The classic hairstyle, Pompadour, is not just seen in a variety of styles now-a-days but is seen carried off by 1 in every 3 men. This hairstyle can be recognized by defining the features such as the one which is shorter on the sides, the one with longer front hair; approximately 4 inches so that it lays back flat when it is combed back, and are upward & backward swept. It is worn high over forehead, just the way Elvis Presley did, and much before him, the mistress of King Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, after whom the name has been given to this very widely accepted hairstyle.
