High Pompadour Hairstyle


The High Pompadour is renowned for its gravity defying hair feats and it was very popular during the 1940’s. Backcombing the hair will create instant fullness as well as base for having large hairstyles like this one. This hairstyle can be decorated with additional accessories such as flowers and finger-curled ringlets. There are many celebrities including Kesha, Paula Patton and others who are seen with this hairstyle very often. It is very simple way of styling this hair, but you must make sure that you have a lengthy hair to create height on top of the head.

To create this hairstyle, start your styling with a day old hair as a newly washed hair will have problems in creating this style. Then brush the hair down to remove the tangles and separate the bangs that will be raised. Next comb back the puffed up part of the hair and separate the section that will be pulled back out of the ponytail. Make a hairline between the front hair that has been pulled out and take one inch section of the hair to comb it back with a fine-toothed comb. Use hairpin to keep the swoop in place and angle it toward the scalp. The front of the hair will have a bump of the puffed up hair, which will become the pompadour. At last use an elastic band to hold the ponytail and then mist the hair with a medium-hold finishing spray.
