    If Pike had shaved properly, don't you think he would have thought a little more about doing just that?

    NuSpock was mine too, going into STID. Coming out, I am now a teeny bit obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch. What is it about those gangly pasty Brits? Oh yeeesh.

    Fun fact: the US Navy actually forbids pointed sideburns. The exact wording in the rule book is something like "this is the US Navy, not Starfleet."

    If Pike were in the next movie, he'd probably upgrade to muttonchops. His sideburns really looked bad in this one.

    Was it really that bad? Maybe he didn't shave it off because he knew his role won't be in the movie for too long...

    Pike's sideburns really are distracting. I can't even remember when him and Kirk were talking about in that bar scene since my attention was fixated on those sideburns.

    I remember noticing Kirks sideburns at one point. Spock's looked lovely.
    I went and googled Pike's because I couldn't conjure up an image of him with mutton chops. Haha I think he looked nicely greyed! Considering he's older than the others, he doesn't need to be so clean shaven.

    I liked the side-burn stylings of all the characters who sported them.

    :) A nice little nod to past series' gone by...

    When Spock melded with Pike, his true intention was to learn the secret behind such bangin' sideburns.

    They were probably an energy being or something.

    Kirk's haircut gets really weird in scenes like the Uhura/turbolift conversation - when the POV cuts between shots you can see that the two sides don't even match around the ear area. And yeah, McCoy looks bad at times.

    This movie is not going to be nominated for a Best Hairdressing Oscar, that's for sure.

    Pike - I wouldn't kick him out of bed either ;)

    With or without the sideburns

    How strange... Sideburns aside, I think the hair on both Bones and Kirk in the movie looked great.. Kirk's hair is an improvement over the messy hair he had in ST09.. And I actually like Bones haircut in this one...

    To boldly go where no sideburns have gone before.
