    A good haircut begins with sharp, precise scissors that are comfortable to securely hold and maneuver. They should not split or damage hair, so they need to stay sharp enough to glide somewhat effortlessly along the strands. If you’re concerned with comfort, look for rubber inserts inside the finger holds – and make sure the finger openings are large enough for your fingers. A case is also a nice extra, to keep them protected – especially if you will be traveling with them or storing them in a bag. The ideal length to look for is 6.5 inches, for the ability to cut most lengths of hair on children and adults. A Japanese stainless steel body tends to hold up best. You’ll spend between $10 and $15 for most hairdressing scissors.
