The basis of achieving this look all start in the barbershop. Make sure you find a barber that you trust to get the best out of your style. Ask for a fade on the side and a hard part using the clippers and the straight razor. Also, make sure you ask your barber to leave a decent amount of length on top to allow for the styling of your Easy Slick Back. Your fringe should be left quite long as this is an essential part of achieving this style.

A bit of history on the Pompadour

The original naming of this style was conceded in the 1700’s by the mistress of King Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour who wore her hair in this fashion. The basis of the style is that the hair is to be swept upward from the fringe and worn high over the forehead. This style was later made more famous by the likes of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash in the 1950’s and 60’s. This hairstyle has proved timeless as it has been adapted to current times with the short back and sides being the foundation to highlight the Easyadour, which can be styled in various ways with the same concept of lifting the fringe upward and creating height to the style. This look can be achieved with different hair types and is one of the most popular hairstyles in current times.
