Light scissors (approx. 50 g), made entirely of metal - possibly with plastic-covered arms - with triangular narrow (approx. 1 cm) blades, with which the hairdresser cuts hair.
The hairs are taken per strip between index and middle fingers and cut to the desired length.
The tailor also uses such scissors to cut delicate fabrics such as lingerie.
