The Pompadour clearly is the hottest trend as far as men’s hairstyles are concerned and it certainly has arrived in a major way. From businessmen to celebrities, everyone has been rocking this new look recently. But do you really know what the hairstyle looks like? What is the Pompadour exactly?
The Pompadour Hairstyle got its name from Madame de Pompadour, the mistress of King Louis XV. It remained a woman’s haircut for a very long time after that until, one man, the great Elvis Presley, chose to style his hair that way and make it world famous. He certainly was the one who made everyone go crazy about this hairstyle.
A regular pompadour is worn short on either side and the hair is swept upwards and to the back, almost like an undercut hairstyle. But, with time passing by, the look has gotten far more flexible and there are now a number of ways in which you can style pompadours in order for them to suit the shape of your face, career or lifestyle.
