The rap artist Macklemore has been getting quite a bit of attention lately, and so has his haircut. But what exactly is this haircut called? The Macklemore Haircut is a type of Pompadour. This hairstyle was first named after a mistress of King Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, who wore her hair in a similar fashion.
Many people including celebrities such as Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Pink, David Beckham, and of course Macklemore have been rocking this Pompadour hairdo recently. Will this trend last? My guess is yes.
