Modern Tapered Pomp - How To Cut

In this How to Cut & Style, Mike ‘Puglsy’ Conti takes us through a classic with a twist, the Modern Tapered Pomp.

How to Cut: Modern Tapered Pomp

Watch Uppercut Deluxe Barber Ambassador Mike Conti cut and style a Modern Tapered Pomp with Uppercut Deluxe Easy Hold.

Easy Hold is a water soluble, no shine product that provides light hold and natural finish, perfect for accentuating texture.

For those chasing a slicker look or for a little more control, Uppercut Deluxe Pomade and Uppercut Deluxe Monster Hold are a perfect fit.

Mike is owner of Pugsly’s Traditional Barbershop and Pugsly’s Sideshow, both in Kingston New York.

Influenced by a broad range of styles due to his exposure to many different subcultures and customers, Mike is one of the few barbers that can nail pretty much any style. Though, as you can see in this video, he comes into his own when cutting classic styles and is a master of the modern Taper.

The concept of a Classic Pompadour involves sweeping hair upwards from the face and worn high over the forehead. This is a typical men’s hairstyle from the 1950s and early 1960s, which was worn by celebrities such as Elvis Presley and James Dean. The pomp has remained a steadfast style for the guy who wants to look just as sharp as those vintage trendsetters.
