THE MODERN POMPADOUR

Age: 30s

Hair Length: Short

Expert Tip

This cut features sleek sides and texture on top, creating a chic, modern pompadour. A look that’s extra flattering for longer face shapes.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK

STEP 1

A Bang Lift
After washing with the Age Defy System, begin to blow-dry sections. Using a round bristle brush under your bangs will help add height and volume.

STEP 2

Sleek & Smooth
Keep the look sleek and smooth by brushing the sides of the hair back with a large flat brush.

STEP 3

Create Curls
With blown out hair, use a large barrel curling iron to create shape. Divide the bangs into 3 sections horizontally and curl for 8-10 seconds each. Create the curl close to the root to help give added volume.

STEP 4

Added Height
Backcomb the base for the pompadour’s signature dramatic lift. Smooth it over by lightly brushing over the top without brushing the volume out of the hair.
Keep the sides neat and sleek by combing Pantene ® Pro-V ® Maximum Hold Gel through hair with fingers.

The Final Look

This deceptively simple look makes a bold statement from every angle.
