How to Cut: The sides should be buzzed with any razor length––we recommend a #2 or #3 for short pompadours and a #4 or #5 for longer styles. The top of your hair should be at least 3 inches, though it can be longer. Your hair should also be tapered so it fades into your neck.
Classic Pompadour Haircut – While it’s somewhat of an ancient haircut, this is still one that looks and feels great on. The classic pompadour haircut helps gives the impression you are a gentleman rather than just a mere rebel. If you want to rock facial hair, the shorter hair on the side of this style helps reduce the dramatic effects of the cut so it’s actually complimented by some facial shade.
For shorter spikes, simply grab a small portion of your hair and style it upward. For longer spikes, you’ll need to approach your hair in sections, tying up your hair with ties or clips. Work on one section at a time, starting from the root and styling upward.
How to Style: Styling the pompadour is a 3-step process. First, apply a few generous scoops of pomade to damp hair. Comb your hair backward (all the way down your neck), evenly distributing the pomade. Second, if you want a part, now is the time to make one. Third, use the comb to lift the hair at the front of the head. Lift it upward and backward using a rolling motion. For more volume, you can blow dry your pompadour upward.
