Shaving Your Neck With Electric Shavers

So here’s a quick recap of the video.

Once you have the right shaver, there are some basic techniques worth trying.

Firstly as a basic tip, I would suggest you shave more often. This allows you to shave shorter stubble rather than longer hair. For most people, shaving with electric shavers is much easier on 1 day’s growth, rather than 3 or 4 day’s growth.

The first main tip is to shave your problem area first. So in this case, shaving your neck while the foils/blades are still cool, may improve your results.

All the next tips really work together. You want to adjust the pressure, direction, and length of your shaving strokes.

You’ll want to add/reduce pressure, shave in all directions, and use short and long strokes. I’ve found this is the best way to tackle the neck area, and it’s especially useful for shaving those stray hairs which can seem impossible to get rid of.

What you need to realize is that with medium to thick hair, you’re not just going to shave everything off in one pass. Some of us will have to shave over an area quite a few times before it’s completely smooth.

To recap the video, you want to adjust your pressure, direction and length of your strokes until you find something that works for you.

To get the best results when shaving your neck, you really need to test all these different techniques until you find one which produces good results for you. Everyone’s shaving preferences are a little different.

Here’s a list of things to try:

– Shave your trouble area first
– Add or reduce pressure
– Shave in all directions
– Change the stroke length
– Tilt your head, pull your skin
– Try wet shaves, or pre shave lotions

In the demonstration I used the Panasonic Arc 5. Check out the full review here.
