In this video, Kitty from Transgroom shares her tips on how to hold grooming scissors correctly. She explains that holding the scissors correctly is essential for both accuracy and safety. She also provides some helpful exercises to help you improve your grip and technique.

 Here are some of the key tips that Kitty shares in the video:

  • Hold the scissors in your dominant hand with your thumb on top and your index finger on the side.
  • Curl your other fingers around the handle for support.
  • Keep your elbows close to your body to maintain control of the scissors.
  • When cutting, make sure to close the blades before making contact with the fur.
  • Open the blades as you draw the scissors through the fur.
  • Practice holding and using the scissors in a variety of positions to find what is most comfortable for you.

Kitty also recommends using a variety of different grooming scissors for different tasks. For example, thinning shears are good for removing bulk, while texturizing shears can be used to create a more defined look. She also recommends using sharp scissors to get the best results.
