More about this product
Whether you are a stylist looking for an inexpensive pair of back up shears or a home hair cutting enthusiast, these versatile 5.5" shears provide professional features at a budget price. With adjustable blade tension, an ergonomic offset handle design and removable, cushioned ring inserts, they are ideal for for basic trims and for more complicated, layered styles.
Comb hair to remove any snarls and, holding the shears horizontally, trim to the desired length. To add some movement and avoid a blunt-looking cut, you can hold the shears vertically and use the point to make very short snips. NOTE: Always leave your hair a bit longer than you'd like so you have some room to even it out if it looks unbalanced. It's also best to trim your bangs when they're dry so you will have an accurate view of the length.
If the blades of the scissors are difficult to close, loosen the tension by turning the adjustment screw counter clockwise. If the blades are too loose and are bending the hair instead of making crisp cuts, increase the tension by turning the adjustment screw clockwise.
These shears are made of stainless steel and can be used on wet hair. After each trim, wipe the blades with a dry cloth to remove any hair clippings. Leave your shears in an open position to air dry before storing them.
