How To Use Thinning Shears. It needs to be 2 to 3 inches from the ends of your hair. As with most hairstyling procedures its best if your hair is in its best condition before you start.
It is better to allow an authorized hairdresser to thin your strands. Choose whether to do the thinning on wet or dry hair. The thinning shears have teeth on the single side and on the other side there is a sharp blade that is there to chop off the hair.
Wet hair is easier to work with but with dry hair its easier to gauge your progress.
The hair that frames the face is often avoided too. Close the thinning shears over the hair and then open. Take the thinning shears and angle with the serrated edge facing downwards. The blades must go to the very least 3 inches 76 cm far from your scalp.
