What else can we tell you?

Did you know the original pomade of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries consisted mainly of bear fat or lard? However Lanolin, beeswax, and petroleum jelly are more common ingredients in the manufacture of modern pomades.

Stiffening properties of pomades make sculptured hairstyles such as the pompadour possible. The pompadour itself is experiencing a surge in popularity and celebrities from David Beckham to Zac Efron have shown how dapper this style is. The basic concept is having a large volume of hair swept upwards from the face and worn high over the forehead, and sometimes upswept around the sides and back as well.
