Since the rock and roll era of the 1950s, barely a year has gone by where the quiff hair cut hasn’t been one of the biggest trends in men’s fashion. This enduring hairstyle is surprisingly simple for something so striking. All it involves is brushing the front of the hair upwards and back, away from the forehead. This is usually achieved using a little bit (or maybe even a lot) of product to enable height and make it stay in place. Considering the quiff is so simple and effortlessly cool, it’s hardly surprising that it has remained at the top of the style stakes for so many decades.
There is plenty of room to experiment with quiffs and they can look totally dashing on just about every type of man. With this in mind, you can rest assured that you’ll definitely find the ideal quiff hairstyle for you and there is no excuse not to try it out as your new look.
