The pompadour is a classic barbershop cut that’s known for its versatility: it can add professionalism to your office antics, while also presenting a delightful suave to your evenings out.

Ask your barber for:
• A tapered cut with plenty of length of top to create the classic pomp look.

How to style at home:
• Apply The Bluebeards Revenge Matt Paste to wet hair as a pre-styling agent.
• Blow-dry your hair and use The Bluebeards Revenge Quiff Roller to mould your new style into shape making sure to create a side-parting.
• Finish by applying a small amount of The Bluebeards Revenge Pomade and comb through for the desired effect.

Scissor-Cut Contour:

With tapered cuts and fades being all the rage, a top-quality scissor-only cut will always stand out from the crowd, especially when it boasts this much texture.

Ask your barber to:
• Put the clippers down and use scissors to create a textured look that’s longer on top and shorter on the back and sides.

At home:
• Apply a sea salt spray to wet hair as a pre-styling agent.
• Blow-dry your hair and use The Bluebeards Revenge Quiff Roller to create volume and texture on top.
• Finish by scrunching The Bluebeards Revenge Matt Paste into your hair for a look that will last all day.

This cut sounds a little complicated, but in reality it’s a modern adaptation of the classic slick-back that provides a professional, classy style.

• Blow-dry the hair straight back towards the crown of the head using The Bluebeards Revenge Quiff Roller.
• Finish by running your fingers through your hair with The Bluebeards Revenge Matt Paste for added hold.
