Men’s Hairstyle Trend for Fall: The Updated Pompadour
Posted Oct 13 2009 10:00pm
We’re often hearing about what the latest hairstyle for women will be with each season, which for obvious reasons, I pay attention to, but it had me wondering: What about hairstyles for men? To get that answer I went to Naz Kupelian, a 20 year veteran of the hair industry and owner of Naz Kupelian Salon in Lexington, Massachusetts. (Yes I am quite partial to New Englanders having grown up in Rhode Island!)
For men, Naz recommends updated versions of the sixties (think Elvis or Frank Sinatra), but with a lot of texture and movement to the hair. For this look, the sides are cut really short and close. The top is left long enough to comb back in a sweeping like manner. To complete this look, Naz suggests using hair wax such as Naz’s Shutter Wax by his own line “Naz Kupelian” or Wired by RUSK, a flexible styling crème for any hair type.
While at first I was thinking, really? A pompadour? I realize that we have indeed been seeing this coming back into play since the Spring. I can say that by watching my own son’s in what their requests have been for hairstyles. My 7 and 5 year old are very hair obessesed and one weekend came home from visiting with their father to surprise me with faux hawk’s. Within a month it had grown out a bit and on occasion they would flip their hair back just like a pompadour. So it appears, that no matter what your age–the updated pompadour is what is in trend for men this fall and winter season.
