Trend Alert: Up and Away Hair

The pompadour may be making a comeback, but this voluminous style is not limited to just updo form. In fact, its close relative, a slicked-back pouffy coiffure, has also made lots of appearances on the red carpet as of late. Over the weekend at the Cannes Film Festival, Carey Mulligan styled her blond locks back into this up and away look as she snuggled up close to her boyfriend, while just a few weeks ago, Hayden Panettiere had heads turning after debuting this shorter, swept-away haircut. And let's not forget Kristen Stewart, who wore it punky-style at a screening for The Runaways. (For a similar look, check out this tutorial.) What say you on this take of the pompadour? Is it something you'd wear, or do you think it's best suited for the red carpet?
