pompadour with bun tutorial

Style variations:

  • Vary the position of the pompadour. If you’re more daring try pinning it slightly to the left or right.
  • Go big. If you’re wearing this ‘do to a big event, try loosely rolling the hair for a bigger pompadour or fluffing it out more. Just ensure that the pompadour and bun are proportional to one another by making the bun bigger by tucking it loosely.
  • Try a textured pompadour. Instead of combing out the hair, leave it curly for added interest. The difference between the smoothness of the ponytail and the curls of the pompadour should garner you a compliment or two.
  • Make your pompadour bangs instead. Instead of rolling the hair backwards, roll it forwards towards your face then bobby pin it in place. You can adjust how low it will hang on your face by how tight you roll your hair. To create more interest, try pinning the bangs to the side.

Changing up your everyday look doesn’t have to be difficult. All it takes is a little creativity and some trial and error.

How do you give yourself a mini makeover? Have you worn a pompadour before and if so what’s your method?
