A career in cosmetology can be very rewarding. As with any job that requires frequent use of your hands, it’s important to know how to take care of yourself to avoid injury. For some advice on how to hold your haircutting scissors, take a look at this brief video.
Hairdressers can be susceptible to repetitive motion injuries if they do not exercise proper technique. When holding haircutting shears, you should make sure that your wrist remains as straight as possible. If your wrist bends too frequently in one direction or the other, you can develop painful issues like carpal tunnel syndrome. Try to position your client so that you move as little as possible while performing her haircut.
