Can you convert a 120v 50hz electric shaver to operate on 60hz?

Running it on 60hz will just make the motor spin faster. This may not be a problem, and if it is, it will probably only be one of personal preference.

Dual voltage means it will operate safely with either 110/120V or 220/240V and all you need to operate it overseas is an electric adapter plug.

You cannot use 2-120v outlets to power a 240v dryer. You can convert a 240v dryer outlet to power 2-120v outlets if they are supplied with a neutral. This requires a competent electrician. Do not do this yourself.

Lighting transformers are used to convert 120V to 12V.

In the US, both 120v and 240v will be needed for your home, as different appliances need different voltages. Your TV needs 120V, while your electric dryer and stove will need a 120V/240V supply. If you have an electric water heater, or central AC unit, they will need a 240V supply.
