Modern Pompadour

5.0 5 Star

This hairstyle is the epitome of a modern take on the classic pompadour. You can adapt the pompadour to your own personal style but this one has plenty of length all over, with it all swept back off the face and tight around the ears.  Just don’t forget to build the volume at the front.

MFH says

Big fan of this look; and even bigger fan of the man behind it Colin Petrie. This hairstyle is a classic that will never go out. Huge volume in the front is married with super-slick sides.

  • Use a blowdryer, if possible, to create a little control and volume towards the front.
