I didn't get a chance to enquire as to how to do it, and my barber has since retired. I was wondering if anybody could give me any tips on creating the quiff style?
W... T... F...
First, I can't believe they call it a "quiff". The last I checked that was the name for something that happens when a woman... well... I guess that's another thread.
Were you thinking about doing the cut to yourself? If so, I would say forget it. You'll never get it even.
The cut is very
easy to do for any competent stylist. I would take some pics (at the risk of the stylist not knowing who Morrissey or Brian Setzer is) to a stylist that you trust and they can do this cut no problem. It's basically short on the sides, longer on the top, and slightly longer in the front.
If you go to a woman stylist, I wouldn't call it a quiff.
Edit: I would go to a stylist, not a barber.
