Everything You Need to Know About Neckbeards

Growing a beard is a real journey; it all starts with a few wispy coarse hairs here and there and, eventually, with a bit of patience, it turns into something a lot more substantial.

Through the process of growing any long beard, you may find yourself wondering whether you’ve accidentally grown a neckbeard. Sadly, neckbeards have a less than stylish image, so you probably want to avoid growing one.

But don’t worry – we’ve put together everything you need to know about keeping on top of your neckbeard.

What is a Neckbeard?

A neckbeard is exactly what you’d imagine it to be – an extension of your existing beard that’s growing on your neck.

Believed to have first been popular around the time of the American Civil War, the neckbeard has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in the hipster beard era.

For many, a neckbeard is something to avoid, as it can quickly look unkempt. However, if you have a narrower face structure, this style may help to broaden the appearance of your chin and jawline, providing the illusion of a more balanced face shape.

How to Keep Your Neckbeard in Check

Like with all sections of your beard, you need to make an effort to keep your beard looking its best at all times.

Here are our top tips:

1. Keep Your Whole Beard Clean

Washing your beard helps to keep it clean from everyday dirt and debris, including a build-up of dead skin cells. Our King C. Gillette Beard and Face Wash is designed to help to keep your beard clean and fresh – including any hair growing below your beard neckline.

Our 2-in-1 beard shampoo and face wash contains argan oil and coconut oil, alongside other optimised conditioning ingredients, plus our signature King C. Gillette fragrance to keep your beard smelling divine.

2. Give Your Neckbeard a Trim

So, how do you trim a neckbeard? To keep your neckbeard looking tidy, use our versatile King C. Gillette Beard Trimmer that uses Braun technology to get rid of any longer, coarser hairs that are spoiling your overall look. With three interchangeable combs and 11 different length settings, our trimmer can help you to get your neckbeard down to a more manageable length.

3. Lather on Some Shaving Gel

Shaving gel needs to be an essential part of your grooming routine, even if you’re just doing a quick touch-up.

Our King C. Gillette Transparent Shave Gel will help to protect the skin on your neck from razor burn while you’re shaving your neckbeard. It features aloe vera and white tea extract and its transparent formula makes it easy to see exactly where you’re shaving, so you can keep your beard looking sharp.

4. Shave with a Specialist Neck Razor

The skin on your neck can be much more irregular than the skin on your cheeks, which means shaving cuts and razor bumps can be more likely to occur here, unless you’re using a specially designed razor.

Enter the King C. Gillette Neck Razor.

To get the best results from your King C. Gillette Neck Razor, make sure you’ve applied plenty of shaving gel, then begin shaving with the grain, using light, gentle strokes.

Our neck razor’s features include:

  • Lubrication before and after the razor blade to reduce friction and help manage shaving irritation.
  • Two low cutting force razor blades, which are designed to cut through hair with less tug and pull than standard blades, and are optimally spaced to reduce the likelihood of cutting hair below skin level, thus helping to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.
  • Razor cartridge features a central bridge guard, which helps to reduce pressure between the blade and the skin for a more comfortable shaving experience.
  • A single edging blade at the back of the razor to help you to achieve clean, sharp edges around your beard neckline

5. Apply Beard Balm

Our King C. Gillette Beard Balm can help you to add the finishing touches to your grooming routine. Use it to style and nourish any remaining hairs on your neck to keep your statement beard looking its best. Its formula features argan oil, cocoa butter and shea butter, plus hair conditioning technology.
