Specialised Scissor Selector Service

Colour coding system designed by THE SCISSOR BOUTIQUE for a quick, easy, visual way to select Scissors that are suitable for the correct use and compatibility of the operator. 

Each colour relates to the way you work, the type of scissor, your expectation of the products and the ideal use of the scissor. By relating to these colours and using them this copyrighted SCISSOR SELECTOR SYSTEM can aid you to choose the correct product for you and for the right application. This is a guide in general terms; if you have a more unusual and individual requirement due to cutting a specific hair or coat type, or any other use, then you may require more information. If you have any hand or wrist problems that affect the way you hold or use the scissors, or you lack experience or knowledge, or just need a little help then we are happy to discuss your individual needs. Telephone: 01553 611380 or email mandy@thescissorboutique.co.uk for more information.
