High Pompadour by Jim Shaw

Step 1
The first step to creating this look is to create that low side parting. The best way to do this is when the hair is damp and by using a comb to create the side parting, starting from the natural arch of the eyebrow.
Step 2
The next step is to cut the hair scissor over comb and close to the head following the hairline for a precise yet soft finish. The key to this look was keeping the length on the top but also ensuring the finished look appeared disconnected.
Step 3
After the cut, the next step was to add lots of texture to the hair, which I created by combining my cutting techniques. Adding in longer layers is a great way to add texture to the hair whilst maintaining length.
Step 4
Next, a hairdryer can be used with a barrel brush to lift the hair and to blow-dry the hair over to the side to really showcase that statement side parting and to give the hair volume and lift.
Step 5
The key to this look is lots of texture, therefore to finish, using texturising products is key. For this look, I used American Crew Boost Powder for maximum lift and then finished with the American Crew Alternator Finishing Spray to give the hair a flexible style with control and height.
