Statement Pompadour.

Sunday, September 29, 2013

For this Style Diary, I really wanted to do an edgy editorial look for a night out. I have always loved the look of pompadours and have incorporated them in some of my past hair styles (Here are just a few of my past pompadour styles). But until now I've never rocked a statement pompadour - you know, one that is big enough to turn heads when you walk into a room and make a major statement a la Janelle Monae style. I wanted the finished style to have interesting shapes when viewed from all angles. But because I free-styled it - it is the kind of style that doesn't turn out exactly the same way each time you recreate it. For the completed look, I wanted to mix my statement hair with an outfit that incorporated the ever-classic, ever-cool graphic black & white monochrome trend. And what black and white look is complete without the pop of a red lip? :)
