If you are thinking about a fresh and cool new style then why not try the stylish pompadour hairstyle. It started off as a female style, but now men are rocking it all over the world. The style, of course, was made popular by the legendary Elvis Presley. Of course, people are styling it just a little bit differently these days, but all and all it is the same style. These days, of course, it has become a very popular style indeed. We have some pretty amazing variations of the style here and we also have a step by step styling guide provided by Men’s Hairstyles Today.
If you’re not familiar with the pompadour style, then it’s similar to the faux-hawk because it’s short on the side while the top is long and styled in an amazing manner. The word pompadour comes from the “pomp” in regard to the volume on top of the head. It’s long and higher in the front than the back.
If you aren’t sure how to style the hair, then follow this step by step styling guide from Men’s Hairstyles Today and you will be rocking the pompadour style in no time.
Styling the Pompadour:
“To style a pompadour haircut, follow these simple steps:
Dry your hair with a towel till slightly damp.
Blow dry your hair on light heat while combing with a round brush. The goal is to style your hair into the general shape of a pompadour by brushing from front to back or front and diagonally, depending on how you want your pomp to look.
Get some pomade, rub it evenly between your hands to warm it up, and work the product into your hair evenly by running your hands through your hair. We recommend starting with your sides (unless you have a faded pompadour) and slowly moving to the top. Grab more pomade to hold your front, if needed.
Now comb and style your hair to expose the roots to the pomade, thereby creating a firmer hold. You can start by combing the sides back and then the top. If you want to have a part in your pomp, create it now.
To give the pomp the volume it needs, comb the front upwards. You can do this by combing straight up and using your other free hand to guide your falling hair into place. This technique will also help you control how low or high you want the front.
If the previous method didn’t work for you, another way to style a pomp is by placing your free hand in the middle of your head, so it is lightly touching your slicked-back hair. Push this hand forward slowly while simultaneously combing the hair in front upwards.”
There are many variations to the style and we have lots of options available to you.
