Lightbulb Top electric razors and shavers reviews
Posted by: A London Barber - 08-07-2018 12:14 PM - Replies (1)

A comparison guide on some of the best men's electric razors and shavers currently available
Men's electric razors have come a long way. They now have modern technology that makes the shaves smoother than they have ever been. And they are much easier to clean. Most are just rinse and go. Be careful when shopping around. Many places sell refurbished shavers, so if the price looks way to low, read the fine print carefully. It is perfectly ok to buy a refurbished men's electric razor, as long as you know it is refurbished. In this case, make sure you check and see if the guarantee is still in effect. These men's electric razors are from some of the top manufacturers and you will find one to fit just about any budget.

For more on electric shaver reviews, see this section of the forum: http://www.menshairforum.com/talk/Forum-...g-Products

Remington Clean Xchange Men's Electric Shaver
This men's electric shaver is battery operated and it will run for a half hour on a charge. It has a 15 minute automatic shut off, takes an hour to fully recharge and never needs cleaning. This is a great one for the world traveler because it automatically adjust to the different voltage in other countries. The Remington CleanXchange is a medium priced electric shaver.

Panasonic ES-RT51-S Men's Electric Razor With Linear Motor and HydraClean Automatic Cleaning
This men's electric shaver is at the top of the Panasonic line. They claim it has the sharpest blades of any electric shaver and it has Panasonic's HydraClean™ system that automatically clean and dries the shaver and recharges it as well. It comes with a travel pouch, AC recharger and a storage stand and docking station. The Panasonic ES-RT51-S is a high-price electric shaver worth its price, that's for sure!

Wahl Flex Shave Rechargeable Corded / Cordless Electric Mens Shaver

Philips Norelco PT730 Powertouch Men's Electric Shaver
Norelco is famous for their three round shaving heads, which give 50% more shaving surface than traditional ones. It has a special antimicrobial coating which allows it to be cleaned by just rinsing. The Philips Norelco PT730 Powertouch is a high-end electric razor and its quality is similar to the high-quality of the aforementioned Panasonic ES-RT51-S electric razor!

Braun Series 7-790cc Complete Men's Electric Shavers w/Recharger
This men's electric razor can be used with or without the power cord, has a multi-message LCD panel, operates cordless for 50 minutes at a time and fully charges in one hour or charges in 3 minutes for a quick job. The Braun Series 7-790cc electric razor is usually the electric razor for men with the highest price, but, again, you're paying for quality, so the Braun Series 7-790cc electric shaver is worth a look!

Thumbs Up Reviews of good shaving razors for men
Posted by: A London Barber - 08-07-2018 11:49 AM - Replies (1)

A review of the best manual shaving razors for dudes
Men's manual razors have come a long way in the past 10 years with more blades, electric vibrating technology, and even trimmers. This review will take a look at 5 of the best manual razors for men, what makes them so good, where to get them, and an average price. FYI, there are more shaver reviews from myself and others in this sub-forum: http://www.menshairforum.com/talk/Forum-...g-Products

Gillette Fusion Power Razor
The Gillette Fusion Power razor is a great men's manual razor that delivers exceptional results. This razor has 5 blades that are closer together than a razor with less blades, this creates less irritation from razor burn and makes for a very close shave. This shaving system also comes with a precision blade on the back for close trimming where a 5 blade system is too big. This trimmer blade is very useful for any touch ups on a short beard. This product also has electric power to make whiskers stand on edge for an even closer shave. The Gillette fusion power razor can be found for around $8 dollars, euros or British pounds.

Gillette Fusion Phenom
This is another great men's manual razor from Gillette. This razor has 5 close together blades for a close comfortable shave and has as precision trimmer on the back for hard to shave spots. This razor is not however electric; however shares the same razor cartridges as the Gillette fusion power razor. The blades have a fading strip to indicate when it is time to change the blade. The Gillette Fusion Phenom can be found for around $10 dollars/euros/pounds at your local drug store or pharmacy (e.g. Boots).

Schick Hydro 5 Body Groomer and Shaver
This all-round razor from Schick is a great manual razor with an attached trimmer. This razor features four titanium blades that can be used in the shower and one trimming blade on the back of the cartridge for a precise cut. The handle of the razor has a great small power trimmer for precision trims and overly long hair spots. The Schick Hydro 5 trimmer and razor is a great all in one men's manual razor and it can be found for around $12 dollars/pounds at most local stores.

Gillette Mach3 Men's razor
This manual razor from Gillette comes with three blades that deliver a close shave. The Gillette Mach3 razor actually works well for a three bladed razor and provides very minor irritation and in fact gives a very close shave. The Gillette Mach3 product can be found for around 9 bucks (be it US dollars, euros or pounds). It's very cheap for what you're truly getting.

Schick Quattro Titanium Razor
This epic Schick shaving razor provides a close shave using its four titanium coated blades. The razor is easy to hold and use and comes with a conditioning strip built right into the blade cartridge. This is a great men's manual razor, the blades also last for a good amount of time, and I have used the same blade for about a 1-2 months before replacing. This product can be found for less than $10 dollars/euros/pounds.

