    A Guide to the 11 Best At-Home Hair Cutting Scissors

    While we recommend you see a professional for the best hair styling results, sometimes a quick touch-up is all you need. So for those who dare, this is where a pair of affordable, at-home shears comes to play.

    When you’re picking out a pair of shears, remember: Size does matter. New York-based hairstylist and co-founder of the salon Arisa, Sarah Leah Rona tells us, “I normally look for a certain length when looking for new pair of shears. The length of your shears should start at the corner of your wrist and end at the tip of your pointer finger, diagonally placed. Shorter shears are good for fine-tuning, like perfecting a straight line around the perimeter. Or the bangs. Longer shears can cover more ground when cutting texture into the hair. I look for a hybrid pair of shears, good for both dry cutting and wet cutting. This way, there is no need to switch between shears while going from creating shape and then dry texturizing when styled to take out weight.”

    Ahead, the best 11 hair shears on the market for every skill level and budget.

    Best Investment

    Hitachi Professional Hair Cutting Scissors

    For an investment worth every penny, these scissors are as sharp as a razor (we aren’t exaggerating), giving you complete, precise control of your cuts. They come in two different lengths and offer designs for right-hand dominant users and lefties. One reviewer shares, “I’m a ‘recently turned barber’ apprentice so I’ve been cutting hair for a just a little bit over a year. The shears are nothing short of phenomenal. The quality is fantastic, the cutting precision is like nothing I’ve used before, and it’s difficult enough for me to purchase scissors that are truly left handed.”

    Best Budget

    Hair Cutting Shears Professional 6.5″

    Don’t let the low price tag on these “Amazon’s Choice” hair scissors fool you, the blades are sharp, so definitely proceed with a hefty dose of caution. They also feature rubber finger grips to steady and cushion your hold and an ergonomic handle which reduces overextension in your thumb and wrist. 

    Highly-Reviewed

    Equinox Professional Hair Cutting Scissors 6.5″

    With nearly 34 thousand reviews, these shears are perfect for beginners. One reviewer confirms, “The shears surpassed all my expectations. They have very comfortable grip, they are convenient to work with and extraordinary sharp! With these shears, I can cut hair ends half an inch from my fingers without the hairs slipping along the edges.” Oh, and don’t be concerned that they might arrive appearing wet—these scissors are treated with refined oil to prevent rusting.

    Beginner and Budget Friendly

    These shears are perfect for beginners—just sharp enough to get the job done, yet not razor sharp to where you could easily injure yourself. Not to mention, the price is really unbeatable. 

    Cult-Favorite Brand

    Tweezerman Stainless 2000 5.5″ Styling Shears

    This pair of hair scissors by beloved brand Tweezerman is a jack of all trades. One reviewer shares, “These are great budget shears for people who like to trim their own bangs or freshen up layers. They’re very sharp, glide along the hair well for edged layers, and don’t catch on thicker and textured hair (a problem for a lot of cheaper shears). They fit comfortably on my fingers as well which means less cramping when I’m pulling off awkward angles to get harder to reach sections of my hair. Works great on wet or dry hair!”

    For Wet and Dry Cuts

    Professional Hair Cutting Shears 6″

    Looking for a pair of scissors that comes to a flat point at the tip, yet still boasts a sharp blade? It doesn’t get more affordable and effective than this pair of shears. One reviewer explains, “They are good enough for fine stuff like trimming bangs, and strong enough for the heavy lifting of cutting about 8″ off my head in big hacking cuts. They are obviously not salon quality, but they do the job perfectly.”

    At Home Touchups Kit

    Diane Home Cut Kit

    This home cut kit comes with a small cape, a comb, two clips, and a pair of sharp scissors—the perfect set for quick touchups and trims.
