How to Trim Sideburns

Learn how to trim sideburns from Suite 303 stylist April Barton in this Howcast video.


Okay. Determining sideburn lines. So let's say we going to do a clean shave. We're not going to do a razor clean shave. So, I'm just going to take you down with the trimmer. So it will be like an after five o'clock shadow.

When you're thinning up in through here or you have an oblong face but yours is lengthy you don't want to have a sideburn that's ultra long because it's going to elongate.

So we're going to determine a better length for you that's going to pop your jawbone and it's going to square off the jawbone at the bottom. And it's going to accent the cheekbone as well.

And I'll show you from one side to the next how we do that. We're going to do the Joker face.

Okay. So you see how this actually protrudes and looks a lot more square. And this sort of angles out with the cheekbone. So that's a beautiful sideburn length. And we're not doing it.

Now I'm going to show you as an example what a longer burn does so you can compare the sides. So, see the difference between sideburns? This is very, it's a trim, it's a look. The fact that you have your hair a little bit longer it kind of goes kind of parallel with that.

But in order to have it that long I would prefer your hair coming mid-ear to be that long. Okay? So since it's not and it's here I prefer the sideburns to be a bit shorter.

Mom would love it. There's the boy I know.
