That's definitely not just you. The only thing that's worse than elaborately shaved sideburns or crazy bushy sideburns is no sideburns. There's that happy medium sideburn that makes a man infinitely more attractive.
OMG, last week I was in Dallas and had meetings all week. The chick in my group totally had sideburns...matter of fact she had Prince's haircut too...hmpph.I remember being distracted alot looking at her sideburns!
I am right there with you.
If a dude's intention is to make his hair look like a helmet (and you like that), then by all means, go nuts with the sideburns. Otherwise, I'm thinking, NO. - G
I think they are hit or miss. Some guys look like Wolverine with them, others its adds to the hotness!! Ohh James Franco tho is cute with whatever he does! =)
The good thing about furry chops is... the tend to go away.
It's not just you, some of those made me cringe and others made me think dirty thoughts (I'm looking at you Lenny Kravitz).Mmmmmmmm, Lenny Kravitz...yummy.
You can put the same exact set of sideburns on ten different people and it will look totally different. Some people can pull them off and others simply can NOT!
I'm not too too particular when it comes to sideburns...as long as they don't look like dirty vajayjay pubes or presidential a la john adams status. ifyaknowhatimean :)
ummmm whats with Luda's?! he looks RIDONKULOUS! I kinda think sideburns are hit or miss. They either work for the guy or they dont...and if they dont...he really shouldn't TRY making them work LOL xoxox!
I love sideburns but only when the man has a strong, noble face;-)
Hm, I've never really thought about burns... I don't have an opinion I don't think. Is that crazy?!
this post is so randomly awesome. i love it!xo Alison
I like me a little bit of sideburn...not too elaborate though.
On the right guy... like Dave fuckinghot Grohl... they're just fine.
...there is a happy medium here. No muttonchops, please. And that super-curly one you pictured just makes me want to *doink* it off that guy's ear with a flick of my thumb-and-finger.*doink**doink*okay that's enough fun for now. *hahahaha!*
OMG. It's LENNY. KRAVITZ. *drool*Is it just me or can he make sideburns and polyester look HOT?
My brother in law calls them "Liza Minnelli's" And says to his son "OOOH! Time to go shave your Liza Minnelli's off!"hahahahahaaaaSome guys can pull them off and some can't. If they're clean cut like rockaiblly looking whatshisface then I like them but on My Name is Earl guy - uuuuuugh
Too much and it is really bad. Too little and it looks like a bowl cut. Then there is the sideburns-low-beard that make you look like an Amish dude!
Really fun post!xoxox,CC
Yeah you are definitely not alone in this one... I love the last one of Jermaine and Bret. I can't lie, those are some good looking New Zealanders...-Ellie
I find some of them sexy, but when they overdo it (like those curls, or weird designs, or super long ones) I get really turned off. Like eeew do something about it! And I secretly want to shave them off. Hee hee.
Sideburns are tricky, but some people can pull them off: case in point, James Dean, James Franco, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Bret from FOTC...I think you just need to be hot to begin with, honestly.
i'm ok with sideburns as long as they're not the main attraction, if you know what i mean.
some guys can bring the hotness - some can't. LOL
SUCH a deal breaker...so WITH you!
Ah, this is so educational - I'm totally naive when it comes to sideburns, I think I don't even notice them (unless they are like SOO in your face). But looking at these pictures my conclusion is: Some guys can get away with it, MOST CAN'T.
TOTALLY!! bahahah....those curly ones made me choke. i cannot do the the ringlet sideburn...ever. they remind me of curl rat-tails and they don`t belong there. I like the pretty classic kinda bigger easy rider style burns. some men that completely shave off where a sideburn should be LOOK SO RETARDED!! bahahaha...i love this so much. Did you have any steps in the bunch of them..hmm..i`ll have to go over them again.i fell in love with my man for his burns i swear. now he`s all beard and now i`m loving the beards. but same thing not everyone can wear them, especially if they are just straight up straggly pubes. :P
Oh and The Greaser burn, love the greaser burns. mmmm mmmm
I do like some sideburns, nicely trimmed ones. Mutton chops? no way!
yeah JEMAINE!!! ...I'm so glad you included the 90210 boys because they were ALL ABOUT IT in the 90's .lol. funny post!
