When I have to write about the best men’s razor, I would instantly type ‘The Best men’s Razor In The World’ and the results come up in less than 5 seconds without needing me to try them one by one and go shiny bald. If you’re wondering about the result that I got.

Top 5 best head razor and links on where you can check these products on amazon.com if you’re triggered enough to purchase them.

1.Philips Norelco QC5580/40. Being on the top of the list due to its practicality, one that’s totally a must when you want to do head shaving on your own. It won the listdue to the price and also the unique design.
2.Skull Shaver Bald Eagle Smart. Unique design and easy to use, move easily due to its design and with the simple and ‘fit in your hand’ design, this shaver would make it easier for you to use and can be controlled perfectly. Perfect for face and head shaving.
3.Philips Norelco Shaver 4500. Good and easy to use for dual purpose, be it for your head and for your face. Not really comfortable due to the non-rotating shape, might be better if you get a help to use it but still easy to use on your face.
4.Panasonic ES-RT97-S Arc3 Electric Razor. Another all-purpose shaver. Easy ro be cleaned, to be charged, but might be a little bit difficult to use if you want to go all bald.
5.HeadBlade Sport Razor. If unique shape is a must for you then choose this one. Shaped like an ATV, this razor is for head use only.

Those are the top five razors that might meet your need. But as I’d written in an article before, choosing a razor, either for your face or for your head, is very personal what you need (and what suit you) might not even be on the list.

There are two types of shaver, whether you want an all-purpose, which can be used as a face and head shaver or a trimmer, or you can choose a head only shaver. HeadBladefor example is a head only shaver that has been designed uniquely to guarantee a clean and shiny bald head for you. And if you want to talk about the best shaver, you might need to consider getting an all-purpose shaver. Not everyone wants to trim or shave their own head. But think about it, if you have some obsession with having a bald and shiny head, but your hair growing like a weed, you might think about learning to shave your own head. It will actually shave you the cost of having to go to the barbershop, although it might not be as easy as shaving or trimming your facial hair.

It’s actually need to be considered whether you want to purchase an electronic shaver for your own use or if you’re using it for your business. If you want to use it on your own, especially for head shaving, you might need consider to purchase a shaver that can rotate and more flexible. A shaver with 180 degreesrotation might be what you need to make it easier for you to shave the back of your head, and flexibility is something you need to pay close attention. While an L, traditional shape shaver would be a better use if you want to shave others’. An L shape shaver would allow you to grasp it nicely and easily move it, while it might not be the best shape if you want to do your own shaving. Although might not be a good choice for head shaving, an L shape shaver would still be a good choice for facial trimming or shaving.

Choosing the best kind blade for you is also important. You can either choose a rotary blade, foil, or clipper for convenience sake and the best result.

A rotary blade, as I have written above would guarantee more convenience when you shave your own head. Equipped with 3 or four rotating blades, this is the perfect kind of shaver for guys with longer, thicker, and faster-growing hair as the blades would cut your hair from different directions. Not only for your head, this kind of shaver also great for your face. Though efficient, anyone with more sensitive skin need to be more careful as the fast-moving and sharp blade might cause irritation easily. And this is only recommended for anyone who wants clean shaving and not for precise shaving, for example if you want to leave a little bit of hair for sideburns or goatee. For this category, a Philips Norelco, is the best choice.

Foil Shavers is the best choice for anyone with sensitive skin as this kind of blade would minimize skin to blade contact. This blade would lift your hair before cutting it so you wouldn’t need to worry that the blade might harm your sensitive skin. Although, foil shaver might not be as flexible as other kinds of shavers so keep it in a straight line when you want to use this kind of shaver. Braun Series is the best choice for this kind of shavers.

Trimmer/Clippers. Okay, not every guys are aftering a clean, smooth and shiny result. You might want to leave a little bit of hair either when you shave your beard or your head. That’s why you need a clipper if you don’t want to go all bald but still look trim and clean. but again, this is only for those who want to leave a little bit of hair, not go all smooth, because if you’re forcing yourself, you might end up hurting your skin.

As I have mentioned before, though the list above might have given quite a variety of shavers you can choose, it would still be wise if you choose based on your needs. Because the best on the list doesn’t always mean the best for you.

Is Philips Norelco Really The Best Electric Shaver?

