Textured Pompadour

Rated  5.0 5 Star

This is a modern take on classic pompadour hairstyle; with a matte finish and slightly undone style. The longer length at the front has been swept back off the face, and styled with plenty of volume, texture, and definition.

Why We Love It:

Another modern classic from barber Valerio Federico.

I love this dry, matte finish and all the texture in the hair. A true editorial look!

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Pompadour.
  • Volume and texture.
  • Scissor cut.
  • Leave the length on the top and at the front.
  • Taper the sides.

Get The Look

  • To start the cut, the hair is sectioned into a horseshoe shape.
  • The back and sides are cut first, taking the hair and cutting at a 90 degree angle. The hair is cut in a square shape.
  • A radial section is then taken from the top of the crown where the hair is over-directed and elevated to 45 degree angle. Cutting the hair like this will build up weight, whilst also giving the top a softer finish.
  • Moving to the top of the head, the hair is connected to the back and sides using horizontal sections at a 45 degree angle.
  • Some layers can be built into the top as well.
  • The final stage of the main cut is to then connect the long fringe using vertical sections at a 90 degree angle.
  • For detailing, after the hair is dried, a scissor over comb technique is used on the back and sides, and deep parallel point cutting is done through the top to remove any bulk.
  • For styling, use your hands to create natural volume and that sweeping finish.
  • Use products that will give the hair a dry matte finish.
