To shave the sideburns or not to shave the sideburns?

If someboy laughs at me, does that make me funny or just plain stupid?

Technically, Cody, you don't shave sideburns.

Sideburns are trimmed. Faces are shaved.

-scratches my head-

But I shave the sideburns off of my face by shaving my face where my sideburns are...

then those aren't sideburns, they're the sides of a beard.

weird huh?  but I guess it all really matters where it's connected, at the chin, or at the hair... ??

Me?  whenever I shave, I brush my hair behind my ears and shave all the way up to where my sideburns WOULD be... so I disagree with Ron.

If YOU like them then don't shave them off. It's only a dilemna when you are forced by others' opinions to change something you don't want changed. *s

How bout a compromise...if you dont feel comfortable or are unsure how you will look without them ... then why not just try reshaping them ... trim/shave them so that they are thinner, you can leave them longer or take a little off the length. On a rounder shaped face a thinner longer sideburn will have a slimming effect.
That way you can get used to the change gradually if so needed.
My dad had "greaser" 50's sideburns for years..they became his trademark..
Be yourself.

Why don't you just go all out and let it alone, and maybe get a goatee while you're at it [get hard slap at the back of my head] ..I mean trim it! Shave it!! [gets nod of approval from a VERY blonde friend and gets another smack for the comment]

To trim, or not to trim: that is the question.
Or is it that to trim or not to trim is not the question, but in fact is but a plea,
to gaze upon and ponder this,
doth trim suppose a alteration, delineation,
or simply put, but just a trim.
What implications doth arise in answer to a question put, or question not, if but a ponder? I know not, and so I squander precious space as through here wander, and answer not the question pondered, as I know not of what I speak.

The only difference between the creative and the conformists is that the creative will not be conquered and the conformists already are.

I like a man with sideburns that go to the middle of the ear or a little longer.
Cut the extra and then grow a moustache. I think a man looks dignified w/a moustache.

Bring 'em in a little closer to your ears... they go too far out into your cheeks.

But I do like chops.

Shave man, shave 'em. I've grown my hair out these last few months, to where I can suck on it with my mouth (not that I do, though.) I love having the long hair, and I, too, like Brian, shave up to where my 'burns would be. I like gottees (sp), but think men generally look better with shaved 'burns.
