**Micro-serrations are, as the name suggests,very fine grooves machined into the cutting edges of your scissors, as can be seen in the picture below. They help to grip the hair and reduce blade "fatigue" when the cutting edges may begin to become dull through constant use. Many new scissors are now supplied with one scissor blade micro-serrated. When scissor sharpening, any existing serrations are inevitably removed, so should be specified if you wish them to be replaced.
