Sexy Slicked Back
The pompadour was popular among the rockabillies of the 50s, and stuck in posterity by the King himself, Elvis Presley. The hair is swept into a wave up front, and then back, creating remarkable height on top. Black hair often pops, as the style is dependent on styling products that lend shine and luster. Medium, straight, hair works best, as it gives maximum height with the most control. Short hair at the back and sides are just neatened out of the way, showing the ears.
