Cut Your Own Neck Hair?
In this post, Nekmate Review, I will put this through the paces and see how well it works. Nothing can look more unsightly than out-of-control neck hair on a man.
Well, I cut my own hair, and often, my neck game is spotty at best. I’ve seen products like this on Amazon, but I thought they probably didn’t work that well.
So, since I am always looking for relevant content for my site, I thought I would give it a try, and boy, was I surprised by how easy and professional it works. Read on to find out more about this excellent product for a do-it-yourself man.

What Is Nekmate?
Nekmate is a simple device called a neck hairline template used to keep your hairline looking great for that DIY out there. It consists of two 100% latex-free silicones that you can quickly assemble.
The Nekmate can be used with shears, razors, and or both to achieve a clean and even hairline.
What Is Included?
1 – Nekmate template
1 – Nekmate band
These are put together to form the Nekmate.
How Well Does It Work?
It works great!
I can’t more highly recommend this if you cut your own hair or want a quick trim in between barber visits.
In a couple of minutes, you will have a professional-looking neckline. The non-slip band stays in place while you try to get as close to the band as for an even cut.
I asked the wife after I used it, and she said it looked good, and if she says that, it does. I was sold. Great product!!!!
Pros & Cons
- 100% Latex-free silicone, great for safe skin contact.
- One size fits all.
- The tight fits are necessary for getting the best possible outcome from shaving, as you don’t want this thing moving around on you.
- It stays movement-free, so you don’t have to worry about re-adjusting it after you start.
- Great for throwing into a Dopp kit or toiletry bag when traveling to maintain looking sharp on extended trips.
- Adjustable for both high and low necklines.
- Quickly trim neck hair to look professional.
- It would have been nice to receive some instructions about the actual device, and I had to go to Nekmate.com to get the lowdown on how to use it properly, although it isn’t hard to figure out.
- It’s a bit tight around my nose, but I will suffer to look better.
Tips On Using Nekmate
These are just tips below. Head over to nekmate.com/blogs/tutorials for more detailed instructions.
I would first start off with shears and attack both horizontally and vertically. Make sure you have the shears tight against the silicone horizontally. Then, make sure you go fully up vertically.
Going over all regions more than twice to make sure you get all the hair.
Another key feature is to make sure you are going far enough down your neck to do a thorough job.
Then, take whatever razor you use for your face and apply the same methodical method as mentioned above. You are shaving both horizontally and vertically.
The more care you take, the more professional it will look. So take your time.
Remember where you had the strap across, either your nose or chin, for the next time you need a trimming.
Don’t try using most back shavers on your neck, as they are not designed for the neck or face. The low neck would be okay with a back shaver.
If you need a back shaver, I highly recommend the BakBlade 2.0 Elite Plus Back Shaver Review. This is the highest-ranked back shaver I have ranked to date.
Recently, I have also reviewed a neck hair guide I like better than it due to its comfort; check it out here: Quality Time Neck Hair Guide Supremium Review.
The Final Thoughts On The Nekmate Review
Easy to transport, easy to use, and works great! It’s such a simple device and well worth the money.
I highly recommend this: get it and don’t look back.
This is a must-have if you cut your hair.
