How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Sideburns Shape
Growing out just your sideburns can be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are the steps to make it happen.
1. Grow Out The Sideburns
The first step, of course, is to begin growing out your sideburns. Depending on if you’re going for a cleaner look or a more unruly look will determine how long your sideburns should be. That means they can be anywhere from half an inch to more than four inches in length. Regardless, ensure that you grow them half an inch past their final length. This will give you room to work with and make it possible to trim them for an even look.
2. Shave Off Unwanted Hair
Next, you will need to shave off the hair that connects to your chin hair. The key to a good sideburn look is to let it be the star of the show. You can grow a goatee if you’d like. Just make sure that the goatee and sideburns do not touch. Pick up a grooming kit and use the razor and a good shave lube to remove the unwanted hair. Lather your face with the shave lube, shave off the hair around your jawline and neck, and then rinse.
3. Trim And Style The Sideburns
Finally, you will want to trim the sideburns and style them however you see fit. Use a beard trimmer or comb and scissors from the grooming kit to cut the facial hair uniformly. You can also use the included beard-shaping tool to finish shaving and cleaning up your sideburn lines. We also recommend investing in a good beard brush and beard butter to give your sideburns a smooth and soft feel.
