    Where do people shave their sideburns up to? I tend to change, normally going with mutton chops or 'worse'. Though sometimes I keep it simple and just grow a straight sideburn to just past my ear, if not any of those then the highest I'll usually go is middle of my ear. For the first time in years, I have shaved my sideburns COMPLETELY. They stop at my actual hairline now, this is surprisingly liberating.

    I stop mine about 2mm below the top of my ear just so I stay within regulations.

    About a quarter inch below the point where the top of my ear meets my head.

    I take a nice middle of the road approach and stop halfway between "no sideburns" and "muttonchops." I use the bottom lobe of my ear as a guide. I like the slightly old fashioned look long sideburns give.:)

    My sideburns tend to get straggly if I let them get too long, I keep mine halfway down my ear!!!

    My barber trims them to about the middle of the tragus (the front nub on the ear that hair grows out of :ashamed001: ). I try to keep it about there when I shave, but somehow they tend to get a bit longer.

    I fear we keep the same look. I used to keep mutton chops when I had long hair. Now that I have a respectable hair cut I keep my side burns in check

    No sideburns, I keep my hair in a modified high and tight, so side burns would look ridiculous.

    i usually get my sideburns to form the chinstrip since im a young cat but as i have been growing my hair back to my college days i stop at the top of the ear lobe so its pretty high but it looks better with long hair i feel

    Times and styles change.
    When I was younger and I couldn't really grow sideburns, so I wanted them long.
    Now that I want to pretend that I am an adult and in control I keep them around the top of the ear.
    My barber keeps me honest, and I keep it there.
