1. Trim your hair first
First of all, cut your hair real short before shaving your head, otherwise, you might hurt yourself, ending up with knicks and cuts on your skin/ Tip: the thinner the hair the shorter we recommend cutting your hair before using the shaver. For instance, if you intend to use Skull Shaver, we recommend applying int on hair with a maximum length of 4mm. For hair longer than 4mm, we advise cutting them down with a clipper/trimmer (check out the Beast Clipper for Skull Shaver), and only then use our shavers, to avoid clogged blades, pulled hair and overall unpleasant shaving experience.
The next logical question to answer is: “How to shave your head with clippers?”. You can use hair clippers, trimmers and balding clippers to cut your hair. The main difference between them is that hair clippers are also for cutting long hair and have various attachments to adjust the length of the hair. While hair trimmers are suited for shorter hair and for areas like chin and neck. We recommend using our Beast Clippers for hair longer than 0.5-1 mm. It will allow you to trim your hair real short and prepare your skin for a completely smooth shave. Alternatively, the Beast Clipper is perfect for those who want to leave a little fuzz or stubble. Skull Shaver hair clippers have 8 cutting combs of 3mm, 6mm, 9mm and 12mm suitable for any type of hair, with which you can easily get to tough areas, for instance, to cut the hair on the back of your head or the sides of your head.

At the same time, you look fresh and neat after shaving and women like a fresh bald look. However, if your skin is too sensitive, or you are using mechanical razors or low-end shavers, which usually, cause skin irritation, your skin needs time to recover. That means you cannot shave every day. On the contrary, if your hair is growing rather fast, you might need to shave every day. Our Pitbull shavers are proven to be protective of your skin.
