Stay Sharp, Stay the Best
You already know that Formula 1 teams change tyres regularly to win the race by a split second. Did you also know that replacing your shaving head regularly guarantees top shaving performance, as well as the best results?
Like the top equipment used by world class sportsmen, we only use the best materials available. Philips shaving heads are made of the highest quality steel because they are in regular contact with your skin. However, also the best materials wear down because of regular use. Even if an immediate drop in performance is not noticeable, your shaving head will gradually become less sharp and precise.
Replace Your Shaving Head Every 12 to 24 Months
That is why we recommend that you replace your shaving head every 12 to 24 months. The ideal replacement frequency depends on your shaving frequency and the thickness of your facial hair. So replace your shaving head in time and stay on top of your game! Stay sharp, stay the best!
Everyday Confidence with the Perfect Shave
These shaving heads feature a dual blade system. The first blade lifts the hair, whilst the second blade cuts for a comfortable close shave.
A Fast and Close Shave

The supplier sent me a single head at the price of three, but when the mistake was discovered every effort was made to correct the mistake. Full marks to Euroelectricals.
Replacement shaving head delivered within the week at a very compeditive price including free delivery.Philips HQ55/40 Replacement Shaving Head
banged these in after ordering, light & day difference! close cut again along with how much quicker it is!
The price seems a bit overpriced for what you get but given the price of wet shave blades & how often you'd have to change them, I can live with it. I would however, depending on how old/what model your shaver is, compare the price of new shavers complete with these cutters first as there does'nt seem to be much price difference with some.
Very easy to fit and it's now like a new razor.
