  • They feature precision-sharpened blades specifically designed for hair cutting and styling.
  • Common handle types, such as offset and classic opposing, enhance ergonomics for comfortable control.

Investing in Your Hair Cutting Shears

The cost of hair cutting shears depends on several factors, including brand, style, and quality. For professionals, prices generally range between $200-800 USD ($300-1000 CAD), while for beginners or home use, scissors may cost anywhere between $50-150 USD ($100-250 CAD).

Your Guide to Purchasing New Shears

  • For Professionals: Pay close attention to the blade edge type (convex, bevel, flat, serrated, etc.) and the construction materials. High-quality steel signifies better blades and longevity.
  • For Students and Apprentices: Determine the ergonomic handle style and scissor size that best suits you. If you're a barber, a 7" long barber blade might be ideal for over-the-comb style haircutting techniques. The most common shear size is 6", suitable for most techniques.
  • For Home Use: Choose a reliable brand. Avoid extremely cheap options prone to rust. Brands like Jaguar and Mina are reputed for home-use scissors that offer years of durability.
