How to Style Messy Pompadour Hairstyle with Undercut Haircut?
Hey guys,
I have a disconnected undercut with a 1-2 fade and about 4-5 inches of thick hair on top. I have trouble getting volume on my hair when I comb it back, but then again I do not use a hair dryer or a circular brush.

I really like the look of the messy pompadour with a lot of volume and the little "clumps" that layer on top of each other, but whenever I try to style that, I end up with something dreadful.

What kind of products do I need to be using, first of all? I want some good hold that also does not look like I have tons of product in my hair.

Also, what are the techniques and methods that I need to do in order to get the perfect messy pomp? I really like this look and hopefully you guys can help me figure it out.

Thanks so much and have a great day!Big Grin

If you search "messy pompadour" on google images, the first picture is exactly what I am looking for.

I have similar hair length, however I have very thick straight hair naturally. I prefer messy/wild hair over slick generally, and I like the messy pomp too. For best results I recommend getting a round of "styling clay" as opposed to pomade gel or glue. I like the Aveda brand the best for styling clay so far, but the AXE "Messy" styling clay really isn't bad... American Crew will work too, but I'd probably pick the AXE one over it now.

Make sure your hair is clean and very dry before styling. I rub my hair with a towel after putting the product in. If your hair is straight, I would try not even using a brush or comb - use your fingers as a comb, while giving a gentle pull upwards as you "comb" out towards the back.

I hope this is what you were looking for - I get compliments on my hair all the time and I don't even go to a stylist or spend more than $20 on a cut.
