The best bet is to find something you like and bring it up with your barber; have a pic on your phone, too.

Elvis Presley rocked the pompadour in the 1950s, and guys like Bruno Mars and David Beckham wear it today. It’s a style designed to coordinate with the individual shape of a man’s face. It is cut high into the curve of the head and leaves more length on top.

Mars — and now, unfortunately, Justin Bieber — is famous for this hairstyle. It is perfect for a casual look but can also be worn at work.

The result is a sporty tapering effect that is simple to maintain. As seen on Shemar Moore, it is a popular style in the African American community.
