Our Staff's Top 5 Cheap Hairdressing Scissors

The most common question we receive every week is "can cheap hairdressing scissors be used by professionals?". 

What is the real difference between the cheap hairdressing scissors and those premium expensive ones? Will the cutting experience be completely different?

Hairdressing scissors are cheaper due to the ingredients and the country it was made in. Cheap steel makes the hair scissors blunt faster and at risk of corrosion and simple wear and tear. Cheap shears can definitely be used by professionals, but it all depends on 'how cheap'.

Rather than breaking down why and how hairdressing scissors became so cheap, we asked our staff and some of our experienced customers what their "go-to" cheap hairdressing scissors were.
