It is imperative to understand that not all barber scissors 440 series are the same.
In fact, there are different grades of 440 with VERY different properties.
There are 440A, 440B, and 440C.
440A and 440B are “softer” grades of 440 Steel. While they are VERY rust-resistant and will take a great-looking mirror-polished finish, they will not hold an edge nearly as well as 440C. Factories use milder steel because the blades are stamped out of a sheet of steel using dies. 440C is too hard and expensive for this process. Some manufactures are intentionally vague about the type of steel they use. If the blade is marked “stainless steel,” “surgical stainless,” or just “440 stainless,” you can bet it is 440A or 440B.
440C is considerably better and more expensive steel, and if a blade is made from 440C it will almost always be described as, or marked, “440C”.
This is one of the primary differences between mass-produced factory scissors and handmade custom scissors. Factories must use milder steel for the stamping process. A custom maker does not have this restriction since each blade is cut by hand, so a custom maker will almost always use the better cutlery steels.

Haircutting scissors are the most basic and essential tool for every barber. This is regardless of whether they are a professional or simply an amateur. Apart from the regular hair cutting shears, there are a few other types of barber shears. These are used for different hair-cutting techniques. Since these scissors are a hairstylist’s artistic tool, they must be different to achieve different ends. For example, there are different shears for cutting, thinning, texturizing, and styling.

Trendy lipstick come and go, but one shade everyone should have in their makeup is their go-to lip color that’s perfect for everyday, in any season.

Remember that dark shades will actually make your lips look smaller, while lighter shades can add plumpness.Lipstick with a matte finish can also cause lips to look thinner, while glosses and shimmery shades can make them look fuller.
2.Choose a shades that experts recommend for your skin tone. If you have light skin, try light pink, coral, peach, nudes, or beige. If you have medium skin, try rose, mauve, or berry shades.

Look for a shade that, worn with no other make up, brightens your face and makes other makeup unnecessary
