Yes. We're finally talking all things head-shaving. Sure, the Single Edge was designed for an incredibly close and comfortable face shave, but does it work on heads? The short answer: yes, but with the right technique!

Before we jump into all things head shaving, we must offer a simple caveat. The Single Edge razor has a slight learning curve associated with it and was initially designed for the unique contours of faces and necks.

If you were to ask us which razor to use for your head, we would 100% recommend the SE, since it includes our NickStop™  technology to help with the unique curves and bumps in your noggin. And before attempting your first head shave, we recommend getting comfortable with your technique using the razor on your face.

The Tools

The Preparation

Start with a nice, warm shower. The steam and warm temperature will soften your hair and open up pores, preparing your skin. If you don't have time for a shower, use a damp, warm towel instead. Massage the scalp thoroughly with your fingertips, making sure to stimulate your scalp throughout the process.

Next, you'll want to map the direction of your hair growth. This step is especially important when shaving your head because we recommend only shaving with the grain. Shaving against the grain will increase the possibility of irritation and nicks on your cabeza. ¡No es bueno!

The Lather

Fill your shave bowl or mug with hot water and let it sit for a few minutes so the bowl can heat up. Once it is warm, dump out the water. Our Marble Shave Bowl is designed to retain heat three times longer than ceramic bowls. Next, take a finger scoop of shave cream and rub it into the bottom of the bowl. With your brush, whip the cream into a thick lather. If you're having trouble building a thick, foamy lather, just add more water until it reaches your preferred consistency.

To apply, use circular motions with your shave brush to cover your entire head in a cushiony lather. Using a shave brush to apply cream will gently lift hairs in preparation for your shave.
