Styling Feature: Pompadour
Currently, one of my go to hairstyle is the pompadour and I have been incorporating it into my daily styling regimen. This particular hairstyle gives me a more sophisticated and elegant look which I love. It is very important when choosing a style, to go for one that helps accentuates your facial features, and this does it for me 100%. I adore this style because I can get creative with ways of making it my own and just having fun with it. Pompadour hairstyle to me is an elegant style for both a day and night look. I always put a twist to this style by either french rolling the back of my hair, creating a bun, or wrapping up the back of my hair with a scarf. The pompadour dates back to the 18th century when it gained initial popularity among fashionable women such as the mistress of King Louis XV, Madame de pompadour, which the name pompadour originated from. A pompadour can be achieved by combing the sides of the hair back, while pulling the top of the hair forward and curling over itself. However, there are different ways as to how to achieve a pompadour, and pictures below will show how these styles can be worn giving you ideas on how you can make it your own.
