The Pompadour’s origins are pretty epic. This hairstyle has been around for centuries!

The Pompadour is basically a raised slick back. Your hair is combed upwards and then slicked back. This is one of the most popular hairstyles for men in 2021 and its a perfect style for Indian men.

Although the pompadour is a good look, it’s pretty hard to maintain and is a hairstyle that should be restricted for only major events.

Why it’s hard to maintain is because all the hair should stay in one place and under Indian weather it can go wary.

Also, the pompadour style suits straight hair and not so much for wavy and curly hair. There is a slick back wavy style that will suit wavy haired guys better.
