Cutting edge Japanese scissors
Japanese scissors are highly prized in the grooming industry due to the precision of their finely engineered blades. Barber scissors have to be strong to withstand salon use, and the stainless steel versions are durable enough for regular cleaning and sterilising within a hairdressing environment.
Usually only about 6” in size, they are easy to wash and store and many come with padded handles for comfort too. A great range of Japanese scissors and Japanese shears can be found right here on eBay.Forged scissors
Forged hand scissors are another option for a barber or hairdresser looking for high-quality hair cutting scissors. Often found conveniently packed in travel hairdressing kits, forged steel Japanese scissors are perfect for mobile hairdressers whose customers expect salon style in their own home. The forging process ensures that the cutting performance of the blades will endure multiple haircuts and grooming sessions.Expert blades
As with all scissors, they are only as good as the blades are sharp and the handles are comfortable. Often small and extremely sharp, Japanese scissors are reminiscent of the famous Samurai blades. As scissors are often used daily within a busy salon, Japanese scissors have superior blades that offer a consistent cut, combined with handles that are ergonomically formed for comfort, to allow the user total control while cutting hair.Thinning scissors
Another handy tool in every hairdresser's scissor set should be a pair of thinning shears. Often made of steel or titanium, thinning scissors help to remove bulk and encourage thick hair to adapt to a style better. Thinning scissors come in different types, so a barber or hairdresser can decide which pair of scissors is best for a client's hair type: with fine hair, only the minimum amount of excess hair is cut by using thinning scissors with wide set comb blades, while for thicker hair an increased amount of hair is trimmed away due to the blades being set closer together.
