The celebrated, Sun-certified Dark Stag DS1s are pure barber scissors – perfect for perfecting your partner’s lockdown look. One micro-serrated blade ensures a trustworthy cut right to the tip, making home haircuts less of a chore. Heat-treated stainless steel provides long-lasting performance in this medium-weight barber’s shear; even if your ‘Corona cut’ takes longer than you’d like, your hand won’t get tired.

When thinking about the best scissors for cutting hair at home, cheaper haircutting scissors and entry-level hairdressing scissors are obviously many wannabe stylists’ first choice. The Glamtech One comes in smaller sizes – in 5″, 5.5″, 6″, 6.5″ and 7″ varieties – and it’s one of the bestselling hairdressing scissors for a reason. Traditionally a student scissor, it makes for the perfect beginner’s blade thanks to its low, low starting price point of £19 and its super-sharp edges. With the One, you can expect an accurate, straight cut… even if it’s in the kitchen! Find the Glamtech One here.
