We are thanking The Wolverine for this one. Mutton chops are also referred to as the sideburns or side whiskers.
Let your sideburns and mustache grow until they meet. Shave the hair on your chin up to the lower lip area. Keep your sideburns growing until they become fluffy and full, allowing them to extend down the sides of the cheeks to the corners of the face without any connection to either the chin hair or mustache.
Mutton Chops come in many different styles – Lamb Chops, “Friendly” mutton chops, Mutton chops with no goatee. Do your research before you opt for the chop!
