The beard plus slick look has caught on like wild fire. While it’s an excellent look that works for everyone and even curly hair, it’s touch to stand out from the crowd. If you’re looking for something different, it’s time to mine vintage hairstyles for more men’s hair ideas. Here’s an oldy but goody – the quiff.
By definition, the quiff is a combination of the 1950s era pompadour and flat top with a touch of the mohawk thrown in there too. Think James Dean, Morissey, and even Tin Tin. In recent years, the look has made a slight comeback, as seen on Macklemore.
The basic idea behind the quiff is a tall hairstyle worn with a point at the front and combed tight around the sides and back. There is plenty of variation that with this cool men’s hairstyle so the key is to make it your own. Some ways to do so is wear hair extra tall, very pointy, or super slick.
This unique look combs thick and fine hair straight up and finishing in a peak that curl over in a wave. Hair at the sides is pulled straight back with a matte product. Get the look for fine and thick hair with a clay product like Bedhead Matte Separation Wax, Jonathan Product Dirt Texturizing Paste, or Sebastian Microweb Fiber.
