Vintage inspirations have been particularly strong for 2013′s hair trends, for both men and women. The pompadour of the ’50s and ’60s – the hairstyle made famous by the King of Rock n’ Roll, Elvis Presley – is one of those that’s cropped up again, giving men a tough yet slick vintage vibe that’s relatively easy to create.
American Crew hair stylist Dean Tsopanis says he’s noticed an increase in men asking for the cut and style in recent months. In the steps below, he explains how to get a modern take on the once-again coveted look.
In this modern version the hair has a slight side part rather than being slicked entirely back. Keeping it a bit shorter and a little bit more effortless creates a pompadour that’s cool without being too time-warped.
