Choosing Shavers (Buying tips)

Shaving head: Choose a men’s shaver with long slots for shaving long hairs on the chin, upper lip, or head. Look for one with a shaving head with holes for removing stubble.

Dual blade: Choose a shaver with double blades to get closer shaves. One blade lifts each strand of hair above the skin while the other nips the elevated strand safely to prevent nicks.

Hair collection compartment: Choose a shaver with a hair collection compartment to prevent shaved hair strands from falling on the floor or carpet. Clean out the chamber regularly to prevent blockage.

Trimmer attachments: Choose a shaver with various trimmer attachments for controlling the length of hair to be trimmed as well as the shaving style.
