The modern pompadour, it’s on magazine covers, music videos, movies, TV shows and especially in the men’s style blogs. Part rockabilly. Part gangster. 100% cool. This cut has taken over like wild fire and doesn’t seem to be slowing down in 2013.
How to Pull It Off
You’ve made up your mind and you’re going to get the cut. You don’t want to look like you are trying too hard, so there are some things to keep in mind next time you pay EITR Lounge a visit. You don’t want to look like you are trying too hard. . The trick is to keep the arrangement contained and natural looking. The back and sides should be cropped to around a half an inch and the top should be cut around four inches, a length that works best with thick, straight locks. If you have fine hair, keep the top to about 3 1/2 inches, with curls, ask your grooming professional to thin them out with a razor. Ideally, the top should be one length or gradually increasing in length as you move toward the front(bag area). You don’t want a choppy or layered look, but you don’t want it to appear too tidy. Too perfectly groomed and it’ll appear as though you are trying too hard.
For a more natural look, we recommend Johnny B’s Street Cream for fine hair, and Johnny B’s Molding Paste for thick hair. If a more sculpted look with high hold is your taste, then Johnny B’s Fuddy is your best bet. All available at EITR Lounge. Run your fingers through your hair, working the product into the root. Pull straight up from the roots throughout and up and over in the front.
