The pompadour. It’s the official hairstyle of rebels – James Dean, Johnny Cash, Morissey. This is the king of slicked back hair. As usual, the right haircut is the key to styling the pomp.
It’s all about length at the top – the minimum length required is
eyebrow length. This tall look requires medium to long hair – probably 6
inches in length. The back and sides can be longer or shorter,
depending on your preference. Wearing hair tight to the sides, like in
an undercut, will make the pompadour hair seem taller.
The second key to styling the pompadour is product. The name greaser
came from the high sheen products used to style the pomp, like the
famous Royal Crown Hair Dressing.
You’ll get maximum hold to style a sky high pomp with a glossy
sheen. If you have fine hair and want to wash it clean every day, try a
water-based product like Layrite Deluxe Pomade.
