What Could be the Best Electric Razor for Shaving Heads?

what could be the best electric razor for shaving head

Getting the right tool for the right job has ever been an important part of our lives. The same applies to the shaving world. There are so many electric razor brands on the market and each comes up with colorful products, click bait newsletters and advertorial material to get you to buy them. While all these form an essential part of the marketing arena, some products aren’t worth spending on. Let’s have a quick look at some of the best electric razor for shaving head.

5 best electric razors for shaving heads

1. Philips Norelco QC5580/40 Hair Clipper Pro

Having spotted it at number one on most shaving razors blogs, I’ve been led to believe this electric razor must be an excellent choice. There are three reasons why this shaver comes at the top.

  • Trims long hair first before giving a bald shave
  • Has a unique head design
  • Its price is reasonable

The most interesting feature on Philips Norelco QC5580/40 is its rotating head that easily moves through an angle of 180 degrees. This design makes it easy for you to shave even the most difficult areas of your head by adjusting the head to a suitable cutting angle.

This razor’s rotating head is a convenient feature that most other razors don’t offer. See, you don’t have to contort your head in all directions to get a cleaner, close shave. Just rotate the head, and the razor will shave your jaw line, bead and chin areas without cutting you or leaving hair behind.

If you don’t want a complete bald shave, the dial on its head can allow you to select a different trimming length that suits your needs. The only shortcoming about this razor is that its balding attachment is not a rotary shaver but a foil one. Rotary shavers are known to provide a complete bald shave than the foil ones.

Additional features

  • Lithium Ion battery that lasts for about an hour when on use.
  • Has a battery level indicator. Displays an orange light when the battery is low and white when it’s full.
  • Compatible with many voltage levels
  • Comes with a mirror to help you get a clear view of hard-to-shave areas


2. Skull Shaver Bald Eagle Smart

Skull Shaver Bald Eagle Smart is the new kid on the block that is slowly attracting a following. With over a thousand positive reviews on many platforms, this razor surely deserves the top position. So what makes it so special?

Bald Edge Smart is an excellent razor that comes with five rotary blades. As mentioned before, the rotary blades are the best when it comes to providing the best head shave. The five blades make shaving a few minutes activity. No need to make several passes or apply much pressure to get a clean bald shave.

Additionally, this razor’s small design with a short handle makes handling pretty simple. You can move it in any direction of your head including the back without cutting yourself. Other things that you can like about this blade include:

  • It’s flexible and comfortable.
  • Can be used for both wet and dry shaving
  • Easy to clean
  • Has a battery level indicator
  • It takes about 2 hours to get fully charged.
  • Can be used for about 3 hours before it runs empty of charge


3. Philips Norelco Shaver 4500 (AT830/46)

I wasn’t looking forward to mentioning two products from the same manufacturer, but this razor’s exceptional features couldn’t be overlooked. While its sister (or brother) at No. 1 has a foil shaver, this one has a rotary- which shaves better as indicated earlier on. Philips Norelco Shaver 4500 (AT830/46) is a dual purpose razor and delivers a good outcome on your head and face as well.

This razor has three blades suitable for cutting both long hairs and stubble. They can serve both wet and dry shaving needs. The blades freely rotate on the razor’s pivot system as they slice off hairs right from the spot where they emerge. However, compared to the first two razor above, this one falls short in performance-especially when it comes to maneuverability. It’s had to get it to cut the hairs on the far sides of your head.

Its battery when fully charged can support 50 minutes of use.


4. Panasonic ES-LA93-S Arc4

Despite being a foil based razor, Panasonic ES-LA93-S Arc4 is one of the comfortable and easy to maneuver razors out there. It’s equipped with two motors that make its performance something to be in awe of. It also comes with a self-cleaning system for those who don’t like to manual cleaning every other time.

Panasonic ES-LA93-S Arc4 is also a dual purpose razor with 4 foil blades that guarantee a bald finish; that’s if you’ll need it. When fully charged, you can use it for 50 minutes. It takes a considerably short time to get fully charged.

Additional features

  • Has a battery level indicator
  • Suitable for both wet and dry shaving

This razor is a bit noisy and heavier than those above it. It’s also a bit pricey considering its versatility.


5. HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor

If you want a razor that is cheap, fun to use and specifically designed for the head, HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor is your best option. This toy-looking razor comes with a suspended cartridge bearing four blades for a cleaner shave. There are two tires on its back and a handle for firmer grip. Grab the handle and “drive” this toy on your head, and you’ll get the look you want. Reminds you when you were five, doesn’t it?

HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor doesn’t come with a clipper attachment, so you need to use a different tool before introducing this one for a clean finish. This razor needs you to learn a bit about it before using. Patience is also necessary; spinning it on your head for the first few days can make you feel like you are losing it. However, after some time, you’ll actually enjoy taking it for a ride on your head.

This razor comes with a few challenges. First, it can’t cut hair on some parts like behind your ears and second, it needs some time to master how it works. Remember to detach the blades if your kid insists on taking it for a spin.


There are many best electric razors for shaving head. When you don’t know what to go for, try the choices above. Remember to take into account all the factors like the technology of the razor, its capabilities, and your budget as well.

I use to watch my dad shave every morning before he went to work. When I was old enough to shave all I could think about was using an old school straight razor as my dad did. I want to share all I know on this blog about shaving and using razors. I love sharing and writing about this lost art.
