HOW TO GROOM YOUR SIDEBURNS

HOW TO CHOP YOUR CHOPS!

Most guys  have serious issues trimming their sideburns correctly. It is the difference between looking well-groomed and looking well…ridiculous . This is how to make them complement your face shape and cut.  Women help your guy out , I can’t be the only person noticing and bothered by this!!

SHORT- Stubbs that stop at the top of the ear..try these with a flattop or if you are 12.  Leave them their natural width but trim them frequently with an electric razor so they don’t get bushy. And if you have a big round face ( or have gone through puberty)  don’t go short or your face will only look rounder.

MEDIUM- Mid-length sideburns should be cropped right above the cartilage in the middle of your ear. I like to pair these burns with a basic short, tight back and sides cut.These don’t need as much attention as their pre pubescent counterpart. These look great with a little scruff and if your face is oval this is your burn. Anything longer and you might look like Mr. Ed.

LONG- If you have the look and the face to wear these fab chops (my fave) make sure they are done right. A great tip to use when shaping this burn is to mimic the cut of your jeans! Im a bootcut boy and flare slightly at the bottoms. Just don’t dip below the hollows of your cheeks. If you’re going retro then you can  let them grow past the bottom of your ear. Guys with square faces and a hairstyle with height on top ( pompadour, faux hawk) this mutton is a must.

GETTING EVEN- Most guys make the mistake of using their earlobes as a guide, but they’re not always at the same height! Instead, place your index fingers at the bottoms of your sideburns and imagine a line running between them across your face. Groom them every few days using a trimmer with a guard.
