Short Textured Blowout with Tapered Sides
A blowout perfectly suited for those with thick or weighty hair. A casual run-through of the fingers with some product should do the trick, tapered sides are essential.

While volume is necessary for this classic combed back style, it’s a much more sedate take on a pompadour-style haircut and a fairly simple hairstyle to execute.
Speaking of, the modern pompadour takes its inspiration from the classic Elvis-esque cuts of the 1950s, but with the opportunity for both texture and the use of softer products.
