Section and Comb:
Divide your hair into three sections - the sides, the back, and the top/front. Use a comb to neatly section off the sides and back, combing them down and back. For the top/front section, comb the hair forward and slightly upward to create the foundation for the pompadour.
Blow-dry with Precision:
Using a round brush, blow-dry the top/front section of your hair while simultaneously lifting it upward and away from your face. This technique adds volume and helps shape the pompadour. Ensure that the sides and back lay flat against your head for a sleek appearance.
Create the Pompadour:
With your hairdryer still in hand, continue blow-drying the top/front section, but this time focus on directing the air towards the roots. Use the brush to push the hair backward, creating height and a smooth, rounded shape. For added volume, you can gently tease the roots with a comb.
Shape and Sculpt:
Once you've achieved the desired height and shape, use a fine-toothed comb or your fingers to refine the pompadour's look. Smooth out any flyaways, and use the comb to define the parting on the sides if desired. The goal is to achieve a polished and structured pompadour.
LOCK AND LOAD:
To ensure your classic pompadour stays in place throughout the day, apply a firm-hold hairspray. Hold the can at a distance and mist the hair, focusing on the top/front section. This will help maintain the volume and structure of your pompadour, giving it that timeless look.
Congratulations, you look like your grandfather now.
