Backhair can be such an unsightly thing to have and many men want to get rid of it, but they don't want to spend the money to get waxed. Also going to a waxer every few weeks sounds expensive and painful.
I created this guide from some of the products that I personally use and have reviewed over the years to help you find the best back shaver on the market.
In A Rush? Here Are Our Top Picks
1. Norelco Body Groom Series 3500
I personally believe this is one of the best body groomers and back shavers that you can buy. It's inexpensive, cordless and comes with an amazing attachment that allows you to easily access the areas all over your back that are hard to reach.
It has a specially formulated hypoallergenic foil that won't irritate your skin and the battery can charge in just under and hour. The multiple attachments make this a great option for shaving your back and basically any other part of your body.
Who should buy it?
Men who want an all around back grooming and body grooming solution
2. Mangroomer Professional
The best part of the Man groomer professional is that it's designed specifically for grooming back hair. It doesn't really do anything else well but get the hair on your back, lower back and I've found it helpful for hair on your butt as well.
The handle is adjustable and locks into many different positions that will allow you to reach the toughest areas. (Sounds like I'm talking about a vacuum cleaner attachment).
The telescoping handle makes it extremely easy to reach everywhere and the premium blades cut through hair like butter. It does struggle a bit with longer hair, but after a good go, you'll be fine with weekly maintenance.
3. Bak Blade 2.0 Elite Plus
I'm going to call this out right off the bat.
You should be careful when shaving your back with a ANY razor from multiple angles. I'm personally not a fan of bladed back shavers, but the Bak Blade 2.0 is the most effective tool you can use to remove thick back hair.
It comes with 3 removable blades that are housed behind an encasing that allows you to shave your back while wet or dry. I would never recommend that anyone dry shave large parts of their skin, but you certainly can with this tool.
It's 3 razors attached to a handle in an easily ergonomic way to shave your back. What else is there to say? It just works.
4. Bak Blade 1.0
Sometimes the original is just as good as the updated version.
If you like the idea of a bladed back shaver and you want to save a few bucks on a the initial version, then the bakBlack 1.0 is the tool for you. IT has all of the same ideas as the updated version without all of the bells and whistles that may not be necessary.
Do I need to use shaving cream to shave the hair on my back?
I think shaving in the shower with soap is always a great idea when you're going to be shaving a large area of your body and you don't want to dedicated the time to putting shaving cream on your back.
I wouldn't recommend dry shaving as it can easily cause friction and irritate the skin.
Can I Use These Back Shavers Alone?
Absolutely! They are designed so that you won't require any assistance to shave your back by yourself. It can be tedious and sometimes embarrassing to have your beaver pelt trimmed down at a waxing salon.
What about waxing or depilatory creams?
Your back is a difficult place to get to. I think shaving it with a special bladed back shaver is the way to go or using an electric shaver. Waxing and creams are just a more complicated way to go about what should be a simple solution.
