Repairing a Cheek Line: All-in Method
- Using this method, just stop shaving again altogether.
- Let the entire beard grow outside the line that you wish to modify.
- Optionally trim back your existing beard growth. This is not required, but doing so means that the new growth will not have as far to go to “catch up”
- Give the new growth enough time to grow out so that you can start to see the proper location for the new cheek lines. Allow at least a week or two, possibly more. The more it grows, the more it starts to blend with your existing beard growth.
- When you’re ready to go for it, follow the directions here for defining your new cheek lines: Choosing a cheek line for your full beard
- After you’ve successfully defined your new cheek lines, you can periodically trim back your existing beard growth while letting the new growth continue. Soon, they will even out.
- Congratulations on your new-and-improved beard!
If you go through the above process and still did not manage to define the optimum neck or cheek lines for your beard, you can try it again or give the iterative method a try.
Repairing a Neck or Beard Cheek Line: Iterative Method

- Define a new cheek line above the existing cheek line.
- Refer to the directions here for guidance: Choosing a cheek line for your full beard
- Continue to maintain your newly-defined cheek lines, allowing the new growth to fill in.
- As the new growth fills in, evaluate the new shape of your beard. If you are satisfied, keep the new lines. If you are not satisfied, repeat this process, defining a new cheek line.
