There is a male subculture that chose the more traditional neck beard, but this is usually not the type of beard that comes to mind. Instead, the modern version is a beard with more mislabeled spots and looks more prominent on the neck. With regard to beard growth, it is perfectly normal for beard growth to concentrate on the nape of the neck. To explain this further, let's take a closer look at how facial hair grows.
Facial hair grows in five different areas:
- The mustache - the hair above the upper lip.
- The soul patch, flavor savor, or jazz dot - the strip of hair directly underneath the bottom lip.
- The goatee - the hair on the front of the chin, above the jawline, and expanding to the cheeks.
- The side-burns or mutton-chops - the hair on the cheeks above the jawline.
- The neck - everything that grows below the jawline.
Why is it important? Facial hair grows differently in each of the five growth areas and rarely grows evenly and evenly. This is especially noticeable when the hair develops from mere designer stubble to the roots of the beard after the beard has grown for 2 to 6 weeks. It is natural that the beard is mottled and broken at this point.
The length of the ends of the hair behind the neck is often the longest, so it tends to grow a little faster than other beards. In the early stages of growth, the hair on the back of the neck is usually thicker and more noticeable than the hair on the cheeks. The hackle can also grow to the south of the Adam's apple, and the nape looks particularly clumsy. In modern context, this type of mottled hairy beard reaches under the Adam's apple and is often referred to as the neckbeard.
