Here to stay, the pompadour is primped, preened and pomping up all over the place. With slicker than your average forefathers like Elvis and Danny Zuko, all you need is a girl on your arm and some grease for the up do to feel like ‘the man’. In the words of Vince Fontaine, “to look your best for the big contest, just be yourselves and have a ball. That’s what it’s all about, after all.”
