The pompadour is the perfect blend of sophisticated and edgy, and has graced the likes of Janelle Monae, Alicia Keys, and Rihanna’s beautiful tresses. Here’s 5 steps to styling this daring do!

1. First part a u-section in the front of your head. Use a clip or hair band to separate this area from the rest of your hair.

2. Next you want to use your favorite pomade or hair gel to lightly sweep over your edges. Pantene’s Texturizing Sculpting Wax as well as Organic Root Stimulator Edge Control work fine.

3. Brush your hair into a high ponytail using a soft or hard bristle brush.
