Best Electric Shavers for Teenagers & Beginners

Written by Advice Team on March 6, 2019

Many young men and teens are first introduced to shaving through disposable cartridge razors that are used daily to provide a close shave. They’re convenient and have a lower price point when considering cost per month but over time, cartridge razors turn out much more costly, compared to buying an electric shaver that will last several years.

Best Electric Shavers for Teenagers & Beginners


When considering it's possible to buy replacement foils and rotary blades after a few years of use because an electric shaver isn’t performing as close a shave as it once did, it's somewhat a no-brainer to consider a purchase with longevity over a disposal cartridge razor that has become more costly over time.

If you’re still not quite convinced about moving from your razor, take a read of our razors vs. electric shavers comparison, otherwise, here are our top picks for first-time buyers and electric shavers for teenagers.

Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3010s Wet & Dry


The Braun Series 3 has a Triple Action Cutting System - a combination of twin foils and a floating middle trimmer with MicroComb Technology for the closest possible shave, even on 3-day stubble, for your comfort and efficiency. It’s an affordable electric shaver with outstanding results for the clean-shaven young man - 100% waterproof, with a lengthy runtime and LED Display. Its foil blades work to catch and feed more hair with every stroke to give you a faster shave, as well as following the contours of your face.

Good choice.

“Only had the shaver a few days but very happy with it. Better than my Philip's which gave up the ghost after only 6 months. Good service from Shavers.”

“This shaver is 1st Class. This is now my third purchase of this model. After 12 months, I buy new foil and blades, and after the second year, I buy a new shaver. This all works out much cheaper than blades, shaving foam, aftershave, etc. I can recommend this company for excellent service and amazing prices!”

“Bought this shaver to replace a Braun that I have had for many years which I thought was excellent but this shaver shows how much they have advanced. I have used wet and dry modes and the closeness of the shave is comparable with wet shaving with a Gillette Pro-Fusion cartridge razor. Battery life is excellent and cleaning is very easy. Thoroughly recommend this product.”
