10 Pompadour Hairstyles That Pinoy Men Can Try

Wear your hair with flair by creating a pompadour hairstyle. Here are some ideas.

The pompadour hairstyle features voluminous, slicked-backed hair held in place by hairspray or hair gel. It was a staple hairstyle among male rock ‘n roll stars in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Fast forward to today, and the classic pompadour has taken on modern forms. It still has its signature voluminous top section, but a lot of men now wear it with short sides, combining it with other haircut trends.

Curious about the pompadour? Here are various ways to rock this beloved hairstyle.

Different Ways to Wear a Pompadour

1. Barber’s Cut With Pompadour

Take this popular haircut to the next level by creating a pompadour hairstyle. Blow-dry the top section while brushing it upward and backward with a round brush to give it volume. Then, apply a coin-sized amount of pomade to your hair to make your hairstyle last.

Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair full-looking by protecting it against hair fall. Use Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo, which has caffeine and Trichazole Actives that help fortify your strands. This way, your hair grows uninterrupted by hair fall due to breakage. 

2. Undercut Pompadour

The height of the hair and the shaved sides give the illusion of a longer, slimmer face. This is also a good way to combine a pompadour hairstyle with a clean cut look.

CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men

Editor’s tip: Men are more prone to dandruff because their scalps are greasier than women’s. To keep these white flakes at bay, use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It has Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology to remove, resist, and prevent dandruff. This shampoo also gets rid of dirt, grease, and grime, leaving your scalp with a clean and fresh feeling.

3. Classic Pompadour

Nail that big, poofy hair with the help of your favorite pomade. You can also add a few spritzes of hairspray to make your pompadour last longer.

The classic pompadour adds a retro vibe to your look, but it’s wearable. You can wear it with your suit and tie for a smart and dapper look.

4. Pompadour With a Side Part

A good side-part pompadour has clean lines at the hair part and a structured wave or swirl-like shape on top. You can make this look less formal by using a hair putty or matte clay (instead of pomade) to style your hair.

Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Don’t let product residue build up on your hair. At the end of the day, wash your hair with Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo. It gets rid of dirt and grease from your hair and scalp. It is also enriched with caffeine and menthol to give you that fresh, energizing feel after showering.
