The coupe scissors are scissors with a sharp (normal cutting blade) and a serrated blade. There are a number of different types of teeth, the distance of the teeth differs per type of scissors and determine the effect that occurs during cutting.
The thinning scissors have a serrated blade on both sides, in contrast to the thinning scissors where this is only the case on one side. The scissors are often used for thinning and thinning hair. What is thinning? Effilating the hair is a special cutting technique. The hair is thinned out by applying this technique. Usually this is used to finish a haircut or haircut. There are several thinning techniques to use. We know three techniques, namely; point effilation, length effilation and depth effilation. Depending on the technique, this can provide more volume or beautiful, supple hair. You can also use thinning scissors, but the thinning effect is much greater.

I. What are convex cut hairdressing scissors?
Convex cut hairdressing scissors are hairdressing scissors that have been sharpened in a special way. The angle of the cutting blade is more inclined than with a flat cutting blade. With convex cut hairdressing scissors, the hair is cut diagonally. This ensures that the hair dries out less quickly and reduces split ends. With a flat cutting blade, the hair is cut flat. This creates split ends faster. Convex and honed cut blades are the same!
II. What is the difference between ergonomic and classic design?
An ergonomic design with hairdressing scissors means that the hairdressing scissors are positioned so that the hairdressing scissors are adjusted to the hand. This ensures a fine grip, a comfortable and relaxed working method. In addition, bruises and friction are reduced. In a classic design, the finger eyes are perfectly opposite each other, this provides an authentic feeling but no ergonomic grip.
III. What is the difference between thinning scissors and thinning scissors?
Thinning scissors have double-toothed cutting blades. With a coupe scissors, this is only one cutting blade with thinning teeth. With thinning scissors, the thinning is considerably greater than with thinning scissors because of the double toothing. With the coupe scissors, it depends on how many teeth the scissors have. If the scissors have 5 teeth, a coarse thinning takes place, if the scissors have 34 teeth, the thinning is a lot finer.
IV. What is the difference between the number of effiler teeth?
Thinning scissors or thinning scissors are available in different numbers of thinning teeth. The more thinning teeth, the less the hair is thinned. This of course means that with fewer teeth a greater thinning takes place.
Q. What is a swivel?
A swivel is a rotating thumb eye for a super ergonomic grip. This rotates with your thumb to relieve pressure and prevent friction. Some hairdressing scissors even have a 360 ° rotating thumb eye to allow for any position.
VI. How do I adjust my hairdressing scissors?
Most hairdressing scissors have a turning screw to adjust the flexibility. With this rotary screw you can set the hairdressing scissors looser or tighter. The perfect setting can be achieved in a very simple way.
Grab the hairdressing scissors and make sure the blades are at a 90 ° angle.
Let go of the horizontal blade.
The space between the blades after release should be between 1.5-2cm for perfect smoothness.
VII. What is slicing?
Slicing is a special cutting technique to create smooth hairstyles. This technique does require some skill and insight. If you want to start slicing, you need hairdressing scissors without micro-toothing. The micro-toothing is not visible on the hairdressing scissors but it has an enormous influence on slicing. The hairdressing scissors will stiffly go there the hair, with convex cut hairdressing scissors this is not the case.
Do you want to slice? Then go for hairdressing scissors with convex blades!
VIII. How do I maintain my hairdressing scissors?
The maintenance of hairdressing scissors is very important, if you omit this, the hairdressing scissors will no longer work as well. Hairdressing scissors can be maintained in different ways. One way is to wash the client's hair before cutting. This ensures that it is easy to cut and that is better for your hairdressing scissors! The flexibility of the hairdressing scissors is also important. You can see how you can set this under heading VI.
Also clean the hairdressing scissors after every haircut, often there are still some small hairs left in the hairdressing scissors after a haircut. A simple blow or wipe with a cloth is sufficient.
There is also special scissors oil. This ensures that the blades and hinges remain flexible for a nice cutting feeling.
IX. What are hairdressing scissors with a “coating”?
Hairdressing scissors that have a coating are automatically 100% nickel-free. Because some hairdressers have a nickel allergy, coated hairdressing scissors are very useful. There are also hairdressing scissors without coating that are also 100% nickel free.
Nickel allergy often occurs with frequent use of hairdressing scissors that contain nickel, this is not a direct cause for hairdressing eczema.
X. What is the difference between hairdressing scissors sizes (-> “inches)
Many hairdressers use hairdressing scissors between 5 ”and 6”. These are the most common sizes because they are not that heavy. Scissors between 5 "and 6" are often referred to as "all-round scissors", which is not entirely correct. Those scissors are most commonly used for fine cutting. Larger hairdressing scissors are often used for the coarser cutting work. The 7 ”and 8” hairdressing scissors are usually for “show hairdressers”. These hairdressing scissors look spectacular on stage and attract a lot of attention. In practice, larger hairdressing scissors are less useful, especially in the hairdressing salon where the hairdresser can easily make 20,000 cutting movements per day. You will suffer from friction more quickly because of the weight of the scissors.
