Natural Hair Inspiration: The Pompadour!

December 16, 2012

Hey Curlies!

If you follow me on any social media at all, you know I L-O-V-E some pompadours! Why? *shrug* I guess for me, there’s just this retro flare and elegance to a well-coiffed pomp. And ya know what… the bigger and more obnoxious, the better! A protective style that looks good too?! Please & thanks!

Here are a few of my personal favorite takes on the pompadour:
