To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These worked for me during lockdown. I used them on my fine thin hair and my granddaughters very thick long hair. I also bought the matching razor scissors to soften the cut. I am not a professional but they seemed good to me.
I bought these scissors during lock down to cut my dads and my husbands hair. Like other girls who became barbers overnight! These are great, easy to hold and cut with, very sharp (first time using I sliced my knuckle open... so back to the u-tube video to see how to avoid injuries!) pretty well priced compared to some scissors on Amazon. Would recommend.
Be careful they really are very sharp, they are the first pair I've ever had (I usually use my nail scissors but lockdown forced my hand so to speak!), the quality and keenness of the blade is excellent and they're very comfortable to hold, if you're going to try them for the first time - approach hair with caution, make small cuts because you can always take more off but you can't put it back on if you get over enthusiastic!!!
These scissors are quite short, but at least you're told that in advance. But having owned them long enough now to give and get several haircuts, the real shock is how quickly they get dull and start to pull. I wouldn't buy them again or recommend, but maybe if you're only looking for a very short-term solution....
Well, I guess you get what you pay for. I purchased these hoping to get a reasonably serviceable pair of shears for occasional home trims without spending too much money. Though they look nice and are comfortable enough to hold, they were quite dull from the very first usage. I've only used them twice, unfortunately not in time to return them. Both times, I ended up with the ends of my hair more split and damaged after I trimmed them than before, and they were so dull it was a struggle to cut my hair. They pushed the hairs aside almost as much as they cut them.
I'm so disappointed in these scissors. After all the reviews saying it was going to super sharp - I didn't find this to be the case at all. I think I could have added another £10-£15 and got a haircut from Toni & Guy who would have done this with super sharp scissors - and their cut would've lasted for ages and ages.
During Lockdown, my wife had to learn to cut my hair and this scissors served that purpose. This scissors is sharp, sturdy, easy to handle and looks great. We have used it 5 times so far and it seems like it would stay sharp for a very long time.
