Here are key features and aspects of professional hairdressing scissors and thinners to consider:

Professional Hairdressing Scissors:

Blade Types:
  • Convex Blades: Many professional scissors feature convex blades, which are razor-sharp and provide a smooth, clean cut. This design allows for precision and is favoured by many hairstylists.
  • Beveled Blades: Beveled blades are durable and suitable for general cutting. They are often easier to sharpen than convex blades.
Blade Length:
  • Cutting Shears: These are the primary scissors used for cutting hair and come in various lengths, ranging from 5 to 7 inches. Shorter blades offer more control, while longer blades allow for quicker cutting.
Handle Design:
  • Offset Handles: Offset handles have a design where the thumb handle is shorter than the finger handle. This ergonomic design reduces strain on the hand and wrist during prolonged use.
  • Swivel Thumb: Some scissors have a swivel thumb feature, allowing the thumb ring to rotate. This design enhances comfort and flexibility.
Material:
  • Stainless Steel: High-quality stainless steel is commonly used for professional scissors. It provides durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of maintenance.
Adjustable Tension Screw:
  • Professional scissors often have an adjustable tension screw that allows hairstylists to customize the tightness or looseness of the blades based on their preference.
Finger Rest:
  • A removable or integrated finger rest provides additional comfort and control during cutting.

Professional Hair Thinning Scissors (Thinning Shears):

Tooth Design:
  • Standard Thinning Shears: These have evenly spaced teeth and are used for general thinning and blending.
  • Texturizing Shears: These have unevenly spaced teeth, creating a more textured and layered result.
Blade Type:
  • Single-Edge Thinning Shears: These have teeth on only one blade, providing a softer blend.
  • Double-Edge Thinning Shears: Both blades have teeth, allowing for more aggressive thinning.
Percentage of Thinning:
  • Thinning shears come in various percentages (e.g., 20%, 30%) to indicate the amount of hair they will remove. Higher percentages remove more hair with each cut.
Material and Construction:
  • Similar to cutting shears, thinning shears are made from high-quality stainless steel and may have convex or bevelled blades.
Adjustable Screw:
  • An adjustable screw allows hairstylists to control the tension of the thinning shears for optimal performance.

Maintenance and Care:

Cleaning and Lubrication:
  • Regular cleaning and lubrication with scissor oil are essential to prevent rust and ensure smooth operation.
Sharpening:
  • Professional scissors and thinners should be sharpened regularly by a skilled professional to maintain their cutting performance.
Storage:
  • Store scissors in a protective case or holster to prevent damage to the blades and maintain their sharpness.

Investing in high-quality, professional-grade hairdressing scissors and thinners is crucial for hairstylists and barbers to deliver precise and impeccable haircuts while minimizing strain and fatigue during extended use. Regular maintenance and proper handling contribute to the longevity and effectiveness of these essential tools.
