When cutting hair we need a good pair of scissors, but we also need a few other accessories to keep us going. Our hair cutting combs are important as well. How many combs do we need to cut hair? Let us help you choose the best combs for your tool kit!
Which hair comb do you need? Let's break down the different combs and which is the right tool for you!
You may want to consider specific cutting combs when cutting hair. The standard cutting comb will have two parts. One side will have wider teeth while the either side will have fine teeth. This gives you the best of both worlds when cutting hair. You may also find that some cutting combs have one shortened and spaced out tooth. This is perfect for creating hair sections. You will also find the perfect cutting comb will help you measure. This means that when a client asks for "a centimetre off" your comb will have a centimetre measurement for you to show them. These little added features will make your life so much easier!
If you're on the comb search you have probably come across some plastic ones, rubber ones or even carbon combs. Which should you choose?
If you're a barber or find that you have many short hair cut clients, you may want to consider a few other combs.
A good barber comb will be made from either rubber or good plastic. The teeth may be a little wider apart and will be the same length and width for the whole comb. This is the best comb to use when doing scissor over comb and will ensure that you get the desired length right every time.
You will also need a proper clipper comb. A good clipper comb will be made from a strong rubber or plastic. It needs the strength to hold up to your clipper blade. It will also be flexible so that you can reach anywhere on the head. You'll find the best barber combs also have a sturdy handle. This style comb is a must for blending, trimming and tapering a haircut.
This decision is totally up to you ! We hope this blog has helped you decide which is the best cutting comb for you to add to your tools !
