Elvis Presley

Nothing says "bad-boy rocker sure to keep your daughter out past curfew" quite like this pompadour. Elvis Presley's popular greasy Southern trucker ducktail from his early career was named the most iconic hairstyle in 2007, and no doubt popularized the pocket-size plastic comb. There are, of course, variations of this look, and we'd be remiss if we didn't mention James Dean, Johnny Cash, Marlon Brandon, James Brown, Prince and David Bowie as just a few who "pomped" it up .
