Thinning or texturizing scissors remove bulk from thick hair, making it more manageable. Both short and long hairstyles can benefit from thinning. Curly-haired women can thin out hair to prevent long locks from looking poofy or getting triangle head. The key to rocking texturizing shears is balance: You should only be thinning out hair every third time you cut it, and if you dial up the thinning too much your hair will suffer. Less is generally more with these shears, and knowing how to use them is a major tool in your at-home beauty arsenal.
