Hi, I'm Xtah, and this is how to choose the length of your hair cutting scissors or as a professional calls them shears, scissors are for clothing or cutting paper. So if you are looking to find the right length, honestly I'll tell you it is all about a personal preference. I actually have a few different sizes for the different things that I'm doing. If you are doing a blunt bottom cut for long hair, such as mine or our model, you usually want to tend to get a longer scissor so you can get that straighter line much easier and much faster. But if you are doing something like layers or a short men's cut you don't want something that's so long, it's kind of like thinking through what you are going to do. The shorter scissors are much easier to handle when you are doing layering but if you are doing a one length cut to make a nice bottom base, you kind of want to try to get something that's a little bit longer.
