Choosing your Shear Size:

One size does not fit all. Shears come in a variety of sizes from 5 to 7 inches to fit different needs of the clients. It is common to see stylists working with multiple sizes of shears for different cutting techniques. The shorter length is ideal for precision cutting techniques and longer length is best for layer cutting techniques.

Know you Hands:

Buying a pair of shears is like buying a pair of shoes. First you need to know your size. In general, the size of your hand is the size of the shears. To ensure optimal cutting experience, most shears should not extend over your palm.
