Losing your hair years before you ever thought you would is a struggle I know well‚Äď my hair started thinning in my early 20‚Äôs! And if that wasn‚Äôt enough, figuring out how to shave my head to keep it looking presentable has proven to be a learning curve I didn‚Äôt expect either.

My first experience shaving my head began with a multi blade razor, but no matter how many mirrors I used and shaving creams I tried, I always cut up the back of my head and left patches unshaved. From there, I turned to electric shavers, but finding one that checks all my boxes and leaves my skin silky smooth hasn’t been easy.

In my quest to nail down the perfect head shaving routine, I’m putting two electric shavers to the test: Freebird (or Freedom Grooming, as they used to be known) and Skull Shaver.

Best Shave in Under 2 Minutes… Freebird

Both the Freebird and the Skull Shaver claim to give you a speedy, thorough head shave, but the Freebird really delivers the results without any stubble, cuts, or irritation. Shaving my whole head is usually a drawn-out affair, but in the time it takes for me to do other quick tasks like brush my teeth or wait for the shower to heat up, I can have a silky-smooth head. It’s really incredible!

Safest for Even Your Most Sensitive Skin… Freebird

Both the Freebird and the Skull Shaver claim to give you a speedy, thorough head shave, but the Freebird really delivers the results without any stubble, cuts, or irritation. Shaving my whole head is usually a drawn-out affair, but in the time it takes for me to do other quick tasks like brush my teeth or wait for the shower to heat up, I can have a silky-smooth head. It’s really incredible!

Most Blade Variety… Skull Shaver

Skull Shaver’s blade variety is definitely a benefit: it has 3, 4, or 5 blade count choices. Freebird only has the signature 5-blade head, and although it works amazingly well for me, I can imagine some guys out there have their own blade count preferences in mind.

Best Shave in or Out of the Shower… Freebird

The Freebird is super versatile and truly waterproof, and I get just as good of a shave whether my skin is wet or dry. I prefer to shave fully in the shower and do quick maintenance shaves dry, so it’s really important for me to have a shaver that can perform the same function no matter what the conditions are.

Quickest Cleanup… Freebird

One of my biggest pet peeves is the after shave clean-up‚ÄĒthere‚Äôs nothing worse than clearing tiny hairs out of your shaver or off your countertops. The Freebird is super easy to clean, and the blades and attachments never get clogged up with stubble (yuck!).

Most Affordable... Freebird

Much like with the blades, Skull Shaver has multiple razors to choose from. Which, honestly, I found a little confusing. Their base-level razor starts at $49.99 but you can also choose their Silver ($109.99), Gold ($139.99), or Platinum ($249.99) options. It was not exactly clear to me what the differences were to justify the varying prices. The Silver and Gold options honestly felt like the same exact shaver just with different cosmetic treatments.

Freebird only has one shaver ($49.95, save 50% with their limited time Black Friday offer) ‚Äď the FlexSeries ‚Äď which I appreciated from a simplicity standpoint. Freebird‚Äôs blade refill starts at $17.95 and you can choose between 4, 6, 8, and 10-week delivery options, so you‚Äôre never without a fresh smooth shave.

Best Overall Shaver… Freebird

What can I say? The Freebird shaver really blew me away. My head is smooth, bump-free, and I don’t dread maintaining my hair anymore. Looking to take your shave to the next level? Order your kit from Freebird today!
