Add a Pair of Professional Shears to Your Bag of Beauty Supplies

Sep 13, 2008
Along with maintaining a blemish and pimple free complexion, it is also a must that we take good care of our 'crowning glory'. Having a full head of shiny, bouncy, and manageable locks is great but keeping hair in show off condition naturally needs effort. Aside from conditioners, treatments and other shampoo beauty supplies having the basic knowledge of trimming one's hair to eliminate split ends could really help a lot. So when you stock up on beauty products for your hygiene arsenal, include a sturdy and trusty pair of professional shears.

Aside from shears, hair clippers are also essential for hygienic purposes; this can be easily purchased at your favourite salon spa supplies store. Here are more clipper tips from Ilse Hagen.

Types

The manual hair clipper was invented in the 19th century, relying on a person's hand power to trim and cut hair. It is made up of just two rows of sharp blades along with teeth that are used to cut through hair. The manual hair clipper is still pretty much used in traditional barber shops these days. On the other hand, the electric hair clipper is made with rust-resistant, titanium blades that never dull. Sometimes also called the corded hair clipper, it runs on a magnetic motor that cuts and trims hair at high speeds. In the same way that manual hair clippers are staples at traditional barber shops, electric hair clippers are key tools in modern-style professional salons and barber shops.

Buying tips

Here are a few things for you to keep in mind when buying hair clippers:

Comb Attachments: Look for hair clippers that allow you to use a number of comb attachments (up to 10 in some), differing in type and length, which then allows you to come up with a wider range of styles.

Blade Guards: To keep the blades of a hair clipper sharp as well as rust-free, look for one that comes with blade guards. Take note as well that blade guards always have to be replaced after each use.

Accessories: If you're looking for a professional hair cutting kit for starters, choose hair clippers that come with styling combs, barber capes, cleaning brushes, shears, and oil. This covers everything you need to start.

Remember

When looking for hair clippers, be sure to go for one that has at least 10 comb attachments with different lengths so it can be used for different hair types. Also, try to look for one that has blade guards to keep the blades rust free. Be sure to keep the blades new and clean at all times by regularly changing them.

You can also purchase a hair cutting starter kit if you are totally unfamiliar with how to do this thing on your own. A starter kit usually comes with barber capes, styling combs, shears, cleaning brushes, and oil.

Be sure to keep the clippers safe from children to avoid any accidents or injuries.

It is wise to note that these suggestions don't exclusively apply to hair clippers but in your professional shear selection as well.
