The Pompadour, or Pomp for short, is a hairstyle that has proven to be timeless since its conception in the 1700’s. The Pomp’s styling principles have always remained the same, and it has become a popular men’s hairstyle in recent times. Barbers of today combine the Pomp’s original styling technique with short back and sides, to create what is now known as the Easy. This look can be styled in various ways, but it is most commonly worn high, with hair slicked back from the fringe area to the back of the head. The Pomp element brings height and definition to this style, whilst the slick back gives it a refined and sleek finish.
How To Cut An Easy Slick Back
To get the most out of this style, hair needs to have length through the top section, as well as the fringe. Secondly, the back and sides need to be finely sculpted using the clipper over comb technique, to ensure an even fade from bottom to top, leaving slightly more length in the hair as you move upward. This creates a tight look, with the styling of the Easy complementing the smooth finish of the slick back. Very refined and with a tidy finish, this look leaves no hair out of place.
