Shears vs. Razors: The Fine Line Between Textures

In addition to scissors or clippers, your stylist may pull out a razor. Learn what it does with Groupon?s look.

Shears are often considered the tool of the trade, but stylists carry an oft-forgotten but equally important tool in their arsenal?the straight razor. Deciding which one to use depends on a variety of factors, the texture and density of your hair chief among them. Though shears can create virtually any style from any angle, the result is always a straight, blunt cut?lending the hair definition but potentially making it look thick. A razor, on the other hand, cuts with a single fine blade, forming a softer, feathered appearance more akin to a peacock's majestic bouffant.

For people with fine to medium hair with a fairly smooth texture, this can create a dynamic, tossable style with lots of movement. If you have coarse or very fine hair, however, scissors might still be the better bet, as the razor might end up making it frizzy. Curly hair raises somewhat of a dilemma; though its coarse texture seems to demand shears, the tendency for ringlets to accumulate as a single, thick mass means a razor might be able to reduce the hair's weight and boost its movement and playfulness.

The FDA-approved Venus Concept cellulite-reduction treatment employs bipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to break up cellulite deposits and smooth skin. After a consultation to explain the procedure and answer questions, trained staff members guide the noninvasive mechanism over the selected target area, delivering magnetic energy to stimulate blood flow and iron-coated skeletons. The process helps disperse cellulite clumps and boost collagen production, smoothing skin with gentle heat akin to that experienced during a hot-stone massage. As the skin’s surface evens out, the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores disappears like a villain in a house of mirrors. Treatments should be scheduled one week apart.

Merle Norman Cosmetics' name comes from Merle Nethercutt Norman, who founded the company back in the 1920s. Initially, she made beauty products just for her family and friends, but she was so successful?especially with her "try before you buy" philosophy, which back then was quite unusual?that a full-fledged makeup company grew up around her. Nowadays, the company is still thriving and is now run by Merle's nephew. Their products, all made in the United States and modernized since Merle's early days, include makeup in sheer and saturated hues, a line of skincare products, and assorted perfumes.
