July 1, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

As a hairdresser, there are more things you’d need to worry about than you think. One of those things is your comfort as you are performing a haircut. For those who are left-handed, it may be a little difficult to perform haircuts but it is not impossible. With the special shear from Kamisori hair scissors, it isn’t hard at all to cut and be comfortable at the same time.

It’s not always fun having to do things left-handed because not all resources and tools are made for people who use their left hand. For example, bowling may be hard sometimes or baseball or even tennis. The world-famous brand of shears, Kamisori has made it that much easier, however, to perform a haircut. There are many different styles of these shears but they all perform one universal task.

One of the styles is called “Smoke” and it was designed originally for a hairdresser who is right-handed. The design on this particular shear is very narrow-nosed so that hair can be cut with a very sleek and easy cut. Most of the shears designed by this brand are similar to the narrow design of these shears but each pair have their own unique characteristics whether it be the performance or the appearance. After popular demand of this shear, Kamisori designed the “Smoke” for left-handers as well.

One of the most unique styles in left hand design is the “Cobra.” Also inspired by the right hand design, this shear is mainly for lightweight care and balance. The blades have holes cut in them to decrease the weight so hairstyles are easier to create. With these holes, balance is increased so that a more even cut is achieved for women with all hair lengths and styles.

When you think of haircutting obstacles, you may not think of being left-handed as a problem. It can be difficult to get a pair of hair scissors that will perform the same as a right-handed pair and still provide you with comfortability. All pairs of hair scissors designed by Kamisori are designed with a warranty that will ensure that you can cut every last strand of hair with comfort in mind.

Keeping Hair Fresh Makes Your Look Fresh

When I was younger, I could go two or three months between each haircut. It always seemed easier when I was a young girl because my hair hadn’t been exposed to heat or damaging chemicals yet. Getting a haircut in April meant my next appointment would be in June or July. However, as I grew up, I started getting into trends from my favorite TV shows and wanted to constantly look like my favorite celebrities. When I was little, fresh haircuts made me look older because of the styles I was admired by. Now that I’m older I realize haircuts should make me look younger. As I get older I don’t want to look older, I want to keep my youthful, fun look that keeps me in touch with my youthful personality.

Older women today sometimes have trouble with this concept of staying younger. There are a few common mistakes that they make, thinking these things will make them look older. For example, they tan their skin, grow their hair out, get their nails done and more just to make themselves look younger. Truth is, those things only make them look older. When they tan their skin becomes wrinkly and tight when what they want is to look dark and flawless. Maybe this is what they see but the rest of the world notices an orange shriveled up body. Growing hair out doesn’t look great on older women because of the texture of their hair. As we age, our hair gets drier and begins to loose its natural oils and the longer it gets, the more noticeable those dried ends become. Getting nails done aren’t that bad of an asset to the aging process. It just looks bad when you combine it with the above trends that don’t look good.

Going back to growing out hair, we want to avoid looking old with our hair especially. To do this, we should think of new ways to keep a fresh look and a perfect example would be a haircut! Getting regular haircuts is an essential if you want to look young and fresh. Doing this can also bring out highlights in your other features too. For example, when you get bring out those  hair shears and chop off all dead ends in your hair, you can add a little needed volume. Create some layers too if you want a little oomph in the top of your head. Body in the hair definitely cuts a few years off your look and when you build up the hair, you also build up your cheekbones. Shorter cuts are very appropriate for women over fifty and when you use your hair scissors for certain tasks it helps a lot. Another idea is to cut a section from your bangs to swoop to the side. This will cover some of the aging spots on the forehead but it will also draw attention to your eyes when the hair falls right next the eye.

To play up your look, think about ways to make yourself younger. Next time you want a new style, don’t think about dying your roots or going tanning to make yourself look younger. Instead try getting it all cut off and making it more of a polished look. Making yourself look younger definitely isn’t a hard thing to do when you think about it.

Why Do We Cut Our Hair?

Some say that getting haircuts makes them feel refreshed. The feeling of a new haircut can give your look a little zip and make everything seem crisp since it’s a new cut. There are also theories stating that if you trim your ends every six to eight weeks it can help your hair to grow faster. Some say this theory can’t be true, however, because it may seem hard to make hair grow if it’s always getting cut. There are many reasons why people cut their hair but there are also people out there who think haircuts are overrated. Why would you want to cut your hair when you can keep it growing to be luscious and long.

One of the reasons to cut hair regularly is because the ends get messy and tend to break easily if they aren’t treated. The suggested length to wait between cuts is six to eight weeks because the hair follicle needs a little time to grow back out before it can be reshaped. If you have extremely dry and damaged hair, you need may need to make your regular cut every four to six weeks so the hair can be repaired more often and maintain some health. As long as you bring out those hair shears more than twice a year, you can help your hair keep its body.

We, as Americans, are a much cleaner group of people than those in some foreign countries. Not to say there is anything wrong with other cultures and their traditions but in our specific society, we tend to care of our bodies more often and in heavier ways. For example, the average American will cleanse his or her hair and body once each day whereas it is more traditional in places like Rome to shower every three or four days. The fact that we are slightly higher on the hygiene scale reminds us that we tend to have cleaner cut hair too. Most Americans say that a good haircut should come every once in a while just to feel cleaner about themselves.

As odd as it may seem, some people even get a haircut just to gossip! That’s right, some ladies need a little time away from their husbands or children so they get a quick trim at the salon just to be around other women who talk about similar things! This may even be one of the more popular reasons for women to get a haircut. On the other hand, some men could care a less about their hair being cut and what type of shears are being used on them, etc. They get haircuts because their wives force them to after so long. The typical things they’ll hear from their wives include, “You look like a girl!” or “I can’t believe how long you’re letting your hair grow…I’m calling my hair lady!”

There are some reasons for getting a regular cut that make more sense than others. Who would think a place like a beauty salon would be a go-to place to get your mind off of things. For some women, it’s the perfect place. Then there are reasons like giving the hair cuticle a fresh start every once in a while. This is smart if you want to keep hair growing at its best. If you don’t get a regular trim with a quality pair of shears, the growth rate gets trapped by split ends and makes it come to an abrupt halt after so long.

Avoiding Split Ends

September 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

No matter what your hair type or even your desired style the one thing every woman has in common and dreads the same is split ends in their hair. Split ends occur when the protective cuticle around the hair ends is damaged or removed. When women have split ends in their hair it tends to look frizzy as well as unhealthy and not clean.

There is some confusion on what exactly causes split ends and by not understanding how you get them you cannot effectively avoid them in your hair. Some of the causes are prolonged heat exposure from poor quality hair irons, extreme temperatures, chemicals, and poor haircuts with dull hair cutting tools.

Of course long ago women would burn the split ends to remove them from their hair. Though this works, this is not the recommended way to get rid of split ends from your hair. There is no hair products that will magically make split ends go away so cutting them off is your best bet to get them and encourage new healthy growth in your hair. This should be done with sharp professional hair cutting scissors so that you get the smoothest cleanest cut to begin again with fresh healthy hair.
