Drawings of Pompadour Hairstyles - The Anime Bad Boy Staple
The pompadour is a distinctive look that has come in and out of style over the centuries. In the west, it’s considered genderless, with the Gibson Girl being a particularly notable fem variety. In the 1950s, however, it grew popular as a bad boy look.
While it’s definitely been out of style in the West for some time, Japanese gangs took a liking to the pompadour, and so it’s also a popular hairstyle for masculine characters in anime and manga.
Characters in Tokyo Revengers and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure are definitely known for this iconic look. What do you think of the others pictured below?
