How to Grow Mutton Chops. While mutton chops may not be an up-to-date style right now, you may be looking for a way to make a unique statement. Growing your facial hair into a look that defines your individuality maybe more important than sporting the latest look. Mutton chops can give you an outstanding appearance and are not difficult to grow. If you can grow a beard, then you probably grow mutton chops .
Let your sideburns grow. Thick busy sideburns are the key to setting up a good look with mutton chops. You can't rely on just your beard to fill in all the spaces on your face that you need to cover for a set of chops.
Grow your mustache at the same time. Let it grow beyond the edges of your mouth. You can keep it trimmed above your top lip, but let the sides droop down to your chin.
Continue to shave your chin, from the ends of your mouth, down your neck.
Cut your sideburns when they eventually meet the edges of your mustache. While you shouldn't see any skin between the two lines of hair, you don't want to have the sideburns overlap the mustache for a clean mutton chop look.
Get a cleaner look with mutton chops that stand alone without any other facial hair. Shave off your mustache and let your sideburns continue to grow all the way down to your chin. Define the shape as they grow, and when they reach your chin, shape the hair so that it flairs out at the bottom. You can make them as wide as you like with this cut.
