How to use different blending or thinning shears to achieve different results
A blending shear is great for removing interior weight, texturizing the surface layer, creating volume and even for entire haircuts! Choosing the right professional shear for you and the end result you would like to achieve is essential.
Sam Villa offers two blending shears - also called thinning or texturizing shears, the Signature Series Reversible Blending Shear and the Essential Series Reversible Blender .
Our Signature Series Reversible Blending Shear features a radial 42 tooth pattern with "V" teeth. These shears will extract a decent amount of weight and will create beautiful soft texture without any hard lines.
Our Essential Series Shear features a 30 tooth pattern and is much more forgiving than the Signature Series Shear. This is an excellent shear for beginning blenders and for those that wish to remove less weight.
For more tips and tricks on how to use both of these shears, watch the video as Andrew Carruthers, Cultural Ambassador for Sam Villa explains the best ways to use our blending shears.
