Pompadour Hairstyle Pictures and Ideas for Rockabilly Hair Look

Pompadour Hairstyle Pictures and Ideas for Rockabilly Hair Look
The 1950s and 1960s were indeed the decades of the Pompadour hairstyle. Thus, to pay tribute to this style, here's a big set of pictures of the Pompadour hairstyle.

Having said the above, this set of pictures isn't just "a set of pictures"; they're from the 2005 movie "Walk The Line". This movie features Joaquin Phoenix as country and rockabilly legend Johnny Cash, the latter who was known for sporting a Pompadour hairstyle most of the time. Ergo, in the movie, Joaquin Phoenix sports a Pompadour as he stars alongside Reese Witherspoon.

Back in those days, both rockabilly guys and young guys who listened to rock and roll would grease their hair with oil pomades that provided a high-shine and slicked look. These youngsters were known as greasers, and a myth arose about them styling their hair with their cars' engine oils. Of course, this wasn't true (as engine oil is toxic); instead, these youngsters used oil heavy pomades that left irradiated a lot of oily shine. The same greaser term was used in the UK to denominate youngsters who listened to rock and roll music, although in the UK the rock and roll culture was associated with motorbikes, while, in the US, it was associated with muscle cars.

It should be said, however, that the right amount of a good oil-based pomade will not give you a very greasy look (see the link above for 2 great oil pomades). Youngsters in the 1950s deliberately used very-generous amounts of oil-based pomades to really exude a greasy look and thus be identified by others and the common public as greasers! Smile

As you will see in the Pompadour hairstyle pictures of Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash. His hair hardly looked greasy and instead had a natural-shine look. Indeed, Joaquin Phoenix used a real oil-based pomade to style his Pompadour in the movie.

Due to the length of this pictures set, I've divided the set into 2 parts, so you will find the second set of pictures on the next post below it. If you have any questions about the Pompadour in general or Joaquin Phoenix's Pompadour, then feel free to ask them below.

More Pompadour inspiration pictures!
Here's the second part of this pictures set. I personally consider the Pompadour as one of the best hairstyles for men due to its aesthetics at a medium length and minimal need for hair products despite its crafted look!
