Yes, it is possible and I will outline the best way to remove back hair yourself. The old dilemma of just keeping your shirt on or just not caring and just flaunt your back hair is quickly fading in the rearview mirror. We got options nowadays…and you know what? They work pretty darn good too.

Most Men Are Unaware There Is A Easy Solution

Most people are unaware of the advancement of methods for dealing with back hair. There are many options to choose from. Some work better than others, but most importantly we have quite a few options.

We men are self-sufficient. We would rather do for ourselves than squabble for help. At least for me, that is the only option. I don’t like the idea of having a stranger performing a form of torture on me by ripping my back hair out when I am half-naked. Not an option for this guy. Give me an option to allow myself to do it on my own and I will just naturally steer myself towards that method.

My Top 3 Back Shavers

I have tried and ranked these three back shavers highly. I believe most people would find either of these three shavers very proficient at ridding oneself of problematic back hair.

Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus

To read more about this amazing back shaver head over to my more in-depth review here, Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus Back Shaver Review.

This back shaver is my #1 Recommended Back Shaver. It scores the highest of all the other shavers, and I have reviewed just about everyone.

Why is that?

This is the best designed from bow to stern of any back shaver I have reviewed and on top of that one of the best performers as well. This thing just simply rocks!

Well, their DRYglide technology works great. This allows you to shave your back dry while not cutting yourself at all. It really cuts through the hair and provides a remarkable close and fast shave. The long handle is comfortable and able to reach anywhere on your back. You can shave your back wet too if you prefer, it works either way.

This thing will not cut your back, unlike other back razors out there, where you have to be very cautious of using it. This is the most user-friendly of the bladed razors out there.

Any of the Bakblade back shavers will not clog with hair, no matter how dense your back fur is.


ManGroomer Lithium Max Plus Back Shaver

Now, this is the one that surprised me. I expected lackluster results from the ManGroomer. I thought it was a bit gimmicky. Nothing could be further from the truth. The ManGroomer Lithium Max Plus performs amazingly well, so well it ranks currently, in my top 4 best back shavers.

This is the modern age shaver that works amazingly. Also, the long handle with a fully adjustable angle selector will reach any spot on your back.

This back shaver provides two different head attachments. The Back Shaver Head and the Body Groomer Head. These are easy and fast to switch out. One is designed to knock down the long hair, the other one is designed to shave your back smooth with a foil-type shaver.

This two-headed prong attack works great, coupled with this well-thought-out and engineered design and functions of this back shaver is a true winner.

Bro Shaver 2.2 Back Hair Shaver

This is the full-fledged grown-up back shaver. Why? Well, this is extremely sharp and prone to nicking yourself often when you first start using it. But…it super effective and super cheap for blade replacements, two very important selling points. It doesn’t have the safety features of the baKblade, and this is a little better at attaining a closer shave but with an increased risk of cutting yourself. This would probably improve over time as you become more and more familiar with using the Bro Shaver. There is a learning curve here, thus the grown-up titled. After a couple of shaves, you will not nick yourself, this is what I have found.

This currently ranks easily in my top 3 for back shaving in my opinion but this option for shaving your back should not be overlooked. It is a real serious contender.

Bro Shaver uses two double edge razors side by side to give you a cutting width of 3inches wide. With that kind of width, your back hair doesn’t stand a chance. I would highly recommend this to the frugally minded individual or the extremely hairy person. Replacement razors for this are extremely cheap and they are also extremely effective.

The handle needs a little refinement but this is not a deal-breaker. Also, the handle is the longest of any back shaver I have reviewed, coming in at 20 inches long. If you’re looking for a great close shave with a very affordable blade replacement, this is your shaver bro!

The Final Cut

If you’re anything like me, you want to be self-reliant, while feeling better about yourself and…I feel better about myself with a cleaned-up back with zero back hair. I have been really embracing anything that builds me up and a back shaver, however, may seem silly, it does build up my confidence.

The three shavers I mentioned above performed the best out of all the other methods I have tested and I have no problem recommending any of the three to anyone. These are the best way to remove back hair yourself in my mind.

  1. This is an informative post for men looking for hair removal from their back.  My husband struggles with this as well.  I like how you listed the pros and cons of shaving your back and give the top 3 types of back shavers.  I think its important for someone to be able to remove their own back hair.  I think I like the first choice you recommended, Bakblade 2.0 Elite plus.  I think I will show my husband this option.

    1. I often have wife’s on here on my website for their husbands or boyfriends looking for a good back hair shaver. Glad to help my fellow hairy-backed brothers out there. 

      Yes, the Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus is the bomb and your husband should love it. Come back and let me know what he thinks.

  2. I really like this topic a lot! Wow, so there are back shavers available for people to use. I had no clue that back shavers were an actual thing people could use, well, at least when I grow back hair, I can come to this little blog and make sure I get myself some deals and some pretty great razors!

    1. Glad you like it The White Halo! 

      Yes, many men have no idea of a fully functional back shaver is even an option for shavings one’s own back. A few years ago I had no idea myself but was quite relieved to find out about back shavers myself. I spent a lot of trial and error finding a good one for myself and decided to build a website reviewing back shaver. 

      Please do come back.

  3. These back shavers must work well. But I’m a bit concerned that the blades may dull fast. And dull blades are pretty useless. I hope this is not the case because I don’t have the money for expensive replacements. Are there simple hacks to avoid spending a lot on replacements? Thanks.

    1. I typically get between 5 and 6 shaves before I notice the blades start getting dull. You have to keep in mind your shaving a larger area (your back) and shaving more hair than a typical beard shaver. This is pretty decent.

      I highly recommend if you are worried about the cost of replacement blades to go with the Bro Shaver 2.2. This is a great back shaver and has the cheapest replacement method, as it uses cheap replaceable double side safety razors. These can be bought for cheap on Amazon, as compared to back shavers that use replaceable cartridges. You can buy packs of 5 up to 100, check out my article on buying Best Safety Razors For Shaving Your Back.
