The Look: “I immediately think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys when I see a pompadour,” says Jessica Rizzo, hairstylist at Paul Labrecque salon in N.Y.C., who suggests keeping the look textured and modern like Hilary Duff’s. To flatter a heart-shaped or square face, pin the raised section close to your forehead. “It offsets a horizontal face shape,” she says. Also rounded faces work well with this hair because it elongates their face to appear slimmer!
The Trick: Prep damp hair with volumizing spray, then place Velcro rollers going back along the mohawk part of your head. Remove rollers, tease along the roots and set into place with bobby pins. Finish by stroking shea-butter pomade along the top to eliminate flyaways and frizz. “When you brush over a teased section, you lose a little texture. This makes it modern. It’s a really nice way to make it look shiny and sleek without being overly perfect.”
