Scissors knowledge

What are modeling scissors?

Modeling scissors are hair cutting scissors with teeth on one side. These hairdressing scissors have teeth on one blade and a smooth blade on the other. These teeth ensure that only part of the hair is cut, creating a smoother transition and more volume or texture in the hair.
Modeling scissors can be used to thin out hair, create smooth transitions and achieve a natural texture.
Using sculpting shears requires skill and experience as they can significantly affect the texture and volume of the hair. They are an indispensable tool for hairdressers to create varied and individual haircuts and are available in different sizes and with different numbers of teeth.

How to use modeling scissors?

  • Thinning: The modeling scissors only cut part of the hair, which helps to reduce hair volume and thin out thick hair
  • Texturizing: Selectively cutting the hair creates a natural texture for softer and more flowing styles
  • Smooth transitions: Ideal for creating smooth transitions between different hair lengths, avoiding hard edges
  • Detail work: Suitable for working on bangs, contours and fine details where precision is required

What are effiliating scissors?

What is the difference between a modeling scissors and an effiliator scissors?

A thinning scissor is toothed on both sides and cuts out about a third of the hair. Modeling scissors, of course, are only toothed on one side and straight on the other. They therefore cut out around half of the hair.
