Smile Best Hair Scissors

Hi Everyone,

I don't normally trim my own ends because I used to worry about cutting too much. Now I think I'm ready to give it a try but every time I go into Sally's I'm never really sure what to get. The hair scissors all look about the same but the prices range from $10-$60. Yikes!!

Can someone tell me what I should be looking for in hair scissors and what I should stay away from?

And if this thread has been posted elsewhere please let me know where to find it.

Thanks!!

I would like to know as well. I need a pair of good scissors for my June 2009 BC day. I see that Target sells a few types of hair scissors, too. Does anyone have experience with hair scissors purchased from Target?

Quite honestly I don't even know but I've been wondering the same thing for a while now. When I clip my straggly ends I just use the Goody Clippers I find at Sallys Beauty Supply. Its on $6.99 and it gets the job done. I'm not a proffessional and I'm not doing a real cut so I figure as long as the scissors are sharp and are meant for barbering it'll be alright.

If you're not a professional you don't need $60 scissors! I've been using general hair scissors (nothing fancy) that my friend got for around $10.

Not that I've been stealing her scissors.

Okay so I guess I will be buying $10-$12 scissors. Do hair scissors need to be changed often? And is there anything I should watch out for?

The might need to be sharpened from time to time. Any place you can get knives sharpened can do it for you. Or you can do it yourself. Do your research on materials as well, stainless steel might be your best best.

Look for things labeled "shears" or "barber scissors" instead of "scissors." Regular scissors aren't sharp enough to get clean lines. I had tons of split ends because I used regular scissors for half of my bc and shears for the other.
