    Professional Hairdressing Scissors

    Texturising scissors are a must-have tool for all hairstylists. Not only do they add volume and texture to your haircuts, but they can also work in the same way as thinning scissors. Hereís everything you need to know about texturising shears. How are texturising scissors different from thinning shears? In most cases they are the same but some hairdressers might argue that texturising scissors have fewer teeth with wider gaps to create texture, whereas thinning scissors have more teeth with less space between them to remove weight from the hair.




    However, both types of scissor can achieve similar results. Texturising scissors can also reduce thickness, and both scissors can be used to soften the edges of a haircut for a more seamless finish.

    Texturising scissors, as mentioned, have fewer teeth with wider gaps between them. This design ensures that they can remove more hair than thinning shears. However, the end result of the haircut has more volume, and the shape of the cut is enhanced with added texture.

    Re: Professional Hairdressing Scissors

    As with most hairdressing tools, texturising scissors can be used in different ways to achieve different results. If you use them in a similar way to thinning scissors, they can be a useful way to work on really thick hair. You can learn how to thin hair on our previous blog post, which you can find here.

    Re: Professional Hairdressing Scissors

    Texturising scissors are ideal for thick hair. If used correctly, texturising scissors can also be used on fine hair without removing unwanted amounts of hair. Take your scissors and cut very close to the ends of the hair. This will add texture without removing too much weight.


    Be mindful when working on curly hair with texturising scissors. Removing too much hair on a curly head can damage the natural curl pattern and cause frizz. Generally, curly hair - especially coils - already have a lot of texture and volume. But if you decide to use texturising scissors on curly hair, keep them close to the ends, and donít over-do it!

    Not all hair thinning scissors are equal. While all scissors are made from steel, the quality of the steel differs. The steel made in Japan is considered the best quality because it’s harder and holds its edge better than the steel from Korea, Taiwan, China, Pakistan, and India. German steel is also very high quality.

    If you're looking to blend a cropped cut or men's cut, these shears are a great option for beginners. With 30 teeth on this shear adding natural, soft texture to your hair will feel effortless when used correctly.

    Once you get the hang of using a thinning shear, find the one that suits your needs best and invest in something a little more upscale, like these blending shears from Sam Villa. These also have 30 teeth so your hair will have a very delicate finish on the ends. They're also great for blending fine hair and blunt lines and can soften your fringe if needed. When investing a little more money, be sure and check that a warranty is included to get added protection for your tools.

    Getting a good haircut is about more than just length and shape. It's about making the hair feel good, highlighting your features, making strands easier to manage and catering to your lifestyle. Hairstylists have a lot of factors to take into account when approaching the full-picture of your strands and how to best help them help you. Thankfully, we have an array of tools to choose from to help us achieve the results requested. Today we'll be talking about one of my personal favorites, the thinning shear.
