Pompadour Hair

You've probably heard of Pompadour hair. It's the pulled back, heightened bun-like style that has existed since the Louis XIV's favorite mistress, Madame de Pompadour. A similar style is seen here from the Miu Miu Fall 2009 collection.
Though not from the upper class, Madame de Pompadour made her way into the King's heart with her wit and charm. The rest of the French population couldn't help but love her style and fashion sense. Even if they didn't like her, they emulated her remarkable style.

Versions of the classic Pompadour have been popping up on the runways; Buns twisted, teased and pulled off the face.
Seen here at 3.1 Philip Lim Spring 2009.

Elie Saab's Fall 2009 added a little more femme fatale to the hair style.

After Madame de Pompadour set the style stage in the Rococo period, Marie Antoinette took over as the Queen of Fashion during the Neoclassical era. The hair started taking even more height as the fashions grew in size.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 channelled Marie Antoinette with an 80s flair.

Large hair to match the large skirt of 1779.
