The pompadour fade is a beautiful combination of two very popular haircuts – the pompadour and fade. While keeping the essential parts of the original style, the modern pompadour fade haircut offers many styling variations. For instance, guys can choose a high, mid or low fade on the sides; and then opt for a skin or razor fade. The taper is key to creating the high-contrast look.
Similarly, the men’s pompadour can be styled on top in different ways. For example, you can style a pompadour messy or neat, textured or slick, and combine it with a comb over or hard part. Ultimately, a faded pomp is versatile enough that you can transform your medium length or long hair into a number of other cool men’s hairstyles.
Check out these awesome pompadour fade haircuts for ideas on how to cut and style your next cut!
