If you have some skill with scissors and want to cut back on the time you spend at the salon, these shears are a great option. Their size makes them easy to handle and ideal for trimming bangs and kids' hair.
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.
It's best to keep your shears in a dry environment. If they get wet, dry them with a clean towel. Wipe the blades after use with a dry cloth. If your blades seem to catch when you close them, or if the action is not smooth, turn the screw slightly counter-clockwise to loosen. If the shears are too lose and are bending the hair instead of cutting it, turn the screw slightly clockwise to tighten.
