I never really paid attention to pubic hair shavers until my wife gave me one as a Christmas present years ago. Since I began using my first private area grooming tool I cannot imagine my life without it! It is so much easier, safer, faster and more efficient than using that normal razor down there where everything is much more sensitive and gentle.
In the past few years, I have tested quite a few electric shavers and so has my wife. We have almost become experts in this area, and have created our own list of best pubic hair trimmers and shavers suitable for men and women for those of you who are new to this type of grooming tools and need assistance picking one for yourself or as a gift.
Here are our personal favorites in this category – first those for men and then the shavers for ladies as well.
Intimate styling: Best men’s pubic hair trimmers
Best pubic shaver for men – Philips Norelco Bodygroom 7100
This is one of the leaders in the group of the best groin area shavers on the market. The Norelco 7100 is not only a pube shaver but it is a personal trimmer as well, so if you prefer to leave some hair down there in your private area you can use the Bodygroom to give it a nice and even trim.
If you are worried to use an electrical device to groom your private parts – with this pubic hair shaver you needn’t worry any more. The self-sharpening blades are extremely gentle and have been designed for safe use on even the most sensitive skin.
And for those of you who are skeptical about purchasing a personal trimmer for the sole purpose of keeping your groin hair properly trimmed, the good news is that with this trimmer from Norelco you get a multi-functional private parts groomer which you can use to trim your chest, back, leg or underarm hair as well. It is fitted with a pivoting head which will follow the contours of your body ensuring that you get each and one of those hairs you want trimmed or removed without needing to go back and forth several times.
You can save time and use the Norelco 7100 under the shower too. You can use it for both wet or dry shaving. It is completely water resistant so if you prefer to use it in the bathroom, and leave less of a mess after the grooming – this hair trimming unit is perfect for you. Plus, you can easily wash off all those hairs from the pube trimmer once you are done. Of course you can use this trimmer from Philips for dry shaving or trimming too.
The cordless design allows for freedom of movement and will save you from the hassle of having to plug in the pube hair trimmer and be limited by a cord. The batteries are fully charged for just an hour after which you get about 50 minutes of powerful shaving and trimming.
It is easy to use, it glides smoothly through all areas of the body and you can choose one of the 5 adjustable trimming lengths it offers starting from 1/8 to 11/25 inches. Although the trimmer could have been designed to give a closer cut, it is still the best shaver for pubic hair for men who want to properly, safely and quickly deal with their manscaping.
Best electric razor for pubic areas Gillette Proglide Trimmer
If you are used to using a regular razor for taking care of your pubic hair, the Gillette Proglide Trimmer is the next logical step towards moving to an electric razor for pubic area. It is shaped like a regular razor and is very light, compact and comfortable to hold and handle during the grooming process. Overall it is a much more maneuverable groomer than most other pube shavers being offered at the moment.
This is budget-friendly yet outstanding pubic hair razor from Gillette comes with 3 combs, batteries and a Proglide cartridge. The blades are based on the famous Braun technology and are very precise, so you don’t need to worry about any unsightly patches left in the private area once you are done. They are also very gentle and safe to use, so you can feel confident and safe when you are grooming your pubic hair. When you use the naked blade you will get a very close cut, so in this case you need to proceed with some extra care. With the 3 different combs you can use the Proglide as a pubic hair trimmer too.
This is a simpler pubic hair razor and thus is not as versatile as other shavers for pubic hair which are available on the market, even though you have a choice of three lengths via the adjustable combs. Another minus is that you will need to purchase and replace those batteries and the blades periodically in order to use this pubic hair shaver. Yet, the shaver itself is very affordable. The batteries are 2 AA sized ones which should last for one to two months depending on the intensity of use.
The lubricating green strip on the Proglide razor blade is also an indicator informing you when the cartilage needs changing. Once the strip becomes white – it is time for a replacement.
You can use this one under the shower as well (have I mentioned it works well both for wet or dry shaving), which is what most men prefer when shaving or trimming their groin area.
This is the perfect razor for pubic area for men who want to stick to the feeling of using a regular razor for their manscaping needs. It is affordable and easy to use.
