Learn how to pump that pomp!
If you ask us, the pompadour haircut is one of the most popular short hairstyles of 2016 for men. Not only has it been donned by the likes of David Beckham, Justin Timberlake and Zac Efron, but it’s also become a sure hit with Instagrammers, too.
The pompadour haircut is popular for two reasons: because of its stylish and sophisticated look, and because it’s super easy to style. To get the perfect pompadour shape (which is traditionally longer on the top and sides), look to an experienced barber. Once you’ve got your hair cut correctly, it literally takes a matter of minutes to style. But if you haven’t yet mastered the right way to style your pomp, then you need to see our step-by-step tutorial below. You won’t be disappointed, we promise!
The pompadour haircut styling guide
Start with clean hair.
Prep your hair.
Editor’s tip: Spray this product at arms length, and then run your fingers through your hair to evenly distribute the product.
The combination of the heat from the hair dryer and the Toni&Guy wax will help to form, and then hold, the shape of your pompadour.
To apply the clay, take a fingertip-sized piece and warm it up between the palms of your hands. Then, gently run your hands over your pompadour to style it.
