Singer Janelle Monáe has nothing on you when you step out in this high and mighty version of the pompadour! Crafted by London-based hair pro Dionne Smith, this version of the curvy coif boasts major height up front balanced by sleek sides. Get the added volume by using extensions to “fill in” the signature pompadour profile. And remember: When it comes to this haute style, you’ve got to go big or go home. Are you up for this look?
