First Time Scissor Shopping

February 12, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Hair scissors aren’t the easiest things to know how to shop for. It takes a lot of time and effort to pick out the right pair for you and to know that you will love them. The process of shopping for hair scissors isn’t like a wedding dress in that you can’t just put something on and fall in love. With shears you have to test them for a minute and make sure they’re comfortably usable. The drama that comes with scissors shopping doesn’t always have to be difficult, though.

Starting out as a new stylist is when this process is the hardest. This is because without many years of experience, you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. When you are a beginner, the process is about five times harder and takes about five times longer. It does get easier though so take a breath!

The first thing to remember is to never shop alone; especially with something so expensive like hair scissors. Salesmen and women have a tendency to sell you shears because of their price, not their quality. If you hear so many good things about a pair of shears that are over 1000 dollars but you hear nothing about a cheaper pair that seems to have half-way decent quality to them, there may be a problem. The salesman knows he is getting your attention focused on the expensive shears and he is going to go on about them until you give in. This is why you should always bring a friend; preferably a friend that knows a thing or two about styling. She could help you discover some ways to choose the best shears. And hey, it never hurt to have someone there to help you say no to a salesperson!

Things never seem to go fast when shopping for shears but to speed up the process, think about the things you are looking for when you cut hair. And not just things like the color of the shears or a price range; consider things like the sharpness of the blades and the performance that a specific pair are known to give. It may even help to think about it as finding all of the positive things about a certain pair you may find and then after finding that pair, ask about the price. It’s not always a great idea to judge a pair by its price.

Shopping never seems to be hard for women because it’s more of a hobby than a chore. Face it, we’ll use any excuse to be able to go out and shop for an afternoon! However, when it comes to shopping for useful tools like hair scissors, the process of shopping actually does become difficult and takes some time and consideration. Always remember the two main things about being a first time shear buyer: never shop alone and always get well-familiarized with each pair you may like.

 

Hair Straightener Reviews

December 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When it comes to shopping for a hair straightener there is a lot to consider. So many different types of straighteners, plate types, brand names, and different features that it can be confusing to try and figure out which one is right for you. And when you read the product websites, of course they are always going to tell you excellent things about their own products. How can you find an impartial opinion about hair irons? That’s easy, in order to get an impartial opinion about hair irons, you should read different hair straightener reviews.

You will find hair straightener reviews on a variety of web sites that specialize in hair products and hair styles. You can also do a search on the internet for hair iron reviews and see what turns up. When you are reading reviews however, be sure to keep in mind that not all reviews will be useful. You should look for hair straightener reviews that have been written by actual consumers, instead of product representatives in order to get a more impartial opinion about the iron.

Another thing to keep in mind about hair iron reviews is to try and find reviews that offer pictures of the person reviewing or a description of what their hair is like. This is important because if the reviewer has a hair type that is close to yours, the review will apply to you a bit more. Its one thing for someone with fine, thin hair to be reviewing an iron, but it may not relate to you if you have thick, coarse African American hair. It’s an added bonus if the reviewer has a hair type that is similar to yours.

Another thing to remember is that there are usually a few drawbacks to a product. Be wary of hair straightener reviews that are over the top positive. While it is absolutely possible for someone to be so pleased with a product that they have nothing negative to say, it might be an indication that a company representative has written the review.

Another very important thing to keep in mind is that just like anything else, hair straightener reviews are subjective. So it is usually a good idea to read a few different reviews in order to get a fair view of a product. Do not be put off if you read one negative review, the reviewer may be biased or had a uniquely bad experience. Try and read as many reviews as you can and then make your decision based on the majority.

Hair straightener reviews are an excellent way to get a feel for a product from the viewpoint of an actual user. Someone who can try out all of the features and apply it to their own hair, instead of just reading about it on a box. So when you are trying to decide which hair iron to buy, try to seek out a variety of hair straightener reviews before making a decision.

The bigger decision for many women will be the size of the barrel they want to purchase. Smaller barrels make smaller tighter curls while larger barrels make more wavy hair with big loose curls. For many a barrel size in the middle of the road will work out great while others want a couple of barrel sizes to get different looks and have some fun with their hairstyle.
