  • Offset Shears

    Can anyone give me the low down on offset shears. Are they handy to have, what situation are they used in, are they your everyday shears? Any input about these would be great Thanks!!

    All my big shears are offsets. The only ones I have that aren't offset are my little detailing scissors and a small thinning scissor. And all but one of my shears are also bent shanks.

    Offsets relieve a lot of stress on your hands, because they move your forward, in a more natural position. Bent shanks are nice because the blades are closer to the hair than your hand, making them a little more manuverable, and are especially nice when scissoring feet.

      I luv off set shears I use them for almost everything. The best part is our hand doesn't mush the hair down as your trying to sisccor it.
      Never gonna know if you never even try

        Do you mean offset or bent shank? Offsets just move your forward, bent shanks keep your hand back, so you're not mushing the hair down as you scissor.
