Let's discuss wet and dry haircutting scissors

Wet and dry haircutting scissors are two types of scissors that are used in hair cutting. The main difference between them is their intended use - wet scissors are designed to be used on wet hair, while dry scissors are designed to be used on dry hair.

Wet haircutting scissors are typically made from stainless steel or titanium and are designed to be used on wet hair, such as after shampooing. The blades of wet scissors are usually longer and thinner than those of dry scissors, and they often have micro-serrations or other texturing on the blades to help grip and cut through wet hair. Wet scissors are also often coated with a rust-resistant material to help protect them from damage caused by exposure to water.

Dry haircutting scissors, on the other hand, are designed to be used on dry hair. They are usually made from harder, more durable steel than wet scissors and are designed to cut through dry hair without causing damage or split ends. Dry scissors often have sharper, more precise blades than wet scissors, as they do not need to grip wet hair in the same way.

It's worth noting that some hair stylists prefer to use one type of scissors for all their hair-cutting needs, while others prefer to use both wet and dry scissors depending on the task at hand. Ultimately, the choice between wet and dry scissors will depend on the individual stylist's preferences and the needs of their clients.
