Hey, it's Pombadour time!






Pompadour refers to a hairstyle which is named for Madame de Pompadour (1721–1764), mistress of King Louis XV.[1] Although there are numerous variations of the style for both women and men, the basic concept is hair swept upwards from the face and worn high over the forehead, and sometimes upswept around the sides and back as well.

After its initial popularity among fashionable women in the 18th century, the style was revived as part of the Gibson Girl look in the 1890s and continued to be in vogue until World War I. The style was in vogue for women once again in the 1940s. The men's version, as worn by early country and rock and roll stars such as Elvis Presley, was popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Variations of the pompadour style continue to be worn by men and women in the 21st century.
