Want to try a new, daring and on-trend hairstyle this winter? How about the pompadour? Raphael Reboh of Femme Coiffure Hair Spa in Miami Beach — who is responsible for taming the tresses of Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Claudia Schiffer and Chrissy Teigen — says the pompadour is the perfect classic look for women who want to pull their hair away from their face, but still want to be edgy and fun; however, it is not an easy style to pull off for the faint of heart.
To date, the resurgence of the pompadour has caused quite an uproar in celebrity and hair news. Are we ready for this trend to reignite? Many women can achieve this style in a simplistic way. For example, if you have an edgy persona (think Miley Cyrus and PINK), go for a textured type by using hair putty and mold to shape the pompadour.
If you have a soft, elegance to your personality, channel Janelle Monae‘s attitude — her classic pompadour is softly styled, works with her natural texture and can be embellished with a few demure hair accessories.
Here are 4 key tips to keep in mind if you are ready to rock a pompadour from Raphael Reboh:
1) The haircut is key! Cut the hair in a way that shapes your particular face shape.
2) Pull everything back and leave the front as is. Create a twist and hold with 2 pins — one on top and one on bottom. Tease the top and comb in to the twist.
3) Use a small round brush to hold the style together. Warm it with a dryer, doing a few pieces at a time.
4) The most important part of creating a pompadour look is the product you use. You need to dry the hair well and use a matte paste with no shine that will keep it in place.
