The Sephora guide to grooming scissors
Got a pair of beauty scissors in your grooming collection yet? If not, there’s no time like now to ensure your beauty bag is well stocked. Like nail clippers or eyebrow tweezers, a trusty pair of beauty scissors can be stored in even the smallest of makeup bags. You’ll be grateful for them when disaster strikes in the form of broken nails and flyaway hairs. Get them gone!
Thought all nail scissors were made equal? Check they boast the following features when picking your pair:
Stainless steel scissors: Like many beauty tools, it’s advisable to choose a product that won’t rust or wear. Opt for a pair of stainless steel scissors and they’re likely to serve you for years.
Curved scissors: Opt for a pair of beauty scissors that boast a smooth curve. This shape will reduce painful nicks and offer complete control as you use them. By choosing curved scissors you’ll benefit from an overall better cut.
Next in the Sephora guide to beauty scissors, we’ll cover their primary uses. Use your scissors for the following:
Split nails and raggedy ends are the death of even the prettiest manicure. Keep a pair of nail scissors close when you’re out and about to avoid breakages ruining your look. A pair of curved scissors will allow you to trim and shape your nails with ease.
Nail scissors aren’t just for your fingernails - you can also use them to give yourself a pretty pedicure. A little bit of pampering can do the world of good for your tootsies. Ensure you have them on hand for the summer months!
A final way to incorporate scissors into your nail grooming routine. Gorgeous nails can be let down by neglected cuticles so make sure you have an appropriate beauty tool at hand. An essential pair of cuticle scissors will tame hangnails, dry skin and cuticles.
Grooming facial hair
Many men swear by a handy pair of facial hair scissors when it comes to their grooming routine. Rather than razors that swipe away the hair at the root, use a pair of curved scissors to craft the exact look you want, whether it’s a close cut or a tamed beard.
Like razors, the purpose of a pair of eyebrow tweezers is to completely remove hairs at the root. Sometimes you want to trim the odd unruly hair without removing it altogether - that’s where beauty scissors come in useful. Keep ‘em close and rock the bold brow game!
You can use beauty scissors to tame hair on any area of the body that you want to shape rather than remove. Pesky flyaways that won’t slick back into your ponytail can be effortlessly clipped for a big night out - it’s all in your capable hands!
