Sideburns, sideboards, or side whiskers are patches of facial hair grown on the sides of the face, extending from the hairline to run parallel to or beyond the ears. The term sideburns is a 19th-century corruption of the original burnsides, named after American Civil War general Ambrose Burnside, a man known for his unusual facial hairstyle that connected thick sideburns by way of a moustache, but left the chin clean-shaven.
The Chin strap beard is basically a thin, half- to one-inch strip of hair that begins with one sideburn, continues down to the chin, follows the jawline past the chin to the other side and then back up the other side of the face to connect with the opposite sideburn. The Chinstrap creates or emphasizes a strong jawline, while minimizing the beard’s appearance.
