How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Neckeard Shape
If you’re going to attempt a neckbeard, we suggest going for the LeBron look, with nice clean edges around the cheek line. Follow these steps to own the neckbeard and rock it in style.
1. Keep clean lines around your cheeks.
The most important thing to remember is to keep clean lines around your cheeks. If you struggle with symmetry, you can use a beard-shaping tool to help. Hold it against your cheek while you carefully pull the razor along the edges of the shaping tool to achieve a clean, symmetrical look. Use a good-quality shave gel to prevent redness and bumps. Shave daily to prevent stubble that creeps up onto the cheeks and could potentially diminish the look.
2. If you want to add a mustache, keep it trimmed.
You can ditch the mustache completely, but if you want to add one, keep it short and trimmed to match the hair around your neckline. Use your trimmer on a close setting to keep the mustache visible, yet subtle.
3. Keep your beard short.
We prefer a cleaner look with the neckbeard, keeping your beard hair trimmed short. Again, use your trimmer on a close setting and trim it up every few days.
4. Use a daily moisturizer.
Since you’ll be showing a bit of skin, be sure to keep it soft with a daily moisturizer that will prevent redness after shaving and ward off dry skin, especially during the winter months.
