Sideburns, hmm. They are pretty silly if I do say so myself, because they are like extra hair. have you ever heard of girl sideburns? Oh welll I didn’t until a few weeks ago, when i noticed a girl in school had them. They are these creepy wispy things that look like albus dumbledores beard.

Things that ‘make’ a beard.
They grow on the side of a man’s face, near the front of his ears.
Most sideburns are awkward.
Others look pretty chill.
Some sideburns are annoying to kiss, because they are all prickly.
Elvis had sideburns…I think…

When does one’s side burn? Perhaps when one lies on ones side, face to the sky, or whatever is above, and allows ones other side, for most have two, to face hell. Unafraid that the ending result maybe be sideburns :3

He looked up at her, his sideburns like dark bruises grazing his face. She shied away from his glance, frightened by the dangerous, violent glimmer in his eye. He grinned dangerously, sideburns wrinkling as the corners of his mouth rose, though the smile did not touch his eyes.

sideburns are not sexy. not in the least. hipsters take note; not okay.

Its 1971. The crowd screams. Its hot this time of year. The band rocks onstage. The main memeber faces backwards. And then, with a riff of the guitar, he spins, and the audiance screams, and his sideburns flair, and I know the night is only getting started.

Grazing the side of your face
Simultaneously with immaturity
But that air of childishness in your face
Is comparative with that in your heart
And makes me love you
For your sophistication
And even your immaturity

His sideburns brush with that simple prickle against the smooth side of her cheek. He could feel her chest tighten as she inhaled hard and pressed closer to him. Her lips just barely parted and a dim smile tugging at the corners of her mouth.

Old-fashion. Out-dated. Ex boyfriend had weird sideburns come to think of it…you know the ones that start where they should and end up pointing to the side of your lip…lol

suddenly, there was bogdan-though only ten-he was complete with elvis hair and sideburns and buddy holly glasses

I was hoping for a more inspirational word… but sideburns are cool, too.
By Maddy URL on 05.29.2011
His smooth tan skin was now lined and creased with firm wrinkles, his stomach a little soft and saggy around the middle, but at least he still had his sideburns.

Kevin Jonas had a mean pair. Like a moustache for a cheek. You would think they would be scruffy and itchy, maybe that’s why you don’t see many. As for Kevin Jonas, I think they added to his fame. Nick the talented brother, Joe the good looking one, and kevin, the one with the hairy face.

By Natalia on 05.29.2011
many will say they’re reserved for the seventies. but there’s a guy in my grade who can work them off. alas, one of my guy friends has them and he just looks like an elf. the word makes me think of that 70′s show, specifically of Hyde. i think my dad had sideburns.
By anna on 05.29.2011
Elvis presley had sideburns. I don’t think they’re that attractive, I mean, they probably used to be in my parent’s days but now they aren’t. I know some girls who have sideburns and they have to wax them, which is kinda gross. I’d say if they aren’t that visible then why make a big deal? Anyway, side

joseph vanderhorst who looks like wolverine who has beautiful blue eyes and looks at me but doesn’t who’s a pot head and a slacker and doesn’t take notes in math or science class and has beautiful blue eyes.
By charlie on 05.29.2011
They are funny and look weird. I think guys shouldn’t keep them. They’re tacky. The only man that can really pull them off is Elvis. If you’re not Elvis shave the damn things off. Cmon now. They’re like cheek mullets.

Anchorman, most interesting man in the world, marlboro man, that guy with the sideburns and corduroy beret-ish hat. That girl with sideburns, carpet burns.
By Lakewaygirl URL on 05.29.2011
Fashion statement for the big eared, thin faced man of the earth, sideburns tell a story of their own, like, what you’ve pulled out of your ear recently. Sixty seconds must be pretty long. I’m gonna cut it short, like anyone with sideburns should do.

