Pump up your style with Pompadour Hairdos


Pump up your style with Pompadour Hairdos

Love Virat Kohli’s dashing looks, Shahid Kapoor’s effortless charm and David Beckham’s unparalleled style? Then you just can’t not have noticed their Pompadour hairdos. Image consultant and men’s style & grooming specialist Yatan Ahluwalia gave us a crash course on the Pompadour and how to max out this style.

Here’s what we learned in a nutshell:

  • The Pompadour was named after Madame de Pompadour. It predominantly remained a ladies’ haircut; until the king of rock’n’roll, Elvis Presley, made it his statement style.
  • Both celebrities and businessmen across the world are fond of sporting this look, thanks to its classic charm. But it is not recommend if you are over 40, as it’s a younger and trendier look that needs a head full of hair to pull-off well.
  • Works great on medium length hair in the centre, with a very short trim on the sides. You can achieve a dry look with wax or pomade; and a wet look with gel. Use a brush or wide tooth comb to style your hair into a pompadour.
  • A typical pompadour has short sides, with the hair swept upwards and backwards. It is versatile and there are a variety of different ways to style a pompadour to make it suit your face shape, lifestyle and career.
  • Pompodours are best avoided if you have a round face or a double chin.
