Step Three: Style the Pompadour

Go big, or go home is my pompadour motto, and Jenny McCarthy has the right idea here. I absolutely adore the daring height on her modern pompadour style.

The shape and texture of your pompadour style is really up to you. The sky is the limit, so to speak. The key is to achieving the right height and a solid foundation. Taking small section through the top section of your pompadour, Raphael suggests using a small round brush to hold the style together. Warm each section with a dryer, and allow each section to cool to stay in place. You could also use a curling iron or flat iron to create your shape if the round brush isn't your styling tool of choice. Creating more curl in your pompadour will give your a softer look, while straighter styling will give your a little more edge in your pump.

Don't be afraid to tease the hair at the base (try using a root lifting powder like this one) and use a comb to soften the look after teasing.