Best affordable pubic hair trimmer for men – Philips Norelco Bodygroom 1100
Another favorite pube shaver from the Philips Norelco series, the Bodygroom 1100 is an affordable and efficient pube trimmer. The special smart tech used for the design of the blades allows the personal trimmer to cut the hair in both directions, which is very useful when you are working on your groin area where you don’t usually have superb visual.
The problem with this device is that it does not function like a pube shaver as well as a trimmer unlike the other cutting devices on our list. It does come with an additional 1/8” comb for trimming longer hairs as well as the adjustable hair length preferences from 7/64 to 1/64 inches.
Otherwise it is a very gentle and safe groomer offered at a reasonable price. If you are not looking for a pube shaver but only for a personal trimmer – the Bodygroom 1100 is a perfect pick.
If a genital shaver and trimmer together sounds better to you – you should probably stick with the more expensive and higher quality Norelco 7100 pube trimmer and shaver.
This particular pubic hair shaver is very light, easy to hold and can be used both on wet and dry skin and hair, so you have the choice of using it in the shower or not.
The technology used for Norelco 1100 cutting blade is quite interesting. The technology used for the blades which allows them to move and cut the hair in both directions is probably the most attractive feature of this wonderful grooming tool. You can even use it as a ball hair trimmer without any issues – the results are zero hair, no hair patches and no nicks or cuts on the delicate skin! It is specifically designed for trimming of the groin area and has a special protector to ensure that the gentle skin remains unharmed and without irritation following the manscaping session.
This pube trimmer too runs of 2 AA sized batteries which you will need to replace periodically to enjoy the cordless action. Otherwise it is budget-friendly, very easy to clean and maintain and will provide your groin area with a nice and even trim.

- Tips how to trim your pubic hair in 10 easy steps
Whether you prefer to remove any sign of intimate hair or you simply want to trim it in order to stay hygienic and neat, there are some rules to follow when grooming your private areas in order to prevent skin bumps, ingrown hairs, irritation, cuts or nicks on these delicate parts.
Here are 10 easy steps to trim your private parts safely and properly:
- Always trim the pubes before proceeding with the shaving, especially if this is your first time, or if you haven’t shaved your private parts in a while. You can use scissors, but it is much safer and easier to use dedicated pube trimmers for the job. Choose the hair length you want and proceed with the hair removal A good pube trimmer should be easy to use and provide good and even end results.
- After the trimming, get into the bathtub or in the shower to soften the skin and hair and open the pores. This will make further grooming much easier and safer.
- Exfoliate the area with a gentle exfoliating scrub, cleanser, mitt or brush, but remember to be gentle. Make small circular motions in order to get rid of all the dead skin cells and loosen and remove any ingrown hairs. This procedure will allow you to get a closer shave.
- Use a good quality shaving cream, gel or foam to soften and lubricate the remaining pubic hair and let it sit for a few minutes before proceeding. This will allow for a smoother overall experience.
- Do not be tempted to use a regular hair shaver for grooming your private parts. Get one which is especially designed for pubic hair removal. They are safer, easier to hold and maneuver and are gentler to the delicate and sensitive skin of your private area. Also, stay away from old or dull razors, which are not only inefficient, but can also damage your skin or lead to bacterial infections as well. Keep the guard on the pube trimmer at all times to prevent cuts and other injuries while grooming yourself!
- Pull the skin in the groin are tight, because trimmers and shavers and trimmers work better on flat surfaces, glide the shaver gently without pressure. Use your free hand to pull it up or sideways to ensure that the shaver can pass seamlessly and safely through it.
- Choose your shaving direction. If you go against the grain you will achieve a much closer shave. Going with the grain can help prevent ingrown hairs and inflicting further irritation. You choose which direction to go, but the latter is more suitable option for the delicate private area.
- Remove any hairs from your lower stomach under the naval area as well. Use a shaver, pube trimmer or epilator to make your stomach look toned and defined and to create a cleaner and neater overall look.
- Rinse off the gel, foam or cream, along with the leftover hairs well. Pat the area with a soft and dry towel to dry it gently. Do not rub in order to avoid skin irritation!
- Moisturize and condition your skin. This will help close the pores to avoid ingrown hairs or infections.
