Should you keep your sideburns?
Whether trimmed conservatively to mid-ear, or grown to the bottom of the ears or beyond, sideburns exist for a reason: they help balance facial features. Trimming the sideburns is an important part of any good haircut, but they might need a bit of cleaning up in between visits to your barber or stylist.
How long should you keep your sideburns?
As a general rule, they shouldn’t extend much further than the midpoint of your ear. Longer sideburns—that extend to the bottom of the ear—can help offset a long face or chin and they’ll also help a round face look less so. Shorter sideburns that hit mid-ear look good if you have a weak chin or an oval face.
What to do with sideburns when growing out hair?
You can use hair cutting shears, just be careful not to cut your ears.
- If you want a closer cut, use a comb to brush your sideburns down and use the tips of your shears to trim back any hairs that stick out too far. Then, comb your sideburns up and cut each side back to be closer to your cheek.
- Work slowly!
How do I keep my sideburns flat?
Make short strokes with the razor until the sideburns are straight. Once you’ve made single strokes down the sideburns, lather your sideburns again with shaving cream. Then, begin to make smaller strokes starting from the bottom of your sideburns. Take this time to even out the lines so that they are straight.
Where should sideburns stop?
Sideburns should end where they are fullest. Anywhere between the mid-ear or a little bit higher.
Should you shave your sideburns girl?
Put Down the Razor “If you’re a man yes, for women, no! Our skin is way more sensitive,” says Jodi Shays. Shaving can irritate the sensitive skin on your face, leading to bumps or ingrown hairs. Frank also recommends staying away from shaving your sideburns, as it can lead to annoying and regular stubble.
Are sideburns considered facial hair?
Facial hair is hair grown on the face, usually on the chin, cheeks, and upper lip region. Men may style their facial hair into beards, moustaches, goatees or sideburns; many others completely shave their facial hair and this is referred to as being “clean-shaven”.
Should your beard connect to sideburns?
If you have bald spots or areas where the beard doesn’t reach your sideburns, try giving it some more time to grow. If the beard doesn’t connect completely, the longer hair will do a better job masking those bare patches. Remember that it can take a long time to grow a full beard.
How long does it take hair to grow 12 inches?
According to the CDC, scalp hair grows an average of one-half inch per month. If your hair is two inches long and you’re aiming for shoulder length (about 12 inches) growth, that adds up to a little less than two years to reach your goal.
What is the awkward stage of hair growth?

Everyone’s awkward stage is a bit different depending on their styles, but inevitably, you will find that your hair looks shaggy, uneven, or simply messy at some point in the process.
