 What is the Pompadour?

Did you know the Pompadour is one of the most popular men’s hairstyles for 2016? This hairstyle features:

  • Short length on the sides and back
  • Long hair on top that is combed upwards and towards the back
  • A large volume of hair in the front that recedes towards the back

These days, different variations of the pompadour exist depending on a person’s face shape, lifestyle, and preference. For example, the classic style has long sides that are slicked back.

 Where did it originate?

Did you know that the pompadour was originally a female hairstyle? It was named after King Louis XV’s mistress, Madame de Pompadour. It took the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley, to finally introduce the pompadour as a hairstyle for men.

How do you style it?

  1. Start out by using a towel to dry your hair, keeping it slightly damp.
  2. Blow dry on low, while combing with a round brush from front to back.
  3. Rub the right amount of pomade (depending on length) into your hands and run it evenly through your hair. Use your fingers to reach the roots. (Note: Begin at the sides and move toward the top)
  4. Finish it off with a final comb… Sides to the back and then the top of your head. Create a part if needed.
