The overall handle dynamics are fundamental when it comes to using a scissors / shear for longer work hours.

Texturizing shears, blending shears, and thinning shears are pretty different in their respective functions.

As the name indicates, a blending shear is used to blend the hair and remove extra weight. These shears are usually perfect to be used for dense and curly hair types.

The thinning shears are limited to removing extra hair weight alone. The shears can’t perform tasks like blending the hair as well.

And finally, a texturizing shear is all about texturizing hair as part of finalizing the look at the end of a haircut.

Now, the last factor that determines whether or not a particular shear is suitable for your use depends upon the dynamics of your work routine itself. From the types of hair you usually deal with to the number of hours you put in your work, you need to evaluate each factor before going with an option thoroughly.
