​The Left Handed Struggle: Where Are The Professional Hair Shears For Lefties

Posted by Brent Riggins on

Buying Lefty Hair Shears

If you use hair shears with your left hand, you already understand the challenge. In a world of right-handers, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to find high-quality, thinning shears for left-handed people.

The reason for this is that true designs for lefties are not so common ... nor easy to find. Instead, you are more likely to find right-handed models that have been dumped and packaged for left-handed people.

Why you need lefty shears

Barbers, stylists and hairdressers who use pseudo-left-handed shears often experience carpal tunnel syndrome and related orthopedic problems due to the stress these designs put on the body.

Fortunately, you do not have to suffer anymore.

Kenchii Beauty offers a variety of professional styling shears for thinning and high quality hair cutting for left-handed people.

What are the real left-handed scissors?

Let's start by looking at what they are not. Some manufacturers take a right scissors, flip it over and place the palm rest on the other side. Maybe they even reversed the tension knob. 

But this does not make a left-handed cut. Here is how to identify the true left-handed scissors. On a real left-handed shears, when you hold the scissors in front of you with the blades pointing towards you, the sharp side of the blade will be on the left side.

How will real shears or scissors help?

If you have never used a real left-hand shear, you may have a short adaptation period. Once you have discovered the secret, you will wonder why you have not discovered this wonder before.

To simplify the transition, try these two simple tips: When using a right-handed shear that has been "turned upside down", the movement made by the thumb causes the blades to come together, but in a real lefty, this movement separates the blades.

You can use ring inserts so that your thumb is just in the ring. Soon your thumb will learn to join the blades. Do not move your fingers when cutting. Isolate the fingers and open and close the scissors using only the thumb. 

You may need some practice to feel comfortable, but trust us when we tell you, and your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and neck will be happy to have done so.
