Deciding on your first pair of scissors can be extremely confusing and difficult for a beginner hairdresser. You’ll have to take into consideration numerous factors such as price, quality, comfort and style before making the purchase.
At Scissor Tech, we are focused on helping every hair stylist find their dream pair of professional hairdressing scissors. That’s why we’ve come up with three recommendations that will make the perfect first pair for an apprentice. Read on to find out our suggestions!
If you’re looking for a trusty and professional hairdressing scissor that will last you a long time, look no further than the Matsui Matte Black Aichei Mountain Offset Scissors. This beautiful cutter is extremely affordable given the high-quality materials and the smooth finish. It is made with superior Japanese Aichei steel, which is one of the best steels in the world when it comes to producing premium hairdressing tools. Choose from the two options of 5.5 or 6-inch blades, which are versatile for most haircutting techniques including point cutting, feathering and texturising.
This quality set of shears is great for beginners and apprentices due to its overall reliability. The offset handle with comfortable grips makes it easy to use, and the sleek matte black color is a definite crowd pleaser. The best part is that it comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects and a premium carry case filled with quality accessories to help you protect and maintain your new secret weapon!
Every hairdresser needs a great pair of thinner scissors to help them thin out hair and add texture. Thinning scissors are different from the traditional cutters as the blades of a thinner are made with notches of teeth that determine how much hair you cut away with every snip. As an apprentice, a thinner can be very handy as it provides you with better control when cutting hair so that you don’t end up cutting too much hair off.
We recommend the Matsui Matte Black Offset Thinner for beginner hairstylists as it is made with 27 teeth to provide precise control. These stunning texturizing scissors are made with an offset handle that provides extra comfort and a superior hollow ground design that ensures durability and longevity!
You can’t go past the Matsui Apprentice Kit when you’re looking for an affordable set that has every type of hairdressing scissors you could possibly need. This versatile set contains a 5.5-inch cutter that is made for precision cutting and styling women’s hair. You’ll also love the 6-inch cutter included in this set, which is made for barbering techniques such as scissor over comb and blunt cuts.
A pair of 6-inch thinners are also included in this classic set to help you thin out hair effortlessly and add texture. Not only is this set a steal for the price but you’ll also enjoy all the benefits that you typically get with any of Scissor Tech’s hairdressing tools.
