Traveling is an exciting adventure and filled with experiences. However, if you're a hairdresser, the idea of traveling with your scissors can cause you some headaches. Don't worry! In this article, we'll give you some useful tips to be able to travel with your hairdressing scissors without having to worry about damaging or losing them during the journey. 

Can I take my hairdressing scissors in my hand luggage? 

It's important to know that, in most cases, hairdressing scissors cannot be carried in the hand luggage. Therefore, it is recommended to place them in your checked baggage. That being said, if you need to carry your hairdressing scissors in your hand luggage, you may need to obtain prior authorization from the airline or transportation security agency. In some cases, it may be necessary to show a copy of your hairdressing license to prove that your scissors are work tools. So, it is best to always carry this copy with you when traveling with your hairdressing scissors. 

Tips to travel with your work tools without worries 

The first thing you should keep in mind when traveling with your hairdressing scissors is that regulations and restrictions vary depending on the airline you are flying with and country you are traveling to and from. To avoid disappointments, it is better to ensure the regulations of the airline you have chosen to avoid unpleasant surprises at the airport. 

Another very important point is the need to have a suitable case for your scissors if you plan to travel. This must have excellent quality, as it is responsible for protecting your delicate tool from impacts. It also avoids contact with other elements that may scratch or damage the surface of the blades or handles. This means that you will not have to sharpen your scissors as frequently, which will save you time and money in the long run. If you are going to carry several scissors, make sure they are well protected and separated from each other to avoid hitting each other. Therefore, it is necessary to have enough space for the scissors and other accessories to always keep them organized.
