When looking hairdressing or barber shears, Titanium scissors are really common, but are they better at cutting?
The truth is, no scissors are pure titanium. Most of the cheaper titanium scissors just use a colour coating and no titanium addition. Only the highest end premium scissors may have a light titanium coating in its blade that keeps the cutting edge sharper for longer.
We see new brands, models and hairdressing scissors appear everyday, and unfortunately this isn't always a good thing.
New models coming from China, India and Pakistan feature a "titanium" design, but this is just a colour coating and doesn't improve on the cutting performance.
Titanium is incredibly rare and expensive, so only the premium scissors valued over $1,000 include this feature.
Titanium coated scissors is better for cutting, staying sharper for longer. The quality is unparalleled as the blade has incredible hardness and durability.
Titanium scissors are both lightweight and hard enough to cut through hair without wearing down the blade.
Overall, titanium shears are the highest in quality, cutting performance and sharpness.
