I'm Xtah and this is what is the point of thinning scissors or as we professionals call them thinning shears. Well there's actually two kind of things for your thinning shears, one is going to be somebody who has really thick hair that it really kind of lays dead. It has no movement, no nothing and so you want to use thinning shears because of a style thing or as movement. The other side is to add texture to the hair so other than that it's going to look like a big sheet, it's going to look plain. You want some movement, some life in the hair so the thinning scissors are going to thin it out so that it has a little bit more movement to it or for that particular kind of hairstyle it is going to add a little bit more texture to the hair.
