  • I really like that style, but I’m not sure if I could pull it off. Do you know of any forums that are specifically geared toward men’s retro hair styles?

    • Your a poser! So, quit acting like a you need a pompadour. I have had one since I was just a little boy and don’t need some douche bag acting like it’s a style.

      • Just because you’ve had it since you were a kid, grandpa, doesn’t mean you’re the only one that gets to have it. Unless you’ve noticed, 50-60s hairstyles and clothes are coming back, so either leave room for us new ones or get lost.

  • Johnny's pomp is HOT. He used a "real deal" hair grease something like Dax, Murrays or Tres Flores to keep the style in place. The Pomp is a classic man's style.

  • Thats funny Dave. It is a style one I have been rocking for quite a few years and do encorage others to do so also. If that’s the style they lean towards but I guess there always has to be a douch bag putting people down thank you for filling that position.

  • I use Layrite Deluxe, love the water soluble. Helps a lot to shower the night prior and blow dry your hair cause it make the hair easier to lift and manage.
