There are two main types of pompadour:

The Classic:

This is the cut you should go for if you are looking for more refined gentleman than rebel rock god. The side of the hair shouldn’t be clipped too short. This longer hair on the side of your face will not only soften out the dramatic effect of the hairstyle itself, but it also goes incredibly well with a well kempt shorter beard. You hair should not be clipped higher than the crown of your head to ensure that you don’t end up with a more exaggerated, angular style. This look particularly suits people with longer faces as it maintains the balance of width with height, but it does look good on most face shapes. Celebrities who choose this classic look are Josh Hartnett, Bruno Mars and James Franco among many others.

Angular | Extreme | Modern:

The pompadour used to generally stick to the classic look, however recently hairstylists have been experimenting with more and more extreme versions of the look. The side and back hair will be shaved extremely short, usually a grade one, and if you are feeling particularly brave, then you should ask your hairdresser to shave far up your crown. This particular look combines the pompadour and the undercut and creates an extremely sexy, edgy feel. Not everyone should get this hairstyle but it particular suits people with rounder faces, as it adds height and detracts from the width of the face. These is an exceptionally sexy haircut and worn by many celebrities.
