What do I tell my barber for a quiff?
To ask for a quiff, you’ll need to have grown out your hair so your barber has some length to work with. For a modern textured quiff, we recommend a high skin fade on the sides cut with clippers; although you can opt for a longer, tapered number 2 to avoid going too short.
How long does your hair need to be for a quiff?
Wait until your hair is at least three inches long at the top front before clipping it into a quiff. This ensures that you have enough length to work with. You don’t want to go too long, though, as extra length prevents the hair from sticking up too much at the top.

What is best hairstyle for my face shape?

Is a quiff an undercut?
In terms of the cut, the quiff hairstyle is basically like the undercut: longer on top and shorter on the sides and back. The real difference is the top of the hair, which is styled upward and combed slightly back for a textured, eye-catching look. Both are voluminous styles that sweep the hair back.
What’s the difference between a quiff and a pompadour?
