Most people tend to do their research on an expensive product before they commit to buying it. The same practice should also apply to your hairdressing scissors as it can be pricey to finance a pair of high-quality cutters. Here are some of the things you should do your research on before your next scissor purchase!
Different Types of Handles
It is extremely important that you choose the right type of scissor handle that will provide you with the utmost comfort and ease of use. Straight handles are designed for hairdressers who hold their scissors with their middle finger. However, this type of handle can potentially cause health issues such as Carpel Tunnel syndrome with prolonged usage. It may cause tension and strain your hand, wrist, shoulder and neck.
The offset handle allows the fingers to be positioned asymmetrically, which allows for a more natural finger rest that will keep your hands relaxed and comfortable. Crane handles are very similar to an offset handle but also allow you to drop your elbows for extra comfort. Offset and crane handles are usually the better options when it comes to choosing the best handle for your scissors.
The Perfect Length
Every hairstylist has a preference when it comes to choosing the length of their hairdressing scissor. Most cutters differ in length from 4.5 inches to 8 inches. A quick tip to choose a basic cutting tool is to measure the length of the blade against your middle finger and the distance of the whole scissor against your palms to make sure that they are the same size. This easy trick will allow you to find a
length that is most suitable to you. As a general guide, most female hairdressers typically use 5 to 5.5-inch scissors while men tend to enjoy scissors with 5.5 to 6-inch blades.
Modern hairdressing scissors now come with a whole load of different features, which give you a very comfortable and efficient cutting experience. Before you buy a pair of cutters next time, try researching the type of features you might want. We offer unique features such as swivel scissors, texturizing scissors and thinner scissors which will make your job a lot easier. We even offer left- handed models of our traditional cutters to cater to left-handed hairstylists!
Warranty and Exchange
As hairdressing scissors can be an expensive investment, it is important that you do your research and pick a retailer that offers flexible warranty and exchange terms. Returning and exchanging items can be difficult if your new purchase does not meet your expectations. When you do quick research on the terms of sale of the retailer you can easily avoid facing this issue in the first place.
