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.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
As a stylist at Karma Salon, with 10 years of experience, I offer a wide range of services such as color, highlights and lowlights, haircut and style services. As well as being master certified in 7 different hair extension techniques.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration to become a stylist began as a young teen. Beauty and fashion has always been a passion of mine and being blessed with the talent to create and express my creativity has driven me to be the artist I am today, and even better than I was yesterday. I love making my clients feel beautiful!
What do you love most about your job?
I love developing relationships with my clients. Being able to take a desired look and put it into action. Creating an art that leaves my clients feeling beautiful when they leave my chair is what drives me. Being able to express myself through my artistry and a happy client is what makes me love being a hairstylist in this industry.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction I've ever received from a client is a text after leaving their appointment telling me how great of a job I did on their hair and are already receiving several compliments just hours after their service. Knowing they are extremely happy and are recommending you to others, is the greatest compliment a stylist can receive.
