Hi people. I'm very fussy about my hair and used to wear it in a side parted, college-boy style, but changed it to a more generic, slicked-back look after several years of being teased at school for my style. However, I've now moved onto the 'quiff' style, and my barber did my hair in that way for me a few months ago (see the photo on the 'quiff' page of Wikipedia). 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?

Thanks.

Hmm, looks like a tweaked pompadour to me. You could use that as a starting point.

) to recreating this style?

Thanks people.

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.

First off, I'm aware of the other meaning of the word (although it only seems to be so in the US, and I'm in Britain)
.

Secondly, I wasn't planning on doing the CUT myself - the cut is done, that picture on Wikipedia is actually me!! - I just cannot achieve the STYLE...

The cut is actually my regular cut, I just do not have the styling knowledge to achieve the actual shape.

Invest in a trip to the stylist and they will show you.

I thought it was a "coiff" but I just google imaged it and "quiff" comes up with quite a few more hits than "coiff"

I've heard "quiff" used as a derrogatory slur for gay dudes so I was sort of shocked until I actually opened and read this thread.

Got it! I would suggest a soft / medium hold gel, a decent hair dryer, and a round brush (or at least a vented brush). This is difficult to explain over the internet but... (I am going to try and find some links with a description) Make your hair about 70% dry with the dryer, then take the round brush, turn the hair around the brush, heat the hair slightly with the dryer (in the direction you want it to go - in this case towards the back), then roll the brush out of the hair. The goal is to heat the hair and then let it cool while rolling the brush out of the hair. As the hair cools it will hold the shape. Do this from the front to back (just push the hair on the sides with the brush in the direction you want it to lay) and you should be all set. When the hair is dried, run the fingers through the hair to acheive the desired result. Maybe put a little pomade on the fingers when running them through the hair. That would give a slightly "piecy" look. Easier said than done!
Also, try a small amount of spray shine to shine it up. If extra hold is needed, a finishing spray will hold it in place but you shouldn't really need it. Hopefully, your hair has some body to it as that will make the style easier to acheive and will hold in place longer.

You must've been thinking of the word 'coiffure', which means hairstyle....