Elvis. Old men. War veterans. Hulk Hogan.
By Allison on 05.29.2011
I always wanted mutton chop sideburns, but I am unable to grow thick enough facial hair which really sucks because I’m also lazy and hate shaving. Some people can grow big, thick sideburns and don’t. Why is life so unfair?
By Mike Hilbig URL on 05.29.2011
SIdeburns can look good on the right guy. They have to have the right bone structure though, or otherwise, they’re just going to look awful. Some guys can pull off the “Civil War Soldier” look, and others can’t. It’s really no big deal, just means that the guys who can’t pull it off have to find the look that then can pull off.
By Brittney URL on 05.29.2011
should i shave them?
there they are, bushy as ever.
sides of my face,
burning my face.
what a silly name
it word was derived from some man in history i vaguely remember
By victoria on 05.29.2011
He was perfect. Gorgeous, educated and successful. There was just the one thing i couldn’t get past. It was the sideburns. Nostalgic of a 1970′s porn star. I wondered was this a deal breaker or could i look past my own warped sense of vanity for him?
By Kirsty URL on 05.29.2011
Sideburns might be considered sexy when you are in an alternate universe. They are scratchy and tacky. If you have sideburns i suggest you shave them off. THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTIVE!
By RepoMan on 05.29.2011
He hadn’t shaved in a while, but his sideburns hadn’t exactly thrilled him. They were patchy and uneven, and he took less pride in them than even his own physical appearance, which, when you’re a bum on the street living in a cardboard box (And a damp cardboard box, at that) is saying something.
By Noah on 05.29.2011
my dad used to have those. just like woody from toy story. Also that guy I played opposite in that shakespeare play. I’m sure I’d have them if I were a man. That made me ponder gender theory. My girlfriend gets these thoughts in my head. I really don’t want to think about my dad.
By Katie on 05.29.2011
wolverine, ugly and scratchy. i used to know a girl that had sideburns. i totally made an ass outta myself when i pointed them out. sometimes i really don’t have any tact. hmm
okay i think i am outta things to say about this.
By Caree on 05.29.2011
Something stupid. Something unnecessary, a reminder of various people. Not just magazine people, but people I knew…sitting down in summer, and talking about things that mattered, things that didn’t.
By Eleanor URL on 05.29.2011
I first think “Elvis Presley” but even he couldn’t pull them off. Sideburns are just tacky and gross. It’s like a mullet on your face and should just be shaved off. The next time I see a sideburn I want to just say ” have you ever seen a razor? “
By Melissa Marie URL on 05.29.2011
I have an old picture of my father, standing on top of a rock, looking whimsically into the distance. Mum and Dad used to do a lot of photography, so this is a really lovely picture of him. Mind you, by then he had more hair growing out of his mutton chop sideburns than he did on his head.
By Dayle Morrison URL on 05.29.2011
He may have been older, maybe 37, 38, but I thought that the sideburns added both age and youth. They may have held experience, but, simultaneously, they made him look as though he were a young man who wanted to be older. A farce.
Dang it man, shave those burns. What is wrong with you, you look like a 70s porn star. Or like you are dripping with herpies.
By Enna URL on 05.29.2011
I saw him sitting there at the bar stool. I knew he was watching me. He had haunted me for so many years. The smell of his ciggerettes, his aweful sideburns, rotten smile. And there, as he watched me drink my beer, I saw in him my mother. He had killed my mother once. Killed her with his venhemous love. The irony tickled at the back of the throat as he came to hit on me. He had forgotten. It was fine. I was easily forggettable I suppose. …

Men have sideburns. Well, actually, I think that everybody has sideburns. Men just show there’s off more. I think sideburns are sexy. lol Just kidding. :) But they are just THERE. I don’t really pay attention to them. Do you? Cause I don’t. My little cousin sitting next to me has sideburns. But I probably wouldn’t have noticed them if this topic didn’t come up. :)
By Amy Schools URL on 05.29.2011
so there was this guy at this coffee shop i went to, and he had these hideous sideburns. not like sexy ones like elvis had, but like… bushy, greasy ones. i kinda wanted to say hey, you , with the sideburns… shave your shit.
By zac spears on 05.29.2011
are good and bad. mostly bad because men sometime don’t look that great in them. and then sometimes they try to look like Elvis or maybe not. whatever, its not for everyone. its such a fine line between good and bad. some can pull it off, others should try but then people would look a bit odd without them. reverse sideburns. go go go.

The sun – his side burns his sideburns.
