This haircut practically glows with good taste, in addition to being a universal choice for men of all tastes.
Furthermore, it is a delightfully versatile hairstyle that can be adapted for any type of hair.
If you want to step up your style game, find out the many ways in which you can nail a quiff below!
1. Short Quiff Haircut
Want a military approach to your new haircut? You can go for a short quiff. Although you won’t see a lot of quiff hairstyles with significantly long hair, you won’t find many super short cuts either.
Nevertheless, a short quiff results in a neat haircut that’s easy to upkeep.
2. Side Tossed Quiff
If your aim is to get an effortless look on a daily basis, we have a few quiff tips for you. Firstly, allow your hair to grow a bit longer so you can style it with ease.
After that, simply toss your locks to the side, optionally with some hair product to maintain the shape.
3. Messy Quiff Undercut
Undercuts are a tried-and-tested method for edgy hairstyles for men. From where we stand, no matter what main hairstyle you have, an undercut instantly makes it cooler.
The same goes for quiffs, which go amazingly well with sleek undercuts.
4. Long Top Quiff
To present the other end of the spectrum, here is how your quiff haircut would look with longer hair.
We fully support this hairstyle from an aesthetic viewpoint, but we’re well aware that it requires more time than the majority of quiffs.
5. Disheveled Quiff
If you’re ever in doubt about your new look or style choice of the day, always go for messy.
The disheveled quiff hairstyle is one of the top trending at the moment for the attitude and confidence it naturally comes with.
6. Layered Quiff Haircut
You can cut down on major styling time if you incorporate one specific detail into your new haircut.
If you’re big on hairstyles, make this your mantra – layers. By getting a layered haircut, you will benefit from a hairstyle that basically settles in on its own.
7. Brushed Up Hairstyle with Fade
We sadly have to admit that spikey hairstyles will probably remain a trend of the past for some time, but we do have a present-day alternative.
Instead of completely spiking your hair with a staggering amount of product, opt for a brushed up style.
8. Long Asymmetrical Quiff with Sculpted Fade
There’s nothing sleeker than this quiff here. Look at that ginger hair and mustache combo. The most impressive part here is the sculpted fade. Really, really cool.
9. Wavy Quiff Haircut
If you have wavy hair, you will enjoy a handsome quiff haircut without the struggle that heavy maintenance comes with.
Thanks to your easygoing texture, you just have to get the right haircut for everything to naturally fall into place.
10. High and Tight Quiff
It’s no surprise that high and tight haircuts are increasingly gaining popularity among men. You have to admit that it’s a tasteful haircut that flatters almost all face shapes.
Pair it with a quiff hairstyle and you will have an appealing look indeed.

If you’re all about a smooth style, get a quiff haircut that reflects your tastes.
As long as your hair is fairly thick and straight, you shouldn’t have any problems sporting this casual quiff haircut. It works for all men, from students to office workers and more.
12. Brushed Angles Hairstyle
Take your quiff styling to a whole new level by brushing your hair in different angles. One of the most popular ways to do so is by brushing the top upwards and then gently to the side.
Afterward, you should take the sides and brush them towards the front, like in the photo above.
13. Rockabilly Hairstyle
It’s no secret that trends come, go and come back, nor is it that genuine style is eternal.
Put these two facts side by side and you’ll easily understand why styles like 50s’ and 60s’ rockabilly will always be a classy option for men, from clothing to grooming, and others.
14. Silver Short Messy Quiff for Receding Hairlines
Whoever said that you have to wear your natural hair color? Exploring color options isn’t just for the ladies; we encourage guys to experiment in this area too.
Therefore, you should take some time to think about any tones that would better suit your personality, like the ever trending silver.
15. Front Curled Quiff Haircut
Just like the pompadour, the quiff haircut also has an adaptation with a front curl. However, as opposed to the uber-cool pomp, a front curled quiff tends to lean more to the side rather than out and in front of your forehead.
16. Retro Side Swept Ginger Haircut
For a gentleman look, you often need to seek inspiration far back in the past. Rewind a few decades and you’ll notice the finger waves trend that was everywhere in the 20s’ and 30s‘.
You can adopt this style, even more easily if your hair is already wavy.

It’s cool, wild, reckless and everything else a young guy could want. Think of it as a mirror for a teen’s typical personality.

We’re back with inspiration from the past with the iconic greaser hairstyle. This was the ultimate bad boy look of the 1950s that still stands as a statement haircut to this day.
Together with pompadours, quiffs are the top haircuts for this timeless style.
19. Curly Quiff
Naturally curly hair will be far easier to style if you have a quiff haircut. You should keep your strands a little longer and subtly sweep them towards the front.
Add a few layers in the haircut and you shouldn’t have any problems whatsoever.
20. Comb Over Hairstyle
Men with short or medium-length hair should definitely keep a comb over hairstyle in mind for their quiff haircut.
It’s as dapper as you can get, not to mention that it’s an easy style that any guy can pull off. Come on, just look at Ryan Gosling.
21. Faux Hawk Quiff
Another cool fact about the quiff haircut is that it can be the foundation for a considerable amount of hairstyle fusions. Just one example is the faux hawk, a top trending hairstyle that blends perfectly with a quiff base.
22. Quiff Haircut with Hard Part
