The straight dog grooming scissor is a quintessential part of any dog groomer’s scissor set! Straight scissors are universally used by amateurs and pros alike due to its versatility and usefulness in a variety of different dog grooming situations.

The straight scissor works by using sharp convex blades to make straight cuts in a dog’s coat. Allowing dog groomers to take away unwanted hair easily and leave the dogs they groom with clean and tidy haircuts.

The straight scissor is not one that can be overlooked by any dog groomer! If you’re interested in picking up a high quality pair of straight scissors you can our whole range here (we personally love our Flame Straights!).

The curved dog grooming scissor is another amazing tool many groomers should consider adding to their kit. Unlocking the key to shaping methods that are seen in more creative haircuts (like Asian Fusion).

Curved dog grooming scissors allows you to follow and complement the natural contours of the dog’s body. Areas like the back of legs, ribs & faces are great spots that allow the magic of these scissors to shine.

If you’re looking to go beyond the basic haircut and graduate up to the next level of dog grooming getting a pair of served scissors is essential! If you’re looking for a fantastic pair of reliable curved grooming scissors you can find our range here!

Chunker dog grooming scissors are another step up from the standard styling straight/curved scissors can provide. These scissors feature a unique combination of a strong blade and teeth that comb out the hair.

When these two blades work together they comb out small sections of hair and cut them away from a dog’s coat. This allows you to add interesting textures to a dog’s hair and also remove any unwanted scissor marks! Leaving a very natural looking finish to a dog’s coat.

Chunkers allow groomers to unlock a further level of creativity in their haircuts. So if you’re looking to be a ‘cut’ above the rest you should consider getting a pair. If you’re interested in getting your own pair of chunkers you can explore our range here (we also have a curved option!).

Thinner dog grooming scissors are another step up from the chunkers. Designed for all the perfectionists out there who want to control every fine detail of the haircuts they give.

Designed in a similar way to the previously mentioned chunkers featuring two unique blades. The part where these two scissors diverge is in the size of the teeth featured on the blade. Thinners feature a much finer set of teeth, allowing you to comb out much smaller sections of a dog’s coat for cutting.

Thinner scissors allow you to really add different textures to a dog’s coat that can make for some really interesting haircuts. Definitely grab yourself a pair of these scissors if you’re looking to perfect your haircuts.

Dog grooming scissors allow groomers to do the amazing job they do! They are an essential part of every groomer’s daily life and therefore should be overlooked.
