The perfect wavy quiff combo involves a lot of shine and a just a touch of matte.

Step 1: Wash your hair.

Wash hair with a thickening shampoo, like the Bed Head for Men Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and condition with the Bed Head for Men Charge Up Thickening Conditioner. This formula will help you to create a fuller base before creating your voluminous wavy quiff hairstyle.

Step 2: Blow-dry.

To get a super high quiff, blow-dry your hair upwards focusing on your roots to help with lift. Avoid blowing your ends bone straight, keep just enough texture to help create your waves.

Step 3: Apply some pomade.

Emulsify a fingertip amount of Axe Spiked Up Look: Styling Putty into your palms. Then, work it through your hair. If you need more, add some more but go easy as too much product will start to weigh your hair down.

The waves make the look.

Step 4: Sculpt.

Comb the pomade through with a fine-tooth comb to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair. Then, use your hands to craft structured waves to the lengths of your hair. If you want more texture, use your comb to tease the ends of your hair. Once you’re done, use a blowdryer with the concentration nozzle attached to set your look in place.
