Everyone has a fear of the texturizing shear. We all feel a knot in our stomachs the moment the stylist pulls out the feared shear with teeth! Before you can say “stop!” your stylist has already started cutting, but don’t panic!
The texturizing shear is used for a number of things: softening the ends of hair, removing bulk, cutting a blunt line and adding texture. It’s true: hair will fall, but not at the lengths that one might imagine. We’ve laid out some of the benefits that come with using a texturizing shear. Read this over before your next appointment to cut out the fear of the shear. Just like anything else in life it isn’t the machine it’s the operator!
- Soften the ends. An abrupt ending to a cut is never a desirable outcome. That is why your stylist will use shears around your ends to give your style a soft, clean and wispy look and feel.
- Remove bulk. Bobs are a great example of a potentially bulky hair style. No one wants the triangle or “bell” shaped coif. With shears, your stylist can easily and safely remove the access weight of your cut and give you a lighter lift of a style.
- Adding texture. Texturizing your hairstyle will give your cut dimension. With texture, you have the freedom to make your style look edgy and fun.
