The feel of a shaved head is smooth and looks good for those with many types of skulls. Some people have skulls that look better with different hairstyles. However, you never know what your skull looks like until you've shaved it clean.
Things You Will Need
A pair of electric clippers, shaving cream or gel, a razor, and a mirror.
A set of electric clippers is inexpensive and can save a lot of money over time, especially if shaving your head is going to be a common occurrence. Set the guard to the lowest setting or even take the guard completely off. It is important that your hair is short enough because a razor does not work when the hair is too long. Cutting yourself without the guard can be dangerous if you are not paying attention. Cut your hair either outside or in an area where it is easy to clean up. Begin anywhere on your head. It all has to go anyway. Make sure that you don't miss any spot.
Head to the bathroom and rub shaving cream or gel on your head. Be generous. Keep some extra cream or gel in the hand that won't be shaving your head. This will come in handy when you have tried to cut an area and the gel or cream rubbed off onto the razor.
Use the razor like you would cut a beard. Try not to cut across the grain because though the shave is closer, it also causes more irritation.
If you do not have a mirror, use your opposite hand as a guide to the razor. Your hand should feel which spots have been missed. This is also helpful because your hand should have extra gel or cream on it, which rubs off on the head at the same time.
As with the clippers, make sure that you do not miss any spots. Use your opposite hand as a guide to check whether all of the hair has been cut. Your hand should feel very little hair on your head. You can always go over stubble spots again; however, remember that it could take an extra ten minutes to find and cut all the stubble spots, which are difficult for others to see anyway.
After finishing with the razor, wash your head and feel that smooth bald feeling.
Tips & Warnings
Throughout this whole process, you have to remain attentive because cutting yourself can be dangerous. The whole process should take just under 45 minutes for the first time. The scalp will be very white for the first time and may be very irritated. With each time, it becomes less irritated. Remember to shave every few days or else the hair will be too long for a razor and you will have to begin at step 1 again.
