What’s The Best Electric Shaver for Heads?
We say this here at Razor Foundation again and again but shaving is a personal thing and as such there is no one right answer. However, we are here to steer you in the right direction. Before being able to choose the best electric head shaver for you, there are a number of things to consider.
Cost – First of all you need to establish a budget. Professional clippers can cost well over 100 dollars where as you can pick up a cheaper option for under 20. The cheaper options normally do the job so it is only really worth spending additional money if you need a specialist feature, such as enough power to cut very thick and long hair.
The blades – first of all you need to decide whether you want foil clippers or a rotary electric shaver. Clippers will be more powerful and can handle long and thick hair, but rotary blades will normally offer a closer shave. If you decide to go for clippers, you need to consider the different blade sizes (and thus hair length) and whether you need them to be adjustable.
Functionality – do you like to shave in the shower? Should the shaver be water proof? Does it need to be cordless or are you happy to be near a plug socket? How you will use the shaver is of the upmost importance when considering which one to buy.
