Swivel scissors are all about ergonomics. Don’t be intimidated by the word, it simply means that the product was specifically designed according to the physiological requirements of the body, thereby promoting efficiency, productivity and health.
One of the few things we point out when we show these shears to stylists is the spacing in between the finger rings. Unlike traditional shears where you have to bring the finger and the thumb together, these ergonomic shears added a gap in between so that there would be less movement and less fatigue on the fingers and the base of the hand.
How do they work?
From the word swivel, this type of scissor enables you to rotate the ring where you insert your thumb, depending on the position you want them to be.
When stylists are blunt cutting, their wrists are usually bent perpendicular to the body, while the elbows and shoulders are up and hanging. Now with the swivel, because the thumb is now fully flexible, you can cut hair without having to raise your shoulder and elbow while maintaining the hands and fingers in a natural and neutral position.
This also works even when you’re cutting bangs. The scissors are in a horizontal position but your wrist, elbows and shoulders remain relaxed pointing downwards.
Your regular shears require you to adjust your hand and arms to the scissors, but the swivel adjusts the scissors to fit your most comfortable position. In addition, you won’t have to worry about pressing, bending, or tweaking your thumb into the metal ring. Since the ring rotates with the thumb, you now have a more dynamic motion and a wider range of cutting angles.
Overall, the swivel scissors place you at an advantage because it allows you to do the same amount of work but with less stress on the body.
As you progress in your career, your workload will go up. If you do not take precautionary measures now, you might as well settle with a short-lived business as potential health risks disable you from pursuing your desired path. Investing in a good pair of swivel scissors not only prevents these risks but it has also been known to reduce wrist pain over time.
