Pictures of Celebrities Wearing Pompadours

Trend Alert: Pretty Pompadours


Pompadours were popularized in the 1950s by a hip-wiggling Elvis, and the voluminous style is making a bit of a comeback as of late. Just yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival, Kate Beckinsale was spotted wearing this full-on-top look, while Maggie Gyllenhaal donned a tame version at the 2010 Costume Institute Gala. And we can't forget singer Janelle Monae, who has made the high-to-the-sky pomp her signature style. To get the look at home, apply a volumizing product to damp hair, blow-dry using a round brush, and place the hair in rollers to create even more volume. Remove the rollers, tease the hair high, shape into the desired style, and secure with bobby pins. For a finishing touch, rake your fingers through the front to create lots of lift.

I don't like this hair- "do" for celebs or the rest of us. Just looks weird and unattractive on anyone to me - the only way it is "alright" is for a performance look for an artist onstage.
