Sideburns are on the side of your face. They are basically hair that grows out over time and it is just above your ears. A lot of famous people used to have sideburns as they were a lot ‘trendier’ back in the day. Stars who had side burns include Elvis himself. It is very rare for a female to have side burns and today they are considered to be ‘old school’ or not as good however, the were once very popular. Another example is the man from Happy Days. He had very obvious side burns and had them for fashionable reasons. They make a persons face look very different despite only being on the sides of their face and they are often extremely memorable.

A man walked into the coffee shop. He comes in every morning. I’m here. Trying to write my book. But I can’t concentrate because that man’s sideburns are so… invading. He walks in and they’re all I can think about. They’re black, and bushy, like wiry worms wriggling their way free from the recesses of his brain.

she glared at him for a moment.
“haha! i’m kidding! you’re alright.” she smiled warmly, and he couldn’t breathe.
a little voice rang in his head, his brother’s.
“i told you sideburns were cool.”

Sideburns. Hm, for once something completely unrelated to my feelings right now. That in itself is rather fitting. I think I’m in major denial about the happenings of the past few weeks, but I think while I’m still in school that’s a good thing. Back to the topic, this makes me think of Flight of the Concords. I’m not crying. That’s denial too, right? It’s funny how connections work.

My friend Carl used to have sideburns. Well, they kind of looked like sideburns. He also used to have “Jesus” hair. We’d all joke around that one day he’d put on a white robe and walk into a Christian bookstore for a book signing. Except now he shaved the sideburns and the hair. So I guess we’ll have to find some other form of entertainment. :P

sideburns are a fashion of considerable masculinity. British police officers, wolverine, and the one irish cop that is a semi-large pop culture reference. Not everybody is a huge fan of this facial ornament. Some may find them scratchy and rediculous.

I don’t know how I feel about sideburns. They remind me of westerns. the first picture that comes to mind is of a ginger man with glasses and large, bushy sideburns. i don’t know why. they seem kind of gross, why would anyone like all of that hair on his face? or her face, that’s an odd thought.

Elvis Presley was a legend among songwriters and performers of his time. Sources now claim his sideburns are what granted him this success.
By Greg Miller on 05.29.2011
I hate my sideburns. I’m a girl. I should not have sideburns. This is bull shit. I don’t understand why God decided to give me sideburns. Like, hmm…this girl doesn’t have enough to worry about with the opposite sex being attracted to her. Let’s give her sideburns! Argh!
Anywho, I think I should get them waxed off. They’re quite unsightly. I mean, they’re blonde, but still…they’re there. And I can see them. Stupid sideburns.
By Katie on 05.29.2011
i think sideburns are kind of gross. sometimes they are itchy when you want to kiss the man with the sideburns. and then sometimes there are those bearded women with sideburns and its just yucky. i dont like them. someone should make them illegal. i mean dont get me wrong. they are totally hot on certain people. but thats rare. super rare. its just not right otherwise. so thats it.

hairy messy rivers flowing down down down to an untrimmed wilderness that is the bush the beard …ew to you friend of the forest and foe of the RAZOR
By kate on 05.29.2011
I mean, sideburns. Where do you start? Badass? Awful? Star-shaped? Not sure on that one. Sideburns can be amazing and hot but they are normally just offensive and gross because guys don’t know how to use them wisely. Get educated, guys.

70′s , wish i was born during those times.. i secretly like men with sideburns……
By jovi5jovs URL on 05.29.2011
Sideburns … that’s an odd word … I had sideburns when I was younger .. looked terrible … mutton chops were even worse … make you look like a cave man with a bad comb under … the world could do without sideburns … LOL.
By Doug Swanson URL on 05.29.2011
Sideburns. They make me think of Elvis, and also John Lennon. But they’re attractive as hell if you keep up with them.
Also, I have one more word on the matter.
By Hollie URL on 05.29.2011
I couldn’t stop staring at the trails of hair traveling south down each side of his face. I felt like I had just entered an Elvis convention. Welcome to Graceland.
By Mackenzie on 05.29.2011
sideburns amuse me. they pretty much always look awful, but i also figure anyone goofy enough to try them out probably has a good sense of humor. i would hope that someone with sideburns is the kind of person that wouldn’t take themselves too seriously. but really, I wouldn’t recommend them for anyone.
By laine URL on 05.29.2011
the man’s sideburns highlighted the scar that ran down his face, the shadows under his eyes gave him a fearsome look and the glare in his eyes dared anybody to cross him.
By Isabel on 05.29.2011
Again? This is the second time I am assigned this word. As if admitting I had never been able to grow a decent set of sideburns to connect my beard in that douche-bag kind of way wasn’t humiliating enough.
By Ruben Wan Kenobi on 05.29.2011
I do love a man with a nice set of sideburns. Proper ones- well groomed, filled in, with sharp edges that show attention to detail and skill with a razor. Not that skill with a razor is much of an indicator of character, but it’s at lest something to set a young suitor apart from the rest of the rabble.
Unfortunately, my boyfriend has none of these things.

