Sideburns, sideboards, or side whiskers are patches of facial hair grown on the sides of the face, extending from the hairline to below 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 mustache but left the chin clean-shaven.
The North and South have gone to war again, and this time there will be no close shaves. Some of the most outrageous facial hair of the American Civil War included massive mutton chop sideburns; some of the most hirsute gents went down in history for their epic deeds on the battlefield.
Will a shaggy South rise again or will an unkempt Union prevail?
We have hundreds of costume beards, mustaches, eye brows and sideburns all in the full range of colors.

Soak the mustache or hair piece in a tub of warm water with either baking soda, very mild shampoo or Woolite. Swish around in the water to make sure all parts of the mustache is exposed to the cleaning agent. Refill tub with water and 1/4 cup hair conditioner. Soak mustache or hair piece.
