Up your quiff game with these 5 on-trend variations…
Undoubtedly one of the most iconic haircuts for men, the quiff has been on the radar of style-conscious gents since the ’50s. Not only timeless, quiff hairstyles are also incredibly versatile and can come in many different forms– from sleek and sophisticated, to super casual.
So, if you’re considering refreshing your look by going for a modern version of this amazing cut and need some inspiration, here’s our rundown of the best quiff styles to try this year.
The quiff looks to boost your mane game
The classic quiff
To achieve this look, ask your stylist to keep plenty of length around your back and sides while maintaining a clean, sharp hairline. Make sure that the hair on top is longer and balanced near the crown area in order to connect in a way that looks natural.
While this look is pretty versatile with a length that can vary, you should always ensure that your back and sides are shorter than the top to get the clear contrast that is the main characteristic of this cut.
The undercut quiff
A contemporary take on the classic quiff, this version refreshes the traditional look with its short, undercut sides. Edgy and elegant, this cut is just perfect for style-conscious men.
Ask your stylist for shaved-down sides with plenty of length on top and style as you would with any other type of quiff.
Quiff tip: Try using the Lynx Adrenaline Super Hold Cream Gel, as this neat product will help you to craft sharp styles with precise definition, plus give your quiff some serious staying power.
The short quiff
If you’re looking for something a bit more on the casual side, then this clean-cut, hassle-free, short quiff could be the perfect solution for you.
To get the look, ask your stylist for a quiff with a much-shorter top (usually between 2-4 inches) teamed with a sharp fade on the sides. Whilst still ultra-stylish, this cut requires a lot less maintenance than other versions of the quiff.
The modern quiff
One of the more dramatic quiff hairstyles on our list, the modern quiff adds a touch of cool, contemporary personality to the classic cut. Ask your barber to create a sharp fade on the sides and back for a slick, stylish look.
Quiff tip: Remember that styling makes all the difference, so to get the perfect modern quiff, towel-dry your hair before rubbing a small amount of pomade (if you to add a bit of shine) or wax (try the VO5 Groomed Styling Wax) between your fingertips and running the product through your hair.
To finish, tease the front up and comb the rest back, then blowdry your quiff in place – and you’re good to go!
