7 of the best head shavers for men in 2024

The best balding clippers, trimmers, and head shavers.

Whether you’re already bald, thinning out, or painfully watching your hairline recede, investing in one of these quality head shavers is the difference between getting the chrome dome of your dreams, or not.

High-tech hair removers are often specifically designed to make shaving your head easier, whether it’s through an ergonomic grip design (your hands will thank you) or close-cutting technology (or both).

So if you’re opting for the at-home shaving route (which is far easier than heading to the barbershop every few days, in our opinion), these electric shavers are meant to be used at home in the comfort of your own bathroom, and are damn good at their job.

So without further adieu, whether you choose to don going full bald, a buzz cut, skin fade, or to shape-up what’s left—these are our pick of the best head shavers available right now.

What do I need to consider when choosing a head shaver?

When it comes to picking a head shaver that works beast for you, there are three things you need to consider:

1. The number of shaving heads: While a higher number of razor heads will help hug the curves of your head, they can also help limit cuts.

2. Wet/dry design: Pretty much all head shavers can be used dry, which means as long as your hair is already short enough you can shave with no moisture or product. Waterproof options will allow you to shave in the shower, which is super easy to clean up. Plus, you can use most wet/dry shavers with shaving products, so if you prefer begin with a pre-shave oil to protect your scalp and then add a shaving cream or lotion to help with glide.

3. A cordless design: A good cordless head shaver can last up as long as 90 minutes. They also unlock the ability to shave in the shower or on the go without having to be plugged in.
