The haircut is named in honor of the Marquise de Pompadour, the official favorite of the French king Louis XV. This hairstyle, which she wore, soon became a manifestation of luxury and status among the ladies of the 18th century. This fashion got to the incredible: a frame was woven into the hair so that the Pompadour was taller and lasted longer.
In the XX century, the hairstyle regained popularity, and this time with a strong half of humanity: Elvis Presley, who conquered everyone with his incredible voice, artistry and, no doubt, appearance. Pompadour was worn by everyone: rock and roll players, ordinary townspeople, youths, women, and for men it was the norm to spend about an hour styling their hair in the morning. In old photographs, the Pompadour men’s haircut can be seen for the first time on the dudes – his fans.
WHAT IT IS: TECHNOLOGY AND HAIR STYLING
Things are much easier with Pompadour today. Without frames and with a huge selection of hair fixing products, with adaptations and combinations of different haircuts and techniques, this haircut is a universal solution for any age category, from teenagers to older men.
Pompadour – volume in the upper part of the head, smoothed sides, and in general, the haircut is smooth and “streamlined”. The upper strands and temporal zones have different lengths: the hair is cut short on the sides, with a soft transition (for example, in combination with the Fade technique), the hair remains long in the direction from the forehead to the crown of the head. With the help of hair styling products, the length is combed up, “tufted”, back or to the side. Depends on your preferences and face shape, which we will definitely tell you about below.
The haircuts technology is the same everywhere: the hand of the master and the styling products play a role. First, your hair is washed, even though it is already clean. Then the question of the direction of the hair is decided: this is discussed directly with you. The master can suggest the types of Pompadour that suit you. Regardless of the parting or the side on which you are going to comb your hair, you need to choose only one direction – so that the hair gets used to styling and is as voluminous as possible. After the haircut itself, the finished Pompadour is shaped with a bang roller.
