In my opinion the best electric shaver for use on the head and the face has
to be the Braun Series 3-340S wet and dry shaver. It's good on the head too,
take a look at the video here: https://www.youtube....h?v=72a2DyE-g8k.
You can read a full review over at ShaverSave.com if you need to know a bit
more about it. The Bald Eagle worked pretty well for some time for me, I always
use my Braun shaver now, it's surprisingly cheap too.


I have just found another review that backs up how good the Braun Series 3 is at cutting head hair however I'm not sure if it is as good as the Bald Eagle (has anyone used the Bald Eagle?) The review is here: http://www.shaversrated.com/


Hope this helps.

From what I've been reading it sounds like a good foil razor will get you the same results as a wet shave? Is that correct?


I'd love to just run over my head with a nice foil razor than have to wet shave every morning.

After checking you list and other shaver reviews, I decided to buy this one: Braun Series 7 790 CC.

What do you think about this brand?

What do you think about [Braun]?

Still very satisfied with my Braun wet/dry. Far better than the Norelco wet/dry that I first tried.

The Braun is fast, comfortable, and works great with a light touch. It cuts nearly as close as wet shaving. Locking its pivoting head is helpful around tight spots.

I use it more often, since it's so quick and easy.

Everybody's different.  I've tried so many electric shavers, all different brands, different styles (foil, rotary, you name it) and I just can't seem to steer away from wet shaving using razors.

I can't say enough about my Wahl 5-star Balding clippers. I am about a Norwood 4 but diffused so I can keep my hair I tiny bit longer than a wet shaved look. I was initially having a problem of when I shaved with a rotary or foil shaver, my hair was left too short. It would all but disappear and all one could see was the smp on the top and crown. Conversely, when I used an unguarded clipper, there was still too much of a contrast between the SMP and my real hair. The Wahl Balding clippers gives me the perfect length between an unguarded clipper and a rotary shaver.

I've personally seen the "Wahl Professional 5-Star Balding Clipper #8110" in action, and it has a great finish that also works well for those with sensitive skin or that break out easily.

I have used a Remmington 6150 and it has been great.  Almost as close as a wet razor cut.

I almost bought the Braun but many Amazon reviewers expressed frustration over replacement blades becoming very hard to find. The impression I got was perhaps they are phasing out the model.

Instead I opted for its competitor, the Panasonic Arc5 ES-LV65. I love it. Japanese made so you know it's good. It's expensive, but SMP calls for committing to daily shaves and I figure I might as well go all out and get the best, especially since my horseshoe hair is still particularly thick and fast growing.

I just bought the Braun 9 series. What a complete joy and beast to shave your head with. Soooo smooth and zero redness.
