about mutton chops

Mutton chops are long sideburns that extend down to the corners of the mouth.

Let your sideburns grow down to the corners of your mouth. Terminate the sideburns with a vertical line defined at each corner of the mouth. The bottom line of the sideburns should be defined along your jaw line.
