Which hairdressing scissors are best for casual use?

Can anyone give me some advice on buying hairdressing scissors?

I want to buy some just for trimming my dds' and my own hair so I don't want to pay too much but on the other hand I want them to do a good job.

I have some very cheap ones already that I bought when I first thought I would give it a go but they aren't sharp enough, they push the hair along rather than slice through it.

I was looking at these on amazon and wondered if they would be ok for what I want, but also wondered if this cheaper pair would do as good a job for less.

Although they both have 5 star reviews there aren't enough reviews for either pair for me to feel confident about the quality of what I would be buying as I really don't have a clue what brands and sellers are worth looking at.

Any advice would be welcome and appreciated.

Argh! Please don't cut hair unless you are a hairdresser. I don't have any advice apart from that I'm afraid.
