Sideburns

Sideburns are a style of facial hair in which hair is grown in front of the ears, extending down from head hair.

Sideburns can be worn alone, or in combination with moustache or goatee for example. When hair extends from ear to ear via the chin, the sideburns are merely part of a beard, and thus not called as such.

They take their name from General Ambrose Burnside.
