This style has proven to be timeless since its conception in the 1700’s. It’s been adapted and altered since then, but the styling principles of the pompadour haircut remain the same. With the addition of the fade and short back and sides currently seen in barbershops and styling, we can safely say the pompadour or “pomp” has adapted to the modern day man and is one of the more popular styles seen in recent times.
How to cut a Modern Pompadour with a Hard Part
In order to nail this style, length needs to be maintained through the top section of the hair as well as the fringe. Secondly, the back and sides need to be finely sculpted, using the clipper over comb technique to assure an even fade or gradient from bottom to top, leaving slightly more length in the hair as you move upward. This creates a tight look, complimented by the styling of the Modern Pompadour, essentially highlighting the top section of the hair and the polished look of this style.
