Slide Cutting Shears create partly a similar result to a razor sharp cut with your razor, but in other ways it's so much better. Razor cutting is recommended on wet hair and can result in split ends when the hair dry's. A slide cutting shear is suitable for wet and dry cuts and won't leave the client with split ends.

Other hair stylists would prefer to finish with these scissors on dry hair after the length has been cut off with traditional salon shears.
