SIDEBURNS FOR WOMEN

Sideburns for women: get in the loop

From canvas to catwalk to Chung, sideburns might be this spring’s hair fashion trend. A trend with its roots in Victorian styling, the kiss curls of the Roaring Twenties, 60’s geometric cuts and 70’s hippy culture, Imogen Fox of The Guardian suggests that the sideburn is ‘haute, pragmatic, historical and possibly feminist’, whilst the Man Repeller blog suggests that it could become this season’s sideboob. Either way, it’s another case of letting it grow!
