Sideburns Are Not Cool
I was a kid in the '70s. I was there when sideburns were hip. I have seen attempts, on people today, at sideburns as a fashionable patch of facial hair. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not against facial hair. I follow the 6 on/6 off concept where my beard is concerned. But sideburns were not cool in the '70s and they are even worse today.
A prime example of what I am talking about is a balding young fellow I saw recently had sideburns down to the bottom of his ears. If you are balding don't compensate by sprouting bushy growth where-ever else you are capable. Burns are bad. I have spoken. DMP

I'm with you! At least in the 70's they had real sideburns, not these little wisps. Real men do not grow wisps! Love the picture.
