Celebrities Bring Back the Pompadour

The saying goes that when it comes to clothing and hairstyles, everything trendy eventually comes back into fashion. That's certainly true of the pompadour hairstyle, which, more than 250 years after it originally became popular, is having another moment. Jenny McCarthy was the latest star to rock the look as she walked the red carpet at the 2012 American Music Awards on Sunday, but she's far from the first to try out the trend, even in this decade. Celebrities such as One Direction's Zayn Malik, Rihanna, Ashlee Simpson, Alicia Keys, and Justin Bieber have all tried out the retro style that somehow manages to be totally modern. Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae regularly don the 'do, as does Pink, who caused a stir when she and Miley Cyrus both wore similar pompadour hairstyles for the 2012 MTV VMAs in September. So it's official: the pompadour is back! Again.
when a mistress of France's King Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, began sporting it. "From there, it has moved on to generation and generation and now every decade a few celebrities are always bringing the pompadour back and putting their own twist on its original style," celebrity hairstylist Jose Eber, whose clients have included Elizabeth Taylor, Cher, and Julia Roberts, tells omg!. In more modern times, it's a young Elvis Presley who was best known for his pompadour — so much so that in July Time magazine included the King's poufy coif on its list of the 10 most iconic hairstyles of all time.
