Looking for childrens scissors? Scissors are great as both a tool for cutting and styling your kid’s hair. Childrens scissors come in all sorts of shapes, colors and sizes and what is great is you can find a scissors that fits your kids personality just right. I know, its not rocket science but you do have to give it a thought. Childrens scissors are just like any other object in the house; if it does not fit your style then chances are you will not use it or recommend it to anyone else! Lets be a little more scientific; there are two types of scissors a basic round point or childrens scissors come in a variety of shapes.
Round point childrens scissors are more of a traditional design and they have the actual rounded point on the blade. These scissors are very popular because of the flexibility that they provide the user with when cutting and styling hair. There are tons of options with round point childrens scissors and this type of scissors has been around for ages, they just originated on childrens stage mostly.
Next is the square clip scissors which are usually plastic or metal and they come in multiple colors including black and green. Square clip have the benefit of being very versatile and children can use them for just about anything. Its important to note that these scissors are not to be used or even placed near hairbrushes as they can seriously hurt a child’s hand. The reason childrens scissors aren’t placed near brushes is due to the fact that childrens clipping motion has a tendency to move the hair out of the way leaving sharp edges exposed. If you do not want your child to get cut then keep their scissors in a different place from where they might end up cutting or get tangled with hair brushes and combs.
Square clip scissors come in a variety of sizes as well, there is the classic 14 clip that is perfect for childrens lower back drawings, the most common being the standard size of four by eight inches. You will also find other sizes available including the seven and five inch sizes. When selecting clip on scissors keep in mind how long the childrens current hair is and the length of their fingers as both play a role in what size of blade they should use. Keep in mind that if you ever notice your child’s fingers are getting sore from using their new scissors then it is time to change to a larger size as opposed to changing blades.
The next time you select a childrens scissors try to see how the handle sits. A lot of parents don’t bother to pay attention to this very essential part of choosing a childrens scissors, but try not to be like them. You see a lot of kids grip their scissors with their palm while other prefer to grip them by biting down on both sides. See what type of way the handle is used by seeing how it feels when you grab the scissors and pull it towards you. Remember that the handle is going to be used most often so it is extremely important to get one that is comfortable.
The last thing that you should pay attention to is how sharp the childrens scissors really are. You do not want to buy a set of childrens scissors that are not sharp because the children might end up pulling the blades out with little or no effort. I have personally seen a few sets of childrens scissors that were dull from store to store and you could tell by looking at them that the blades were not sharp. Have you ever bought a pair of scissors that were dull because the manufacturer didn’t put too much thought into making them? If you take a good look at your new pair of childrens scissors, you will know exactly which ones need sharpening. When you have purchased your pair of childrens scissors make sure you take good care of them by storing them properly.
