A long time ago my barber (mistakenly) cut off one of my peyos. In my immediate agony, I didn’t object to him cutting off my other peyos to make it “even”. (I don’t know if it would help any if I had him leave the second side; I may have looked a bit out of place though.) Anyways, even since I have never been able to reestablish my previous peyos.
I am “heimish” (down hat, etc.) and my peyos were thick and about down to my chin, though I keep them behind my ear.
Any ideas how to get them back to what they once were?May 23, 2011 1:03 pm at 1:03 pm #771814Pac-ManMember

all you can do now is wait for them to grow.

Because they went to the same barber as Feter Shmelka?May 23, 2011 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #771819adorableParticipant
wow you started a trend… you became the new “in style” guy!May 23, 2011 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #771820Pac-ManMember
Is restoring the original peyos any more difficult than letting it grow, by not cutting the area when getting a haircut?May 23, 2011 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #771821ZeesKiteParticipant
Is this a fe or male? I don’t think males are allowed to ‘even out’ if one accidentally got cut off. Am I missing something here? (besides size 2 screws)May 23, 2011 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #771822canineMember
So if the barber snips off the right peyos of a Satmar guy by mistake, the poor fellow needs to walk around with a one-sided extra long peyos for the next 6 months?May 27, 2011 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #771823adorableParticipant
anyone see the pester rebbe’s video “Thruway”? am i the only one who noticed that he only has peyos on one side?
