Before a recomb in the bathroom at college, used the iron society #ThePompTest
I haven’t used TIS in a long time, but I do remember it having a lot less hold than I expected. Your pomp is a good height, and you held your sides nice and tight. But, I’d slick the sides more towards the back rather then down. Depending on your hairline, you may want to slight shift your part further to the side (not too much though). Because…I’m noticed that your pomp is semi-hollow and transparent. Whether or not it is a result of mid-day troubles, a lower part will give you more hair to pack into that pomp. Other than that, it ain’t too bad.
If you’re taking advantage of your hair’s natural waves, then keep it up. If my hair had a natural wave to it, you know I’d emphasize it. But if not, more product will help. Either way, you’ve done a good job preventing it from falling to the side.