Oh hell yes to Chace Crawford's sideburns - HOTTNESS.
Since my husband is bald I don't ever have to worry about sideburns. That would look way dumb.
You are not alone sistah! Some are hot, some are not!
I had not really thought about it before, but in looking at the pics the sideburns seem to accentuate the already good looking guys features if it not over the top and well groomed. As to the less attractive men, it sort of accentuates that too. The bushy and weird ones are just nasty.
Mmmmmhhhmmmmm. I do love me some Wolverine sideburns. Not as much as I love me some Wolverine, but I'm cool with a sexy, hairy man any day (or night) of the week. :)
Awww, look at John Travilta then and now.I've had a thing for him since Saturday Night Fever.I never knew it was because of the sideburns (-;
Not just you! The sides can be a big deal breaker!
Nope, not just you but, a lot of the sideburns here are amazingly awesome!
It all depends on the guy!
There really needs to be a happy medium when it comes to sideburns for me. Too much or none at all usually looks out of place.
Erm... i kind of love a good 70's sideburn... on the right guyBut then i love bit of facial hair, to the point i have hung around outside the bathroom door pleading with my hubs when he says he's going to shave his offyes, i'm sad!
awwwww.....brings back memories - Dylan!!!(lenny kravitz can do no wrong).
I never really notice sideburns, unless they are exaggerated. But i think i prefer without.
I LOVE SIDEBURNS-!! maybe it is the rebel in me. . . when a guy can pull this off~ TOTAL HOTNESS~Dawn
Dave Grohl?? With or without burns I still love him!!
Jemaine's are the best. Saw FOTC at the Bowl last month, so awesome!Thank you for the advice about the HR stuff. It really is invaluable and really appreciated. Thank god you're not in HR anymore. I don't how you did it for even a day.
I don't mind the natural ones, but the one's that are "HEY LOOK AT MY SIDEBURNS" I don't like.
I agree, I could never date a guy with wolverine sideburns. In Minnesota, sideburns associate with Joe Mauer (MN twins player). Little kids wear fake sideburns when they go to baseball games. But I think he pulls them off well... here's a link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Joe-Mauers-sideburns/311637349305
aaaaah definitely not just you. You are so freaking funny this post got better and better as I scrolled down. I went from aaaww memories Dylan, Brandon to ACKKKK!! Prince looks so creepy as does that dude next to George Michael, and OH YEAH so does George Michael!
Why is it that Hugh Jackman looks ridiculously sexy as Wolverine, even though with that crazy sideburns++ hair, he should not?Also, should I feel bad about finding Chace Crawford insanely attractive?
Gawd, I love 'em. I have a strong sexual reaction to certain kinds of sideburns and have made some dumb moves to get close to the cheeks of men who display them. My girlfriends know to be on the lookout for me: "Chops at 9 o'clock!" makes my heart pound. Sideburns need to be huge, fuzzy, and irreverent to turn my crank. I see some fine specimens here, and I had hopes to see the following image, by far the best sideburns on a famous person, in my opinionhttp://blogs.courant.com/eric_danton_sound_check/093624983989.jpg
hey ya it never occurred to me they do make a difference! your picks are quite yummy! :P
Once I told a guy that I find sideburns sexy, and when I next saw him he'd tried to grow some! Unfortunately, he wasn't a very hairy guy so his attempt was a bit lame. I'm definitely not a fan of sideburns that join up to the moustache! (Except maybe during Movember.)
the bf has experimented with various sideburns (and mustaches but thats another subject, have you covered it? i seem to remember so?) he mostly keeps it to the dave grohl, nicholas cage & johnny knoxville variety as shown above and he looks very rock'n'rolly xbut who's the black guy with the pointy burns? those look evil! and tom cruise looks like an egg, yuk
I just like men with hair. Lotsa hair. Even back hair. But ok, Luda's look kind of ridic.
