Sidelocks are patches of hair that grow on both sides of the face. It extends from the hairline and typically grows till below the ear. It may sound like a very simple and unimportant part of human anatomy. But, this tiny patch of hair holds great social importance. The aesthetic appeal of sideburns is appreciated on a continuum from ancient war times to flashy modern trends.
How are sidelocks important?
The aesthetic appeals of sidelocks are undeniable. Various renowned people from history have been seen sporting a huge sideburn. In India, it’s a very dominant styling feature in men of Rajasthan. Sidelocks are often associated with power, authority and masculinity. The toughest characters in Indian cinemas often rock a sideburn. People of some culture grow a sideburn due to religion or tradition. It’s very evident that sidelocks have been and are still an integral part of people’s fashion statement.
- Cultural significance: In Judaism, a beard is a hair that runs from the head down to the rest of the body. Sidelocks act like bridges between the mind and the heart. For the Sikhs, ‘kesh’ is as holy as every other creation. The Amish consider beard to be a sign of manhood. Their beard sports a thick extent of sideburns.
- Fashion Statement: Men have preferred growing a sideburn since historical times, maybe even earlier. Sidelocks are preferred by women celebrities also. Naturally, while women earlier used to wax off their lower sideburns, now it’s considered stylish to wear their hair with a well-groomed sideburn. Short & sleek sideburns and long & floozy sideburns are equally popular.
What is a sidelock hair implantation?
Sidelock Hair Implantation is a kind of hair implantation where suitable hair follicles are extracted from a donor site (preferably where there is an abundance/excess) and are implanted in the recipient site, i.e. sidelocks.
Who can get a sidelock hair implantation?
Anyone who desires to get sidelocks can get a sidelock hair implantation. Of course, there are age restrictions and health limitations. But apart from those, anyone who can’t grow a sidelock or who wants a denser sidelock or who had an unfortunate injury can opt for a sidelock hair implantation surgery. Though a sideburn is a classic look, it looks best on people with a longer face.
When Nageswar (name changed) came into our clinic, he had a disjointed sidelock and beard. Here’s a look on how his sidelock hair implantation was planned.
How to get it done?
Sidelock hair implantation is a simple hair transplantation process. Although it is not an extensive procedure, it still takes a careful and a skillful hand to get the job done correctly. Hence, finding the right doctor is the most crucial step if you want to go for sidelock hair implantation. You can decide on how dense you want your sideburn as long as it is compatible with your skin/health. A sidelock hair implantation will not take more than a couple of hours. It’s nearly painless, and only a local anaesthesia is used if required. A patient is allowed to go home the next day. Careful after-care for just a week will give you the desired results within a couple of months.
