I am looking to buy a pair of hair dresser scissors as a gift. I have ~$100 to spend although I really should spend more like $70. I know the advice is to try them first but I can't do that.

So.... Do you have any suggestions for me?

On most threads I see people really like Joewell. I could only afford the low end Jowell S2 line (See on amazon). Do you think those are the best for the price?

I noticed the Jowell S2 (s) are not convex blades which a lot of people seem to think has an advantage. Would I be better going with a different brand that is convex?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi same here
I have the Jowell Classic 5 and a half inch I don't think you could go wrong with them as they are nice and slicy too
BTW what are these convex blades ( like clam shaped ):eek: ?
I think perhaps we may have a different name for them in the UK ? LOL

Hi

I have had loads of Jowells i prefer the 4.5 inch myself they are quite pricey but good, At the moment i have Yasaka which are a lot less money and imo just as good.

I have had covex they are good but tbh its what you do with them that counts xx
