Tell the difference between these scissor types with our helpful hints:
Thinners, or Double Thinning Scissors:
- Have teeth on both edges
- Used to remove bulk from coats, this includes very fluffy ears.
- Expect to pay from £40 to £100 on a good quality scissor, and up to £150 for special features.
Blenders, or Single Thinning Scissors:
- Have teeth along one edge only.
- Used for blending coats from long to short and for softening around the face.
- Used for smooth clipper and scissor lines, also to give natural texture.
- The more teeth, the more hair the blending scissors take off.
- Expect to pay for £50 to £100 on a good quality pair, and more for excellent quality.
- Have large teeth along one edge that leave small gaps for hair to slip into larger spaces in the scissor blade.
- Used for texturising and giving a soft and natural finish.
- Removes lines left by scissoring with full-bladed shears.
- Expect to pay £150 – £250 for a very high quality chunker scissor.
