Scary, Sketchy Scissors

April 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Have you ever heard of someone trying to give themselves a haircut or a friend of theirs doing it out of their own home for them? Although this is typical and has become more popular as things have gotten more expensive, it is a bit dangerous. Truly, the only person who should be allowed to cut your hair is your personal hairstylist. You know, the one who actually went to school and studied to how to do this for a living? She’s the one person you should be able to trust that will always do the right job with your hair.

When you put the trust of your hair in someone’s hands that has not had proper training, you could be making a big mistake that will take a while to fix. This is because the tools they use are not always top of the line like hairdressers’ tools. The scissors that a hairdresser uses are specifically manufactured and sometimes only available to those who have a license to cut hair. If your friend is wanting to cut your hair and she doesn’t have a license, it will be very hard for her to find a good quality pair of scissors.

If she can’t find a good pair, she isn’t going to be able to perform well on hair.Also, hair scissors are extremely expensive and someone who doesn’t make enough money may not be able to afford one of the best kinds of shears . Unlike a hairdresser, your friend might not have any experience either. This is never good because you’ll want the best results on your hair and if it gets cut with the wrong kind of hair scissors, you may have damage to your hair.

Keeping a good cut can be difficult since hair grows over time and needs a regular trim. When you go for a new haircut, be sure you go to someone you trust whom you know will have quality shears, not scary ones. Also, keep your hairdressers consistent. Don’t go to a professional one day and then have a friend do it six weeks later. Always make them explain what they will be doing with your hair so that you can tell if they know what they’re doing.

Have you ever decided to give yourself a little trim in between salon visits? Perhaps you thought you could trim your daughter’s bangs for her so you could avoid a visit to the hair stylist? If you have ever thought that you could cut your own hair, or anyone else’s hair, you are probably guilty of scissor misuse. Come on. Admit it – you’ve done it.

 

If you’re like most people who think that they can trim their own hair, you’ve probably grabbed any old pair of scissors that you have lying around to do the task. Oh sure, you may have grabbed a “good” pair of scissors, maybe a brand new pair, or a pair that you only use for cutting fabric. Using the logic that these scissors are sharper than any other ones. After all, you wouldn’t cut your hair with the same scissors that your kids use for craft projects right?

 

Stop! If you feel the need to cut or trim your own hair for any reason, you must have the right tools for the job. Just like any other job, you must prepare yourself with the right tools. After all, you wouldn’t use a screwdriver to hammer in a nail would you? Just like you shouldn’t use your kitchen scissors to cut your hair. Instead, invest in a quality pair of hair cutting scissors or shears.

 

So what’s the big deal? Why do you need special scissors? Well for starters, a proper pair of hair shears will cut your hair cleanly and smoothly. Ordinary scissors will tear, or pull your hair. They won’t result in a clean, smooth cut. You’ll end up with damaged and jagged ends. And even worse, your hair will be uneven. Have you ever seen someone who has really short bangs, and they’re still uneven? Sure you have. That girl didn’t use the proper scissors and kept trying to correct her mistake until she ended up with awful bangs. Don’t be that girl.

 

A proper pair of hair shears will make your simple trimming jobs easy and smooth. You will be able to comfortably and easily make slight adjustments to your hair, take care of any split ends or trim your daughter’s bangs. Of course you should still visit the hair salon for major cuts and styles, but little jobs can be done very well with the proper pair of shears.

 

Look for a student set of basic shears. You don’t need anything fancy, or any special scissors for thinning your hair, or texturing your hair. Keep it simple for your first set of shears. Look for the right set for your hand. If you are left handed there are scissors that have been designed with you in mind. Try them out if you can. Hold them and get a feel for them before you buy.

 

Once you have the right tool for the job, the easy trims will be simple and enjoyable and you won’t ever have to worry about being the girl with the uneven super short bangs.