  Clippers cut beard but not hair
Posted by: Duhjoker - 05-03-2018 12:31 AM - No Replies

Hi guys

I actually googled the title first but all the hits were about beard trimming and had nothing to do with up there hair.

My problem is that i’ve been using a pair of wahl clipoers for more than a 8 years and they cut my beard hair easily though it is quite tough and thick. And when i say easily i mean easily!

But when I go to trim my hair like i have done for the past 25 years they have a hard time. Wetting my hair works but not really.

My hair style is long up top but the sides and back are trimmed tight due to my hair type which is thick and curly nb(wavy when long!) and frizzy. I use argan oil for the frizz which works perfectly but growing out the sides and back just creates a mess of unkempt hair no matter whst i do.

Any way i’ve tried adjusting the lever and the power screw with no luck. I have also removed the blades and cleaned them and oiled them. It would be nice to trim my hair with out it taking an hour.

Ive tried other trimmers as well with no luck.

The weird thing is that if i go to the barber and they use the same set im using it cuts through my hair easily and with out fault.

Can some one help me?

  How to use curling iron
Posted by: InfinitePanther - 03-14-2018 04:54 AM - No Replies

When I use a curling iron, it always comes out frizzy, and instead of becoming a curl/wave, it just sticks up. I want to go for that natural pompadour type look, so I only want to use the curling iron to bend the fringe part of my hair back with a wavy look. How do I do that? My hair is more medium length and my fringe area goes down to my eyelashes.
My hair is very straight so it’s hard to push back/comb back without excessive products. It’s also very thick, but that does not help it slick back. My hairstyle is long on top & short on sides. I usually style it in a natural pompadour look, so you can imagine the difficulty in trying to do a pompadour with a natural look that constantly falls down/drops to the side without a lot of hair products.
Do I have to wait until my fringe grows longer? Are there any tips on how to use the iron to suit what I’m looking for? Thanks.

  How to dye hair to get bright salt and pepper look?
Posted by: alpharalpha - 03-04-2018 09:02 AM - No Replies

Hello, my hair has started to get salt and pepper but the color is dull especially the gray. I notice celebrities have nice bright silvers and blended tones. Has anyone here done this? I have bleached it once about a year ago, used some blonde dye and some touch of gray which for a first try worked ok. Now I am going to bleach it again, use toner to remove the orange tones to get as close to white, and use a bright semi-permanent silver for the temples and try to use as little as possible of the touch of gray so as to maximize the bright tones while having enough dark to blend in with my roots. Any advice?

  Shortest Beard/Stubble Trimmer Recommendation
Posted by: jduque_99 - 01-28-2018 05:35 PM - No Replies

Hello everyone.

Let me start by saying that I have read many posts and reviews without having any success finding answers to my questions.

I currently acquired a Philips Norelco 5100 beard trimmer. I don't use any of the combs and use the metal blade directly on the skin. I like that this trimmer has rounded blade tips to prevent skin irritation. I have used it a few times already and it really does not catch the skin or causes any irritation, but I don't feel it cuts my stubble close enough for my taste.

I was wondering if any of you guys could recommend or shine in on which of the available beard/stubble trimmers available out there gives the shortest trim when using the blade directly on the skin without catching the skin or causing irritation?

Also, just wondering if anyone knows. How does the Philips Norelco 5100 Beard Trimmer compares in terms of shortness and skin irritation using the blade directly on the skin when compared to the "Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer ER-GB40-S" or the "Wahl - Lithium Ion All-In-One Trimmer" ?

Finally. How about the Philips Norelco One blade. Does it really get that much closer to the skin without causing irritation to justify getting it instead of any of the previous others and having to replace blades every so often?

Thanks in advance for any input provided.

  Straighten advice please :)
Posted by: Rikyrik976 - 08-31-2017 02:26 AM - No Replies

Hi, is it possible to straighten hair then wash/shampoo then style effectively?
Im so stuck, if I wash/shampoo then dry completely then straighten my hair it goes thick and clumpy and horrible...I need to apply product on my hair when towel dried from shampoo to damp but would love to have straight hair, my hairs light (in texture) and wavy, I use matt clay, matt styling wax, matt styling paste etc, I want a natural finish as my hair goes really blonde when dry.
Thanks for any advice, I really need it.
I use frizz shampoo, hair length is about 2 inches so far. I have short hair straighteners with temperature adjust that I keep low, they were only £20 toni and guy ones. When I try to straighten i use heat protection

  How to explain to barber
Posted by: bbqbrews - 08-08-2017 06:35 AM - Replies (4)

I am new to the group but not new to the quest of finding a decent haircut. It's been hard to know exactly what to tell the barber what I'm looking for. I have straight hair with a few cowlicks. Without fail after a cut my hair almost always is left either short with too much bulk and no texture or too long on top (over 1inch)and looks like a flat top. I'm looking to have a short, bed head type cut that I can grow into. I would like to have some texture so it looks messy and spiky but not a flat top. The best example I could find is springsteen's hairstyle. He pretty much always has the same style. I've found a few pics that show it shorter presumably right after a cut, little more grown out, and then longer. I'd like to be able to have a "high mileage" cut meaning i could go at least a month with out going back to barber. Trying to figure how to explain that to a barber? Is there a way to post pics on this forum?
