Look 4: Shiny Pompadour by MOSER

Shiny Pompadour tools
The pompadour is a continuously evolving look that will never go out of fashion. It was originally popular in the 50s and 60s amongst rock’n’roll stars like Elvis Presley, but is now enjoying a revival with modern men increasingly sporting this look once again. This men’s haircut featuring short sides and long top hair can be worn at various lengths. However, the classic “slicked-back” style is still especially popular amongst men these days, particularly when paired up with pomade to lend the hair a glorious shine. Consequently, the MOSER Artistic Team decided that this style definitely had to be included in the current “ROOTS” collection. Chris Mattick, lead educator of the MOSER Artistic Team, interpreted the look in a modern, stylish form while also providing the opportunity for it to be worn more casually. He used the latest MOSER appliance to create the haircut: KUNO, the innovative powerhouse which provides super-precise cuts. With the new, cool PREMIUM MAGNET ATTACHMENT COMBS and both blade sets included in the scope of delivery, he was able to create the perfect basis for transitions in the side areas and beard in the blink of an eye. In addition, the CHROMINI PRO 2 with a new, ultra-close U-BLADE was also used, along with the MOBILE SHAVER and the VENTUS PRO hairdryer.

“The KUNO is in a league of its own. Its precision and performance are simply excellent. This appliance is an irrepressible powerhouse, fits perfectly in the hand and is so easy to use!” Chris Mattick, lead educator of the MOSER Artistic Team
