Choosing the best hairdressing scissors

You use your scissors on a daily basis, so it’s important to invest in the best hairdressing scissors available.

Cutting should be comfortable and effortless, so you need quality. Scissors must be sharp, precise and designed to minimise fatigue in your hands and fingers.

Most stylists have several pairs of scissors for different kinds of cutting. Some stylists prefer short scissors; others like them longer. It depends on the size and shape of your hands and the type of cutting you’re doing.

Scissors are measured from the tip of the blade to the end of the longest finger hole, not including a finger rest if there is one.

Scissors have two styles of blade: bevelled and convex (or Japanese style). Bevelled blades are made from a mix of metals and are lightweight. Convex blades are sharper and have a razor-like edge. Your professional hair salon scissors should be sharpened at least once a year and usually more often.

It’s important to choose a handle design that’s comfortable for you. The three most common are:

  • classic, level or even handle (symmetrical handles)
  • offset handle (one handle is longer)
  • crane handle (similar to offset but with a very straight top handle).

Offset handles can help relieve tension in the muscles of the arm, neck and shoulders. Some scissors have clip-in finger rings for comfort.

Most salon-quality scissors are made from strengthened stainless steel or Japanese stainless steel. The handles are often coated for comfort or made from lighter alloys.

You can add a touch of style and glitz to your salon with innovative designs and embellished salon-quality scissors. Our selection includes a variety of high-tech, rainbow-colour coatings and diamanté detailing.

Professional salon scissor kits

For precise cutting and detailing, you should invest in a complete salon scissor kit with all the scissors you require.

The best salon scissor kits include straight cutting scissors, thinning scissors and a razor with a blade. You can buy a set that comes in a pouch or build up your collection over time and buy a separate bag or pouch.
