The cleanest, closest shave can almost always be attributed to a brand new razor – one with an unmarred myriad of four to five blades. Close your eyes and think about the feeling of that perfect shave. Now, imagine that feeling every morning after shaving. The Braun 790 with its intelligent sonic technology is an electric head shaver that breaks the mold, giving you the ideal shave on a daily basis. It has a foil surface that has a middle trimmer and three special cutting elements.

The middle trimmer uses 10,000 micro vibrations to help capture flat-lying hairs that are usually the ones that cause problems later as ingrown hairs. The foil surface has holes across it, each varying in size. The variety of the holes makes it easier for the hair shaver to get hairs that may be poking in any direction. With the middle trimmer and foil alone, you shouldn’t have problems with ingrown hairs. The triple action cutting system allows you to shave long or short hair.

You can use one of three different settings on these electric hair clippers, depending on your skin type. The extra sensitive setting should be used if you get bumps or irritated skin when you shave your face or legs. Most likely if your everyday skin is sensitive, your head’s skin will be sensitive, too. Once you’ve personalized the bald head shaver, you can save the setting into one of three personalization modes.

Perhaps the coolest feature on the Braun 790 is its clean and renew system, which means the electric head shaver diligently takes care of itself. With the touch of a button, the Braun 790 will automatically clean and dry itself. If you do need to wash it, the shaver is waterproof and can be cleaned under running water.

The Braun 790 is cordless, so you’ll have to charge it for 50 minutes for a full charge or five minutes for a quick charge. And seeing how most shave jobs only last three to four minutes, you’ll have a bunch of extra time in your morning.

The Braun 790 is one of the best electric hair shavers, excelling at capturing those errant hairs that can become ingrown and cause problems. With specific settings for different skin types and a self-cleaning functionality, you'll experience a comfortable shave every time with this electric razor.
