damn,
I have not shaved my sideburns in
27 years....completely that is.
I keep them neat. The only time they sort of got unruly was when there was this character on 91210 that sort of made sideburns popular again in the mid-90s. I grew mine down to my neck but that was it.I want proof that his originated right below the temple. GG
