Take your quiff game to the next level. 

Ah, the quiff. This much-loved men’s hairstyle is favoured by many a dapper gent (David Beckham, David Gandy and George Clooney, to name just a few). And we can’t say we’re surprised, because not only is this ‘do super versatile, it’s also quite low-maintenance when it comes to styling. Still need convincing? Ahead, we’ve put together a quick and easy guide to help you rock this look and take your quiff to super cool new heights.

Styling the quiff: An easy men’s hairstyle how-to



Prep your hair.

Start by making sure your hair is ready for styling by washing it with the TIGI Bed Head For Men Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and ConditionerThis will help to cleanse your hair and scalp, while helping to make it appear thicker and fuller, too.



Use styling product.

Once, your hair is clean and almost dry, it’s time to apply your styling product. Grab your pot of VO5 Extreme Style Groomed Gel Wax and scoop out a small amount of product (we suggest roughly the size of your fingertip).



Work the product into your hair.

No matter how thick or long your hair is, remember to only take a small amount of wax to start with. Why, you may ask? Well, it’s because it’s easier to add more product into your hair than it is to remove it (i.e. washing your hair and starting again)!

So, once you’ve got the right amount of product, warm the wax between your palms, coating them evenly. Then, rake your hands through your mane, gently working the gel wax into your hair.


Final look.

Now you’ve applied your hair product, you’re ready to start styling your quiff. If you’re looking to exude cool, contemporary vibes, then try the modern brush-up on for size. This versatile ‘do perfectly tows the line between casually groomed and modern sophistication. Simply grab a natural bristle hair brush or styling comb and work your hair upwards and backwards. You can make sure you don’t have any annoying flyaways by slicking down any stray hairs with a tiny bit more product. And that’s all there is to it!

Editor’s tip: To create a hairstyle of great height and fullness, use a hair dryer along with a vent brush to create volume and extra lift. That’s what the quiff is all about, after all!
