How do bodybuilders and athletes build up their neck muscles, specifically their scalene muscles? Do steroids make giant scalenes?

I was reading about the problems that people can get when the scalene muscles in their necks squeeze their blood vessels or nerves against their first rib. I was wondering how people get hypertrophic scalene muscles - are there certain excercises that build them up? Are there certain movements like head turns that contract them? Is anabolic steroid use known to bulk up the neck or cause hypertrophy of the scalene muscles?
