Shaving Heads in the Early Middle Ages

I know that people have shaved their heads since at least Ancient Egyptian times. However, I can't for the life of me find out HOW they shaved their heads.

Would they have used scissors to close crop the hair and then a straight edge razor to shave what's left? A straight razor on a round head seems very... dangerous.

In Eastern Europe in the Early Middle Ages, how would you shave the head of a 5-6 year old child whose hair had never been cared for and is long and heavily matted and infested with lice?

Thanks!

Got my answer - and fast! Thanks all ^_^
