One of the most commonly asked questions we receive from our customers is “which way up should I use my hair thinning scissors” so we have decided to make a short article about this.
Hair thinning scissors have two blades, one with teeth and the other without.
When holding your pair of hair thinning shears or texturizing scissors, you should have the teeth facing upwards towards the ceiling and the cutting blade facing downwards to the floor.
When holding these on the side, whether you are right-handed or left-handed, the thinning scissor teeth should be facing outwards. The cutting blade should face inwards.
Here is a picture that shows you how you should how thinning scissors when cutting, blending or texturizing hair.
Each pair of thinning scissors is designed to thin out hair, and if you face them in the wrong direction, you can cause damage to the hair, including tugging, pulling breakage, and split-ends.
