Spring cleaning can take many forms. One classic way to wash away the woes of winter is to buzz your head. There are few things more satisfying than taking a shaver to the cranium and giving your hair the old heave-ho. You’ll feel brand new—lighter, cooler, and smoother to the touch. You won’t have to check your hair in the mirror, because…you’ll barely have any. But one shouldn’t shave their head with just any electric shaver. The last thing you want is a jagged buzz cut or to have to hack away at thicker patches of hair. Certain shavers are designed specifically for the task of mowing your mane. Here are some of our favorite electric shavers for the head available today.
