You might have worn one without even realising: the quiff has been a must-have look since the 1950s for many reasons ... Read on to find out why!
Like the undercut, this look is worked by using two different lengths, revealing short sides and hair kept off the nape, combined with a voluminous mass of hair on top. The front section must be pretty long to make a banana rock quiff even Elvis Presley would envy.
Good news! This quiff haircut suits everyone with its many variations. Retro to contemporary, it is up to you to choose your style depending on your desired look, your face shape and the nature of your hair. With the more classic version, the hair at the nape is shorter than the sides allowing you to pad out a long face, hide sticky-out ears and add a touch of lightness to thick hair. Alternatively, the most modern version of the quiff cut is ideal for elongating round faces and detracting from a lack of depth in your hair with its all-over short fade cut contrasting with the XXL front section.
The longer your front section is, the longer it will take to style! As a result, people who find styling hard should refrain from going ultra-long at the front. Styling takes skill to form a beautiful rockabilly quiff. A great technique? Apply a sculpting paste to wrung-out hair, then style your locks using a brush and blow-dryer to create extra volume. Finally, simply roll the tip of your front section to form a supple banana quiff shape. With these tips, you can say hello to a chic bad boy style in no time!