Whenever you’re trying to find an electric shaver, for any needs, even for sensitive skin and for women, it’s impossible to not hear the mighty name of Philips Norelco. But why? Is it really that good for shaving? All the reviews regarding shaving products, almost all of them, always put Philips Norelco as the top of the best shaver in many categories. Any male grooming sites and any men-stylists would recommend Philips Norelco as once of your shaving kit. Again, this question should be asked. Is it really that good ? Or just an overrated shaver that is actually not that good? And you can always find a better brand than Philips Norelco. Gazblogs.com would take you far to the birth of Philips Norelco shaver. Apparently, thing wasn’t always good for Norelco shaver. Far before Norelco shaver existed, Schick (yes, that Schick), had been the pioneer of electric shaver since 1928. While Philips, at the time, a Netherland company was already a big hit on the area of lightbulbs and radios and surviving the horror of 1930’s economic depression. Not until 1935, a young Dutchman called Alexandre Horowitz, who’s a designer for Philips, came to the US and decided, he had to change the future of electric shaving. Horowitz then came out with the idea of the first rotating blade and launched he very first Philishave during spring 1939. The first philishave was undoubtedly beautiful and practical, even for today standard, with cigar shape and size and elegant black colour. Unfortunately, thing wasn’t so good not only for Philips but also for the world as in 1939, the World War began.

Immediately, at the end of the war, Philips put the philishave as one of the main production and needed an innovation. The new innovation came out as Philishave came with a different shape, rather than the old and elegant black cigar shaped shaver, the shaped was changed into a more ergonomic, egg shaped, with a larger shaving head. This product was launched in 1946 and became a hit with Mr. Steelbeard was the mascot for Philishaver. until it was launched in The US at 1948. Philishaver was struggled during it was first launched but regain its market in 1951. Philshaver was known as Norelco in The US market. Philshaver was always the first on his class. It was the first to introduce the flip top cleaning system. The iconic triangle shaped head was introduced. Philshaver was also the first to introduce built in trimmer so now you can get both a shaver and a trimmer at once. This was also the first to introduce cordless shaver, and not until the 1980’s the rechargeable shaver was introduced.
Highly innovative, that must be one of the reason why philishaver is always identified with modern electric shaver. In 1992, Stefano Marzano, head of Philips Corporate Design, introduced the new rounded designs, giving a better quality and finishing result. Philishaver immediately respond to the trend of wet shaving in the 1990s. it came with the new Cool Skin design, means a waterproof, reflex action and could be used during shower, and a small amount of Nivea for Men shaving lotion could be applied directly during shaving.

It is completely useless to talk about quality if no award was presented to prove that this shaver is the leading brand. Philips shaver S5370 for example, was awarded with 2015 Design Award. Not to forget Philishaver HS190 which won the same award on the previous year. Being innovative wouldn’t be enough if Philishaver or Philips Norelco cannot respond to the needs of its consumer. Norelco read that men are not the only one potential market for modern shaver. Women need to shave too and here Norelco came to fulfill the needs. Philips Norelco Moi for Me is a product made special for the ladies. While most of men shavers are shaped like an egg with three blades, Norelco Moi for me came with the cute shape of manual razor and a beautiful blue color, with pivoting head. The curves and contours allow user to shave difficult area such as area below your calves. This razor could be used for either wet or dry situation, means the ladies need not to worry when they want to shave during shower or using cream or lotion product. Women are more sensitive toward irritation, so rather than using a rotating blade shape, Norelco Moi for Me came with shaving foil that minimize the contact between skin and blade, also the hypo allergenic shaving foil also helps to prevent rashes and irritation. Jojoba glider improves skin comfort and reducing skin friction.
Philips Ladyshave Electric Shaver is also another product from Philips for women. While more elegant and sophiscated with sleek design, Ladyshave came with the guarantee from Norelco quality. Ladies are not the only ‘special costumers’ for Norelco. Not only the ladies, there are also male costumers with sensitive skin problem. Norelco responded to this need by creating Norelco Shaver 7300 for Sensitive Skin. Came with anti-friction microbead which coated the blade, resulting smooth glide. And with gentle precision blade system, this shaver will protect your skin while cutting very close to your skin. Unique aquatec technology allows this shaver to be used in both wet and dry situation, and shave to be used alongside shaving cream or other anti-irritation skin care products.

And what’s the best feature from Norelco Philips? Of course, being the pioneer for rotary shaver, Norelco can actually brag about being the best electric shaver. Take a look at one of its best design, Philip Norelco SensoTouch 3D. Being a rotary shaver, means that this shaver is good for both head and facial shaving. Norelco SensoTouch 3D is designed with 3 independent round foils which really sticks and moves along your face that can help to reach your hairs and stubbles easily.
