back shaver

You ever notice men in movies never have back hair? However, having a lot of body hair is genetic. You may not have realized it but there’s a mini war on back hair, leading to a boom in the best back shavers. So, before attempting the back shave with your own facial hair razor, you should check out a body shaver to help tame your grizzly hair.

A back shaver is a long-handled razor, allowing someone to shave their back hair. Back shaving tools come in various designs to get hard-to-reach spots on the back like curved, adjustable and foldable handles. Shavers also come in disposable razor blade and electric versions.

There are a variety of back shaver models, and each one has benefits, whether you’re looking for more maneuverability or a low-cost option. We’ve reviewed 6 of the latest models that produce the smoothest results.

Buyer’s Guide to Back Shavers

From electric, cordless back shavers to handheld wet/dry manual razors with long handles, there are vast differences in these body grooming tools. However, the main things to consider include type, length of handle, and price.

Here are some the features to look for when shopping for back hair removal tools.

1. Type of Back Shaver

There are two main types of back shavers: electric or manual. If an electric back shaver is what you’re looking for, you also want to consider battery-operated or corded versions. Some of the more expensive back shavers will offer 2-in-1 corded and cordless versions.

Electric shavers tend to have a power cord that can be difficult to use while shaving your back since you have to hold the shaver up over your shoulder. This is why it’s best to look for a cordless version.

Battery-operated or chargeable back shavers offer the most versatility and convenience. These don’t have cords so they’re easier to maneuver around your back. However, you should look at battery charging time and battery life before purchasing.

If you don’t want to fuss with a cord or charging, then manual is the other option. These are long-handle, cartridge razors with longer blades. These can go with you anywhere, but you’ll need to replace the blades often to get the closest shave.

2. Length of Handle

The main difference between a regular shaver and a back shaver is the handle. You ideally want to have a handle that’s longer than 15 inches. Most handles are over 20 inches in length.

There are also retractable and extendable handles that can help if you have a longer torso. However, you should make sure that these lock into place, as you don’t want it to slip while you’re shaving. For this reason, it should also have a textured grip on the handle.

3. Blades

Most back shavers include the blades that you’ll need to get started. Depending on the model, you’ll likely receive a cartridge razor for manual or a double-edge razor. These blades should be made from stainless steel for the closest, smoothest shave.

4. Warranty

We hope that your back shaver lasts forever, but in the event that it doesn’t, you should look at products that have a warranty to cover broken or malfunctioning shavers. Other brands have a money-back guarantee if it doesn’t work. These options are great if you’re purchasing online and want to ensure the product quality level is high.

5. Flexibility and Ease of Use

When shopping for a back shaver, check out the comments and reviews. While most of these products claim to have versatile heads, some cheaper models have stiffer heads that don’t move with your contours as you shave.

Ideally, your back shaver’s head pivots as you move, avoiding nicks and cuts as you move across your shoulder blades, mid-back, sides, and torso.

When using these on sensitive skin, it’s important to always use shaving cream to avoid skin irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs. These back hair razors typically work with hard to reach areas, but if a blade cartridge is old and the razor blades are dull, these shavers won’t help much for a smooth back, even if it has a fancy patented design.

We reviewed 7 of the top back shavers and rated them based on the results. We prioritized smooth, hairless results, followed by design, wet vs dry back shavers, battery life, and ease of use. Here’s a quick look at our picks, see full in-depth review below.
