What do you need to know when buying a pair of cutting scissors?

  • Hair Cutting Scissors For Professionals: understanding the blade edge (convex, bevel, flat, serrated, etc.), and the materials that the scissors are made from, are important when deciding on your purchase. Higher quality steel means better blades, and it can also determine whether your blade edge will last or break easily.
  • Hair Cutting Scissors For Students and Apprentices: understanding what ergonomic handle style you need, and the size of the scissors. If you are barbering, then you may need a 7" long barber blade for over-the-comb style haircutting techniques. The most common haircutting shear size is 6" and allows you to perform most techniques.
  • Hair Cutting Scissors For Home Use: you need to look for a brand that offers a basic pair of scissors that won't disappoint. Amazon and Wish offers $5 hair cutting scissors, but these rust within a few weeks of washing. Jaguar and Mina are some of the most popular home use scissors that will last for many years.
