Shaving your head is one of the most liberating haircuts you can have. Not only do the ladies love it but it can be a great solution for balding men. I have a close friend named Steve that started to bald at 28 years old. This, of course, affected his self-esteem and by 30, he had given up hope on living the quality of life he had enjoyed up to that point.
I think the final straw was the night we all went to the bar and as we were talking to some beautiful ladies one of them asked him if he was my older brother. I don’t think this would have offended anyone else but for Steve, it was the last straw. He explained the struggle of the balding man to me that night and we commiserated over some fresh brews. As luck would have it, I was in a position of power to help my friend out.
Steve had always had great hair and never shaved his head before. He joked that his family was going to think he was sick or something. I told him that was all nonsense and proceeded to list a myriad of famous bald guys that ladies adore. I didn’t have to get to Van Diesel before he was already picturing himself saving the princess in the next blockbuster hit.
I congratulated him on accepting his new lease on life and told him, not only would I help him find the perfect solution to his problem, but I would shave my head as well. I had hyped myself up at this point so why not. This is what we learned on the journey to find Steve the best razor to shave his head.
How to Choose the Best Razor to Shave Head – Different Razor Types
The Best Razor to Shave Head – What Are the Best Brands?
There is no shortage of razor manufacturers and yes, just about any razor can shave your head if done properly but nothing beats the feeling of a top quality razor leaving you smooth and soft. These are my choices for the top 5 best razors to shave head.
The HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor represents a shift by manufacturers to find better and more innovative ways to provide their customers with a close comfortable shave. This unit is by far the easiest to use, you literally just roll it over your head.
Specifically Designed for Head Use
Hard to Shave Face
This intuitive design allows you to shave faster and with better results. The multi-blade cartridge gives you a smooth head every time. If you are worried about shaving your head this is the perfect razor for you. It’s a great price and you can’t beat the usability. I like the intuitive design of this razor and I think we are going to see other manufacturers begin to get more original as they see how popular this razor becomes.
The Gillette Mach3 Turbo Men’s Razor is the original multi-blade disposable razor that changed it all. This blade makes it easy to get a close shave without slicing into your budget. The three-blade design cuts closer than single blade razors without causing razor bumps.
Ergonomically Designed Handle
Skin Guard Fins
This is one of the first disposable razors I ever owned and until this day this brand has always given a clean close shave without any irritation. As far as disposable razors go, this is one of the best. If you are looking to stay sharp on the go, a disposable razor like the Mach3 Turbo can be a wise choice. You get great cutting ability at a reasonable price point.
The Merkur Long Handled Safety Razor provides you with a more traditional way to stay crisp. This traditionally designed safety razor provides you with a smooth shave without any chance of razor bumps. I like the feel of single-bladed razors but it did take a few tries for me to get the technique down proper.

This razor not only works great but it looks awesome as well. The chrome plating really adds to the overall aesthetics of this razor giving a look similar to units that cost 3 times as much. I have always been a fan of Merkur and I think they have kept their tradition of excellence alive with the introduction of this cost effective single blade razor. If you need a quality razor that you can use for years to come, this is a great selection for you.
The OneBlade Stainless Steel Safety Razor represents the pinnacle in manscaping tools. This no-nonsense razor outperforms the competition in every category. The high-grade German Stainless Steel body is coated with a Teflon protective layer. I am a fan of the quick blade change on this razor also; you can swap a blade out in seconds.
