III. Scissors & Hair Cutting Shears


Your scissors are arguably the hairdresser’s most important tools and a central item in this hair salon equipment list. Professional hair scissors cost around $100 but can range all the way from $20 up to $600.


1. All-purpose shears


The standard size most hairdressers use is between 5.5 inches and 6.5 inches depending on the results they want. A 5.5 inch shear is ideal for precision cutting, while a longer shear, say, between 6 and 7 inches, works well for bigger jobs like large sections, compressed cutting, and deep texturizing.

Dd4878 13f50546ccf44e1aa90d0c872dae985f Mv2

2. Blending Scissors


Look for a professional blending shear (also called a professional thinning shear or professional texturizing shear) with a moderate removal of weight so that it can be used for softly removing lines, texturizing, and adjusting weight balance within a shape. For best performance, the blending shear should have convex blades and opposing grip handles so that it is reversible.

3. Straight scissors


The straight shear is what you’ll use most of the time when cutting hair. You should ideally have two different sizes of a straight shear. A longer one (above 6 inches) are good for the basic trims and for achieving a clean cut. When cutting a bob, for example, you’ll want to have a longer scissor. A good reference when buying a long scissor is that it should be about the same length as your hand.

After blow dryer, the hair straightener is probably what you’ll use the most. With the right product, you can do a lot more than just straightening hair but you can also use it to shape great curls.
