How To Get A Quiff

Given the versatile nature of the hairstyle, a quiff can work well with short or long hair. And fortunately, whether you want a long or short quiff, the process to getting the cut is mostly the same.

If you ask your barber for a quiff haircut, he’ll know exactly how to cut your hair. The only things you need to decide are how short you want the sides and hair on top. For example, modern quiffs allow for undercuts, fades, and classic tapers on the sides. We highly recommend a high skin fade or undercut for a high-contrast look, but longer hair also looks good.

Your next decision dictates how much hair you’ll have to work with on top. This length of hair will determine whether you have a short or long quiff to style and the types of hairstyles you’ll be able to have.

How To Style A Quiff

Styling a quiff comes down to getting volume with texture. Styling a quiff with short hair is easy, but you likely won’t get the same volume as you would with longer hair. Nevertheless, a short quiff is a trendy yet low-maintenance version of the hairstyle you’ll love.

To style a quiff, start by applying pomade, wax, or clay. Be sure to rub the hair product evenly by running your fingers through your hair from front to back. The ultimate goal is to brush your hair back and up for a natural, textured look.

By using pomade with a medium shine or matte finish and applying it while your hair is dry, guys can create a textured quiff.

Messy Quiff

The messy quiff requires essentially the same styling as the textured quiff hairstyle, but without the neatness created by a comb or brush. For the most natural messy quiff, run your hands through your hair in different directions.
