Let's be honest - every professional hairdresser needs to have tools that they know they can rely on to make the cleanest cuts and make sure that their clients always exit their salon satisfied with the work done. However, only having them is not enough - if you want your reliable pair of hair cutting shears to last you a lifetime and perform work of the same quality every time, then you need to take proper care of it. There's no way around it.
One way you can do it is by always keeping them in a case or a pouch when they aren't in use. It will protect them from dust and keep the blades clean. Here at Scissor Tech, we understand the importance of scissor pouches and cases, which is why we offer a great variety of both.
And if you thought that the only choice you'll have to make is whether you want a case or a pouch, then we're sorry to say that that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some other things that you'd need to make up your mind about:
No matter if you're just starting your career in hairdressing
or if you already have years of experience, some tools are just a must-have for a professional, such as:
Putting your hair cutting tools in their designed case or pouch at the end of the day is just one position on the proper maintenance checklist. Unfortunately, although very important, it is not enough to keep your hair cutting shears as sharp as possible for years. However, fear not, as we are here to tell you exactly how you can take care of your hair cutting tools.
Clean your scissors, trimmer or other hair cutting tools with a soft cloth - do it after every cut. It helps get rid of chemicals or hair that might be left on your shears, and that can affect their performance as the day goes on.
There's a reason why we include scissor oil in most of our packages - that's because oiling is crucial for proper maintenance. To oil your scissors, open them to a 90° angle, and apply a little bit of the oil on the scissor's pivot - it will leave a protective layer. Remember that you should repeat this process daily if you want your scissors to serve you for years while remaining with a smooth feeling cut after cut.
In order for your scissors to work properly, they need to have the correct tension. If they are too loose, the chances are that they will bend and damage your client's hair and worse your scissors. On the other hand, if they are too tight, they will most likely wear out faster than scissors with the correct tension.
To test if your hair cutting shears have the right tension, hold them with both hands with the tips upwards, and lift one handle to a 90° angle and let go of it. If the scissors close completely very quickly, they are too loose. In this case, you have to adjust the tension and repeat the test. The scissors should close about two-thirds of the way.
If you use your hair-cutting shears of hair thinning scissors regularly, then you should have them serviced at least the very minimum, pending how often you use your scissors, once a year, if not more often. Since scissors are your tools of the trade and rather expensive ones, you need to be careful when choosing a service center. After all, you probably don't want to spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on hair cutting tools, only for them to be ruined by someone who has no idea how to service them properly.
When we say that taking care of your tools properly is not an easy job, we mean it. There are many things that might seem innocent and not a big deal but are actually very harmful to your prized possessions, aka your hair cutting tools. To save you (and your wallet) from a tragedy, here is a short overview of what we consider to be the dos and the don'ts of hair cutting tools maintenance.
Here at Scissor Tech, we understand that if you want the hairdressing tools you purchased to last you for a very long time, you need to take care of them properly - this includes keeping them in a case or a pouch where they can safely await their next calling.
