The most iconic men in history, like Elvis Presley and James Dean, have made the pompadour the classic hairstyle that it is today. It takes a certain kind of coolness, and a different level of badassery, to truly rock a pompadour. But it’s a fairly easy hairstyle and anyone can achieve this with the right tools and products. (Just not the incomparable coolness of Mr. Presley and Mr. Dean, though.)
The first thing that you need for a pompadour is the right haircut. Keep it short at the sides and the back. Make sure that the hair at the top is longer. With the help of some strong hold pomade and a comb, brush it up and style it to the height and fullness that you want. Lock the style in place by putting on some hairspray.

Thanks to its classic and elegant look, as well as its versatility and simplicity. It’s a haircut that requires very little maintenance, but it always looks very handsome and polished.
Like all good and easy to style haircuts, the Ivy League haircut should be trimmed short at the sides and at the back. The top will also be short, but with a lot more texture.
Ivy League haircuts are usually parted off the middle, so find your part and apply some light hold pomade. Start styling with a fine-toothed comb. Yes, it’s that easy.

If you want a functional and easy to wear hairstyle that doesn’t scrimp on style, pick this classic buzz cut. It’s very shortly cropped, which means less hair to wash, dry, and style.

A buzz cut is a perfect hairstyle for men who are on the go, and who enjoy a little dress up from time to time, but generally just like simple and beautiful things. It’s perfect for men who like neat and polished looks, minus the drama and the embellishments.

We just can’t get enough of the pompadour. There, we said it. There’s just something about all that hair styled into a pomp that makes us wish rock and roll was still alive and well, and that we still have the famous rock icons with us.
Like we said, not everybody can rock the pompadour, but you can very well try. Some are able to look awesome in it, but mainly because they’re trained professionals (models). But for the Average Joe, you will have to possess confidence and badassery to truly give the hairstyle justice.
So grow out the top hair. Trim the sides and back. Get the pomp to look full and tall. Keep the hair in place with some hairspray. Ready to get rockin’? Your hair certainly is!
These are time tested hairstyles that have been worn by our fathers, and our father’s fathers. They may get a modern twist to keep up with the latest trends, but the original look remains. Keep the style alive and rock the look the best way you know how.
