Sideburns are a very important part of a haircut. Some guys may not put enough thought into this, but the length, thickness, and shape all help develop an image that defines an individual. We all know that unfortunately with Asian hair, most guys sideburns don’t really grow through much, but for those lucky ones who’s burns do grow then alot of fun and expression can be had.I would like to go through afew basic choices in shapes and give you my thoughts and opinions on them.
Lets start with NO sideburns: This image (below) is usually sported by the military. Hair is shaven so close that there is no stop or start to the hairline. On the right person, this look can be converted from stiff and formal to a trendy hip look, i.e. Beckham
But be warned, on the wrong person, this could happen:
Then there’s what I call the Forest Gump, where the hairline is taken high on the sides, usually the guideline to where a sideburn should start is by following the corner of the eye, it should not go higher unless you want the Gump look, not too hot I might add:
Basic Men’s Length: This is what I call the business mans length, safe and normal with just the right thickness.
From there we have the slightly longer lengths, which I think make a normal haircut look slightly trendier:
Onto slightly different funkier sides, I chose to keep this quite basic as I could’ve very easily found some CRAZY looks but didn’t want to go there, so from ultra thin and long to ultra thick like Elvis’s (very renowned for his sideburns):
And finally, for those of you who’s sideburns may grow and grow, here’s some fancy dancy looks of Ludacris:
