Hi I'm new to this. You seem to know quite a bit about the industry. Your comments I have seen are very intersting.
I read one of your comments on thinning shears and that you could get a perfectly good thinning shear for about 75.00. The ones the barber uses. You recommended 4420 as good shears. Do you have a name brand for them? I am interested in buying a perfectly good pair of thinning shears for that price, rather then spend more money. I also want to use them for asian hair to point cut into the ends of layers to make the hair very wispy, and spacious and pointy. I've seen a lot of asian women with this particular look and watched how the stylist achieved it. Very interesting to me anyway. Well, one way of achieving that look. So if you could give me a little bit more info on the scissors, that would be great.

I googled 4420 shears and came up with a lot of hits. I believe the brand is called 44/20. They are not stainless steel so they will discolor. But I hear a lot of good things about them. You can get them on ebay, too. Just google it for more info.
