Are you trying to get a Quiff? Well, it’s understandable – since this is one of the most stylish hairstyles for men there is. This haircut has been around for a long time. But due to its versatility, it can be modified to fit almost any personality or occasion.
However, with numerous variations available, finding a Quiff haircut that expresses your flawless sense of style may not be easy. That’s why, to complement your look, you need to learn the basics of this haircut first. And so, here’s how to do a proper – yet simple – Quiff haircut variation:
1. Start by Knowing Your Hair Type
The first step to getting a basic Quiff is to know your hair type. On the plus side, this haircut works with any hair type. So, why is this important? Well, knowing your type allows you to choose the right products for your hair.
Here, I’m talking about pomades, clays, waxes, and so on. That’s because your hair type determines the amount of hold your Quiff will require. For thin hair, light to medium hold will do. However, if you’ve got thick, tough, untamable hair, you might need styling products with maximum hold.
2. Choose a Style/Have References
Step two – choose a variation of this hairstyle. Now, due to its popularity, the Quiff has numerous variations. Hence, there is always something for everyone. Ideally, you should go with a style that complements your face shape, hair type, and personality.
Note, if you have longer hair, you might need to cut it – yourself or at the barbershop. Why? Because, regardless of your chosen variation, most Quiffs have shorter hair on the sides and back, but longer hair on top.
3. Blow Dry and Comb Your Hair
If you want a high, voluminous Quiff then start by blow-drying your damp hair – from the front section that is. Moreover, to get the soft-edge finish usually attributed to this haircut, use a round comb to style. The combing movements should be upwards, while blow-drying.
But, if having more volume is not your style then skip the dryer and towel dry your locks.
4. Warm the Paste/Wax/Pomade
At this point, you’re ready to apply your favorite styling product. However, before we get to that, here’s a little secret most guys don’t know.
Appling a quality hair styling product isn’t just about scooping and rubbing on. The process is much more intricate than that. You don’t want to end up with dull, clumpy, or unevenly-styled locks, right?
If so, the right way to do this is to warm the product before rubbing it in. That way it becomes easier to work it into your strands; down to the roots. In doing so, your hair will be fully supported by the styling product and much easier to style.
5. Scrunch the Top
Lastly, if you want your Quiff to have an effortless texture, then apply the squeeze and scrunch technique. This involves squeezing and scrunching the top section to achieve a textured, carefree look. Meanwhile, guys who want a smoother take on the classic haircut should just use a comb to gently get the top into shape.
So, that’s everything you need to know about getting a simple Quiff. Remember, as you try to keep up with modern fashion trends, it’s also important to keep your hair looking fresh. That way, you’ll have a complete, pomp, and modern look at all times.
