Hair Style

Rockabilly Pompadour

MODERN TAKE. MODEL LOOK.

Originally named after King Louis XV’s mistress, the Pompadour hairstyle was made famous by a very different King in the 1950s. A present day red carpet favorite, it’s still a symbol of rugged rebellion.

More flexible than you’d think, the modern pompadour can suit most face types and gives you the chance to experiment with length. The edges stay tapered and tight, while up top it's all about volume and length. Wear yours polished, wild or however you like; but always with attitude. A strong look if you’ve got a beard or like to go a few days without a shave.  

HOW IT BEGAN

The History

Named after Madame de Pompadour, King Louis XV’s mistress, the pomp is pretty scandalous as far as hairstyles go. Initially popular among women, a certain King of Rock ‘n Roll made it big among guys in the '50s.

An old school classic with modern flair. This look is all about height and volume, so put your hairdryer and brush to work.
