The Pompadour is a surprisingly versatile men’s hairstyle. This pomp shape can be shiny or dull, combed or messy, pushed back or skewed. The men’s hair trends for 2017 reinvent the pomp with texture, side panels, fades and even more variations.
The styling of a pompadour is a combination of warmth and product. Apply a strong product through damp hair and blow dry in high heat. Using a round brush, guide the hair back into the pompadour form. Focus extra attention on the front along the hairline. Finish the blow-dry with a dash of cold hair to seal the cuticle and maintain that shape. Last, work more product through hair with a comb or fingers, depending on the style you are aiming for.
