Fellas. What is the easiest way to shave your head with a razor? Well Matt has been kind enough to answer that question for us by sharing his method. I can vouch for his style of shaving, because his shaves are always clean and smooth. That’s why it was a priority for us to get him to share his secrets.
Hey guys. Here is a method demonstrated by Joseph Mitchell on shaving your head. In the video, he gets down to brass tacks and is all business, unlike this tutorial. I appreciate the video that Joseph made because he shows how safe and easy shaving can be, while also filling the viewers in on his own personal experience.
Hey, come on in! I’m pleased that you have visited our site here at Master The Razor. Before we get started, let me address the obvious point. While the original intent of this site was to provide knowledge and advice for Brothers looking to shave their heads (with a razor), it quickly became apparent that all sorts of men (and women) also shave. Or at least would like to learn how. Therefore we added resources to help our straight-haired friends out with knowledge and advice on how to shave properly.
Let’s cut to the chase; you just need a point in the right direction on how to shave your head. Okay fine.
Here ya go:
- Use a clean, sharp razor
- Shave after showering (or washing your head with soap & hot water)
- Apply your aftershave
- Shave with the grain (that typically means downward)
- If you miss any spots, wet the missed area with water before reshaving in a downward or sideways motion
- By careful of multiple strokes over the same area, as this can lead to irritation and razor bumps
- Once finished, wash your head with cold water (or a cold water drenched washcloth)
- OPTIONAL: Apply your preferred aftershave to finish up
And you will have yourself a clean shave! No irritation, no burning, no bumps.

These Brothas are supporters of Bump Patrol, the aftershave made specifically for black men. Full disclosure, I’ve never used any of their products (or any aftershave for that matter). But if you want to be absolutely sure to avoid razor bumps, then give it a try. Take a look at some of their products below.
I can honestly tell you that the first time shaving my head with a razor was daunting. It’s not that I had a problem with the shave; truth is, everything went really well. My issues were with my nerves! I was a little on edge because I was so nervous. But that’s normal. As time moved and I began to build some experience shaving, I relaxed. Now that shaving my head has become more routine, let me share my process with you.

This website wouldn’t be credible at all if we didn’t address this matter. And for most of us, whenever the subject of shaving comes up, the obvious issue is razor bumps. Well, what if I said to you that the problem isn’t with the bumps, but the education? Then would you be willing to listen? (and props to Craig the barber, that’s his line)
