I have to go up. If I go down, my neck looks like someone stomped out a fire on it with golf spikes.

Where is the "both" option?
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:42:19 PM EST
Both.

My hair grows all crazy. Part under there grows to the right, another to the left, another down, a little up....so I get up/down/right/left strokes going.

Same for the rest of my face...I fucking hate shaving.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:42:55 PM EST
both, first up then down
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:42:57 PM EST
Both. Down on the first few passes, Up on the finishing passes.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:44:19 PM EST
Up, then sideways, then down. Still isn't a very good shave when I'm done!
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:45:21 PM EST
Up

Down literally shreds my face.

Wait a minute..........do you guys who pull down have totally shaved heads?

I can see it if your heads are totally shaved but if you have a head of hair pulling up is the ONLY way!!

Going down on me is almost suicidal.

I always go against the grain, so up on the neck. I shave my head too.

Don't put that in your dating profile.

Sideways.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 9:50:05 PM EST
Up, down, left, right......doesn't matter to my shaving needs. I gain no benefit or issue. Then again if I am in a hurry I can and have shaved with nothing more than water.......I guess I am not that sensitive!

Mine's pretty goofy on the neck like that but manageable on the rest, I haven't shaved in almost a year though...

I generally don't shave much as I prefer a beard, but when I used to it was always up

I don't even know how someone could get a clean shave going downward only. It literally left a quarter inch of stubble that was impossible to shave unless you went up.

Now I just have an electric beard trimmer type thing that I use when I want my beard to look presentable for work functions and not all scraggily.......
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:02:55 PM EST
Down, then up for a quarter inch to my jawline (beard).
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:03:37 PM EST
I shave with the grain of my beard, not against it.


Do you shave upwards on your mustache or cheeks?
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:04:12 PM EST
Up.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:04:35 PM EST
Down cause if I go up I get razor burn, but that's probably cause my face is not used to shaving.

Have the same issue so I just usually rock the Don Johnson fuzzy look.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:12:31 PM EST
I shave against the grain. On my face, that is the only way to get a clean shave.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:15:12 PM EST
First up "With the grain"!

Then down "Against it"!

Extra cream if needed!

Remember shave before shower prevents Any bleeding, and soothes freshly shorn skin!
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:16:18 PM EST
get both
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:18:29 PM EST
Always go with the grain.

I shave down.

And this. Up then down is very important.

When I started shaving with a safety razor, I found a website that suggested taking a picture of my neck/face area, taping it to a mirror, and using a sharpie to draw arrows on the picture in the direction the hair grows as I felt around my face. I knew my hair grew all sorts of stupid, but I was surprised in how many twists and turns there were. After I did this, I had a visual understanding of the direction I needed to shave in each area and it really helped the learning curve of using a single straight blade as opposed to the Mach-3. With that in mind, and now having it memorized, my beard is very course, so I shave with the grain (in the direction of hair growth) over my neck and upper cheeks (I keep a short beard). I then rinse my face with warm water and re-lather and shave against.

With the grain (up, towards the chin), then against the grain.
Gave up on shaving cream/gel/soap a few years ago - now I use regular hair conditioner and it works great.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:25:26 PM EST
Why the fuck did I think this was only about the back of the neck!!??

Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:26:17 PM EST
Always against the grain, shaved that way since i started shaving.

Up and down a vein would kill you a heck of a lot faster than side to side.

To answer the OP: I do both up and down. Just depends on where exactly it is on my neck.

Splash of water on the face, razor everything down, wash razor.

I never understood the need for all that cream and gel to shave your face.

With the grain on the first pass, depending on which part of my neck we're talking about.

Oh, and DE FTW.

Electric...

up down left right diagonal

all of the above
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 12:50:30 AM EST
Both. The hair at the bottom of my neck grows up. The hair at the top of my neck grows down. It starts to grow sideways (out, toward the sides) in the middle, where the two halves meet. I also have a bit of a whorl right about my larynx. I should probably just get laser treatment, and call it a day.

What's this "shaving" that you speak of?
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 12:57:43 AM EST
Both, down first then up.
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 1:12:40 AM EST
none
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 1:19:00 AM EST
With the grain, so down..
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 1:36:50 AM EST


Go with the grain first to get the majority of it. Then go against the grain.

Using this method will also make your blades stay sharp longer.
