If you have a few kids at home, then you are probably all too familiar with the pricey trip to salon. Just a couple of kids’ haircuts can set you back big time. If you arm yourself with the know-how and the right equipment, you will be set to save time and money. Of course, you will need to first invest in a high quality hair scissors and if you have boys, an electric razor or hair cutting kit. Don’t try this without the right tools. A dull kitchen knife will leave you hating yourself and your kids will never let you touch their hair again.
It’s best to start this process when your kids are still young. This is not only because it’s an acceptable age for them to have a less than perfect cut, but it gives you a chance to hone your skills before they face a class full of critics. You will not only have to get the hang of it, but slowly teach your child the importance of holding still. With a little practice, you both can work together and achieve great styles at home at a fraction of the cost.
There are a variety of hair scissors available and they will vary based on your needs. The major types are thinning shears, styling shears, tempered shears and left-handed shears. They are designed to perform different tasks and be held in different ways. Short blades are designed for close touchups around the ear. Long blades are ideal for cutting thick hair.
