Choosing the Perfect Professional Hairdressing Scissors

hairdressing scissors

We all know that a pair of high-quality professional hairdressing scissors are a hairdresser’s best friend, and with that said many stylists have several pairs of scissors for different types of cutting. This can make the decision hard when it comes down to buying the perfect pair.

Not to fear, we have teamed up with Scissor Tech to provide you with the best of the best. Although there are many factors to consider when buying your hair tools, we’ve provided some tips for you to help make the best decision.


Comfort is one of the biggest factors that you should consider when purchasing a new pair of hair scissors. As you will know, Hairdressers spend all of their days working with them, and the constant movement of your wrist and fingers can cause aches and pains.

Our Advice;

Pick scissors that are designed with a comfortable grip so that they are not putting too much pressure on your hands. We offer professional tools from trusted brands such as Matsui, Jaguar and Yasaka that are made with ergonomic handles to reduce the tension on your wrist and fingers.


You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. We offer different types of hairdressing scissors with a comfortable grip and a variety of gorgeous finishes to complement your personality. Pick from a wide range of finishes such as classic steel, rose gold, matte black, rainbow chrome and pink!

Our personal favourite’s are the Diva Scissors.


The type of steel you choose for your hairdressing scissors can make all the difference in durability. Not to worry, we carry professional hairdressing supplies that are made with the highest quality steels in the world.  Scissor Tech are made with Japanese and German steels so that you can rest assured knowing that your investment will last you a long, long time with proper care and usage.

Left-Handed Scissors

If you’re left handed, then you’ll know that you need professional hairdressing scissors that are specially designed for you. Using a regular pair of scissors won’t give you the best control and precision you need when cutting hair. You need proper left-handed hairdressing scissors with the blades reversed so that the top blade is on the left to help you see your cutting line more clearly. Check out our range of left-handed hairdressing scissors here.

Swivel Scissors

For ultimate comfort in hairdressing scissors, swivel scissors are the best choice for you! They have a rotating thumb ring, which provides more comfort and relieves the pressure of your hands, back and shoulders. With comfortable grip handles and different types of angles available, your hands will be thanking you later for switching to swivel scissors!

Texturizing Scissors

Thinner scissors have teeth or notches on one side, while the other side is a smooth blade. They are great for texturising and adding more volume to the hair. We sell the best thinner scissors which are also available in right-handed and left-handed models to suit all needs.

The Matsui Swarovski Elegance Scissor & Thinner combo is gorgeous, not to mention amazing value for money!
