A popular style for barbering with great flexibility and ideal for scissor over comb work. With wide teeth for low-tension cutting and fine teeth for precision control. The carbon composition of the cutting comb ensures that they are anti-static, and heat and chemical resistant. Ideal for everyday use in the barbershop.
Provides an even, consistent cut
One of the most popular techniques for cutting and trimming men’s hair is the scissor over comb method. This comb can also be used for clipper over comb work, but it is primarily aimed at scissor work. It’s a fundamental skill to master, it provides an even, consistent cut, and is ideal for removing significant amounts of thick hair. A variety of different finishes to this cut are possible.
Ideal for use at home or in a professional setting
The cutting comb should be held in the less dominant hand and used to lift hair at a 90-degree angle away from the scalp. The barber can then hold the scissors in the dominant hand and move up the comb, cutting off the hair sticking out beyond the comb’s teeth. For a tapered effect, with long hair at the top and short hair at the bottom, the comb will need to be angled. We suggest that you perform scissor over comb technique on dry or slightly damp hair for best results. Wet hair can potentially clump and result in an uneven cut.
