How to Touch Up Your Neckline

Untrimmed hair on the back of the neck – male or female – between haircuts can draw lots of looks – the type of looks no one wants. There’s no reason to put yourself in this position. All it takes is a Wahl trimmer or clipper and a spare minute. Here’s how to trim the back of your neck.

How to Trim Neck Hair Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Use your Wahl trimmer or clipper with taper levels in the closest position.

  • 2

    Using the trimmer or the clipper in the normal, upright position, run it in an upward direction on the back of the neck to eliminate the growth. Use a mirror or your touch to make sure no patches have been left behind.

    Once you've trimmed the neck hair, be sure to also touch up your sideburns and around the ears.
