You’ll find the pompadour haircut to be one of the most trending and easily recognizable on wherever you go. In this article, we will talk about the spices that we can put to this dashing haircut and about its wonderful variations.
What is Pompadour?
It all started when Elvis, The Rock, and Roll King was regularly seen on a particular type of haircut in his prime iconic time. All the credit for sporting this unusual alpha hairstyle doesn’t go to Elvis alone; it goes to the truck drivers. You may ask how the truck drivers get the share of credit. Well, Elvis was initially training to be one of them, unless he chose the music genre and gained worldwide fame.
Pompadour haircuts have countless variations, from long to medium to short, all of them having more or less the same macho sense. Modifications include a disconnected style, undercut paired, an extra long one or a swift short one. In addition to that, there are many tools you can use to help style your cut.
Let’s begin delving into this alpha cut without any further ado.
1. The gentleman cut
Here you can see what is called the gentleman pompadour. To get this kind of style, it’s quite good taking pictures to your stylist. The roll on the middle is neither too long nor too short.
2. Buzzed sides
There’s no rule for the pompadour haircut when it comes to handling the sides. You can buzz them to any razor length. As seen below, this man has chosen to go for a short guard setting(#2) for his side hair.
3. Styled sense
Longer pompadours don’t always need to be gelled up back. You can simply style them into your mood to get a more customized and dashing look.
A fully shaven side(#1) adds more ravish effect to your cut.
4. Uniform drag back
It’s all up to your preference whether to curl or just make a smooth drag back of your mid hair. There’s nothing better than having a smooth top when planning a party. Go for it.
5. Short and low
A short but clean pompadour cut is best when you ask your stylist to taper your cut such that the hair seems to fade into your neck skin. This technique is the soul of the pompadour haircut.
6. Hold the middle
You need to spice this outstanding haircut to get the most effect. And high-hold pomades are the best anyone can get. Light hair such as the one down below become the best version of itself when a light hold is applied.
7. Lined pomade
Creating a perfect pompadour haircut that you’re fully satisfied is quite a task unless you are used to it. Firstly you’ve got to have a damp hair, from just out of the shower. It’s quite a tricky process overall, but don’t give up quite easily, would you?
8. Dark and Shining
As much as the men’s pompadour haircut suits round-faced people, black-haired people are as much luck in that sense. Look at the energy this amazing cut radiates outward. It’s one of a kind.
Caramel is not just only for girls who are trying to make a braid or an updo. If you manage to get yourself a shiny caramel effect on your pomaded hair, then it’s inevitable that you would be in a real problem of handling all the hot chicks.
10. Lifted Horns
It’s incredible how adapting your front pomade-coated-hair to a horn-like-shape gives you a pure macho look. On top of that, an excellent facial haircut will prove to be the icing on the cake.
11. The headlines
It can’t be right if someone tells you that the lines in your hand determine your future. Rather nowadays, one thing is sure, its that the style of lines in your hair defines your future. Don’t you agree with me?
You surely will after looking at this dashing young man. He’s even got face-lines. That’s mesmerizing.
12. Brown smoothie
This cool style results when you know how to lift your hair properly with a comb and apply a few generous scoops of holding pomade to your lifted hair, finishing it in and backward.
Women love them, its pretty damn sure.
13. Thick rolls downwards
Pompadour fade haircut won’t get much ideal example than this. This guy has finished his pomade application with a backward rolling of his mid hair all the way back to the neck.
The nice and shiny coating his pomade has given to his hair is majestic.
14. Faded to the neck
As we have discussed before, if you know how to ask for a pompadour haircut properly to your stylist, you’re done already. We love how this guy has asked his hair specialist to make a smooth and serene roll up his neck.
Parting your hair while you are on the way to get a pompadour haircut is necessary. But applying a cool shade of matching texture afterward is great when it comes to having a macho look.
16. Boy’s fade
This boy would be an exception if he didn’t have girls around him when he was studying in the high school. This type of uniform and combed fade are seductive and have a high fame value.
17. As perfect as it can get
Asking for the perfect example of men’s pompadour haircut would be the same as asking for this photo. As a rule in haircut industry, the shinier your mid pompadour gets, the merrier.
18. Desirable lift
Parting your hair is simple, you just need to pick a parting line and comb your asset in opposite directions. But when it comes of lifting it after coating with pomade is a work of pure art. Those who mastered are only revered.
It’s unbelievable how this young man has got a piercing look like that of an astounding nymph. Maybe it’s his dark eyes and large earloops.
20. Your average style
It’s false if someone says that pompadour haircut is just for models and stuntmen — actually its best for you.
21. Parted pompadour haircut
You can part your hair too in this hairstyle. This is an optional step, of course. Unparted pompadour looks dashing also.
But in case you want to part your hair, only pick up a parting line ( choosing just above your right eyebrow is great) and comb your hair in opposite directions from there.
A parted pompadour is great even in short length as below.
22. Rough and curly styles
Roughness adds more alpha value to men. We can see the bright line, starting from just above the left eyebrow is chosen as a parting line which fits the hairstyle greatly.
23. Bent way
Sometimes its great to have a bent pompadour haircut. Its even found to be a popular haircut among athletes. Barcelona goalkeeper Mark Andre Ter Stegan is one of them.