Once up a day,I was alone in my room it was a hard day and felt difficult to pass on it. When night comes my loneliness become more and more.
By Shankar on 05.29.2011
I looked across the room and saw a man wearing sunglasses and a beige straw hat. He had sideburns going down the side of his face as if they were going for miles and miles.
By Kimberly URL on 05.29.2011
They are sometimes ok but for the mpst [art sooo ugly! and everyone that has them refuses to cut them off when really they would look so much better without them. it makes people assume things about that person that has the sideburns and make an imidiate judment .Like for example that that person is a hick. Uggghhhh I am so not a fan of em.
By ellen on 05.29.2011
Sideburns are majestic and the best kind of facial hair there is. Enough said. I pet some once that were very comfortable. They are better the longer they are. Yesm indeed so.
By Katie Forbes on 05.29.2011
I hate these things they make people look greasy – however, if you play a guitar you might make them work for some mad sex appeal. Reminds me of that dude in Billy Talent who has the Will Smith Haircut with massive side burns. I can’t believe they used to be the “thing” in the 80s. Nuts.
By Ray on 05.29.2011
She moaned as he thrust inside her, her cheek rubbing against his side burns as their torsos met and love flowed through their genitals. John was going so fast, so hard, so… amazing. She’d never made love like this in her life.
By Peta URL on 05.29.2011
old men. abraham Lincoln had them. he was shot by john wilks booth at a theater. i dont like men with side burns its ulgy. but to each thier own.
By cynthia esparza on 05.29.2011
sideburns are silly to me. They are never subtle and willing to take a backseat. They’ve always got to be over the top and reminiscent of the 70′s and heavy cocaine! I’m just not expectant of them these days, so when I come in contact with them, I’m not sure how to react other than throwing up in my mouth! BARF!
By Mical Roy URL on 05.29.2011
I don’t really know what to say for this word, because all I really think about it Elvis. I don’t know why but his are very funny, and since I live in Las Vegas I always see him I guess. I don’t have anything else to say because this word is stupid and I don’t want to write about it anymore so I hope the timer goes off soon or I’ll cry.
By max URL on 05.29.2011
“Sideburns are ugly.” This is my first thought as the man with the two parallel streaks of hair aligning his face strode purposefully into the office. My second was that, aside from the sideburns, the man was unusually attractive. Quite peculiar.
By Shauna on 05.29.2011
His menacing sideburns moved to the rhythm of his twisted words. No one sensed the lack of sincerity in his voice, but his eyes told a different story. We looked around the room for signs of trouble, but found none. The door remained open, the candle remained lit, the house keys still in place. Still, we knew something would happen soon.
By Clara on 05.29.2011
A lot of people have crazy sideburns. I remember once, when my quartet was playing at this church, and our coach’s husband was going to tune for us. He had little triangle sideburns on each side of his face. “Triangular sideburns of the month?” my best friend said. I laughed.
By Maya on 05.29.2011
Okay I get it, this is it. I guess it’s my turn! Maybe it’s time to put this pussy on your sideburns, he say I’m bad!
By nicckii URL on 05.29.2011
Cowboys with sideburns. Take their guns at their holster. They point, stare, glare, and face off in a dual. Who will survive. One, two, three…. DRAW!!!
By Samantha Meno on 05.29.2011
Fashopn trend in the 70′s and during the Civil War. Some even grew onto mustaches. Some were very bushy and unkempt. Some were neatly trimmed.
By Stacey MacKenzie on 05.29.2011
His sideburns were long and unruly and probably needed a good, nice trim or maybe they just needed to be shaved because they were really getting out of hand and everyone that looked at him was disgusted, but I guess that it didn`t really affect me that much, because I loved him anyway, despite these ridiculous sideburns.
By Chelsie on 05.29.2011
are really cool on some people. ONly if they are full. hair. i dont have very good ones. but i have a good mmustach. they always work with sun glasses and it shapes the jaw really well.
By Nicholas on 05.29.2011
Oooooooh. Yuck. I hate them. Furry hair on the side of someone’s face just makes me want to gag. They aren’t cute. They aren’t handsome. They are just gross. I really don’t even want to have to think about them.
By rachelzana URL on 05.29.2011
I don t like sideburns because they make me uncomfortable and I dont know why i am doing this but it’s interesting! What the heeeellll this is so weird! Ahahahaha ok this is making me uncomfortable I wonder why I am doing this! Ahahaha This is funny. Ok I really dont know what else to say about writing but
