Pompadour’s by far could be the most ancient yet most modern hairstyle ever. Evolving to be something that men like Elvis Presley would dope, which at first 300 years ago was a feminine cut. Named after King Louis XV’s escort, this haircut falls short nowhere, not in heritage, not in style. One could very well argue this being an outdated cut, but worry not this era has modernized every classic it stepped foot on and has retained all quality. Keeping in mind all the attributes we’ll guide you through i.e. hair length, hair texture, volume, styling and effort – there is nothing stopping you from having this must have haircut.
Having your barber understand the pompadour you want is essential
We can’t stress enough on the fact that your haircut majorly depends on how the barber perceives it. Always begin with showing a picture, explaining the volume and if your hair is somewhat tricky – inform beforehand. Always mention the length you want and since the pompadour has now been integrated with all the fades, tapers and revolutionizing undercuts/design-cuts, make sure you confirm the pros and cons before experimenting (you are NOT a lab rat). Research over the desired result before showing up at the barber.
Neckline and sideburns, showstoppers of the pompadour.
Your neckline, the position and the curves or edginess is going to blend in with the whole outlook and also compliment the sideburns, whichever length you come up with. Now since the blending with the beard of almost any haircut is so easy, just let the fade roll in.
To achieve the desired look – styling is a must.
No doubt depending on your hair texture, layering and volume reduction makes it easier, even then the use of a high quality pomade before showing up at an event would be highly recommended. (Go over our page to find the best pomade for yourself).
