Professional Thinning Scissors allow you to be able to add texture and thin out thick hair which is one of the most essential abilities for a hairdresser looking to achieve a well balanced look for their clients.
Thinning scissors usually involve one sharp blade and one blade with "teeth" which means the barber can cut less hair with each chop than usual. The amount of teeth determines how the scissors perform. Scissors with higher amounts of teeth are best used to soften blunt lines and blend. These are your best option for finishing and texturizing. A good rule of thumb is that finishing shears are set at around 15-22 teeth whilst texturising shears are set at around 25 teeth or more.
Shears with a wider teeth setting, such as shears with less than 15 teeth, are best suited to taking out unwanted weight in hair. Ideal for clients who have naturally thick and dense hair and want to reduce some of the volume.
