When someone has short hair that has grown a bit too long and it sticks out on the sides like the eighth president of the United States, Martin Van Buren
, who was bald with two sticky-outy regions of hair on either side of his head. This happens with normal people who have full heads of hair when their ears make it stick out over the sides.
Your Van Buren is unsightly and it's driving me mad. Just get a haircut already!
