by the shears they use because of the comfort provided with each pair. Others say the sharpness really is the main thing that influences the performance of their shears. After hearing too many opinions, it can get confusing to narrow down your options and also frustrating when you’re trying to get going.

No one knows your hair better than you, so don’t be afraid to experiment with shears that you think will work. Start by window shopping at different websites or even hair supply stores. Keep in mind the true meaning of window shopping: browsing at many types of products without spending a penny! This means that no matter where you go, pick up a few pros and cons of each pair of hair scissors you find. Later on you can compare each pair and narrow down your top few choices.

Some of the pros and cons you should be looking for include durability, warranty, longevity, cost, and most importantly what others think of them. Durability is so important when it comes to looking for key features in shears. This is because if you are going to invest in a pair of nice hair trimming tools, you surely would like them to be able to withstand about anything. If the shears are determined and guaranteed to cut at their sharpest ability, take them into consideration. If you’re not sure, ask the sales representative at the store or look up reviews on the internet.

Warranties should be checked on just in case something would happen to your scissors. Whether you own a small shop or travel worldwide for hair competitions, you’re always running the risk of loosing or getting your scissors stolen. Warranties and/or guarantees are what make it possible for you to keep your shears at your hand no matter what happens to them.

The amount of time your shears will last you is definitely crucial. If others have said their shears have broken, rusted, or dulled out on their performance within the first five years of use you should definitely move on to a new pair. Hair scissors were designed for salon professionals because they’re always looking for a product they can invest in once. They don’t want to have to keep buying a new pair because of quirks in the system, so be sure to ask around and see what others think about each brand.

Cost is an important factor in choosing the right pair of hair scissors, but be sure you’re not trying to get a steal on them. After all, these have to last you many, many years and you don’t want to buy one cheap pair every month. Although a quality pair of shears may cost at least $600, you know it’s worth it when you can trust that they will perform their job and will not need replaced regularly.

Choosing the right type of hair scissors can be hard but as long as you have a mind set, you can find the perfect fit. Don’t forget your key elements in narrowing down your choices. The best way to know is to ask around with other professionals or read reviews about the shears you think you might like best. This will definitely help in your decision to purchase the right pair of hair scissors.
