Ask Aaron Q/A: Tips for shaving those awkward areas – neck, under chin

ask aaron image

Peter Williams, from the UK, asks:

“We are now into the 4th generation of electric or disposable razor shavers and as such we have never been taught to shave properly with a double blade, as a right of passage with our father as tutor, hence I at least, find it difficult to shave those awkward areas, neck, under chin etc. Any information web sites seem to be sponsored by the large corporations which use the information in order to market their own products. Perhaps you could produce a comprehensive instruction video before all of us recent converts to DE shaving bleed to death.”


“Mr. Williams,
Thank you for the suggestion! I have been entertaining the idea of doing a video, and this topic would be a great one to begin with! in the meantime while you are waiting for the video I will suggest a couple of things. Pay careful attention to the blade angle in the areas. It’s easy to change the angle when shaving problem areas without realizing it. Also stretch the skin to make the surface area is as flat as possible. Pull the skin of your neck back and turn you head to shift the skin away from the Adam’s Apple area and to a flatter space. Hope this helps!

Smooth Shaving! Aaron”
