Hello mmichele,
I am assuming that you are a woman and the hair on your neck covers a large area rather than being a few stray, coarse black hairs.

Simple treatment options are electrolysis or waxing. Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal treatment.

However, there may be an underlying medical condition that is responsible for the abnormal growth of hair on your neck. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition condition characterized by the accumulation of numerous cysts (fluid-filled sacs) on the ovaries associated with high male hormone levels, chronic anovulation (absent ovulation), and other metabolic disturbances. Classic symptoms include excess facial and body hair, acne, obesity, irregular menstrual cycles, and infertility.

If you are experiencing any of these other symptoms, consult your physician.
