A personal pet peeve of mine is to see people with a well-groomed face, but a neckline that looks like the back of a chimpanzee. You know what I’m talking about.
Barbers will typically create a new, logically-natural break between where the hair grows on the head and where it begins at the neck. On some of the most beastly men, that line might be blurred…a lot. The peeve’s source is from those who groom the head and face by regularly shaving, but who fail to groom their neck.
This is certainly no Cardinal Sin, but it definitely not the most well-rounded method for full maintenance and grooming.
Even if it has been a while since you have visited the barber, you can still take the time to lather up your neck with you shaving brush and chop down the high brush with a single pass (no multiple passes needed). It should be part of one’s regular shave routine. Unfortunately, some men fail in this regard.
Unfortunately, it is most often a failure of those who need it most–those men among us whose head-hair really never stops:
For those among us who do not maintain the neck brush, you can start today by buying a razor online and manscaping that stuff. And, if you know someone with this unfortunate genetic normality that could be tied to the apes, you can buy one for them as a gift. Everyone else will thank you.
