There are many variations of quiffs, so you can find one that fits your personality and style. You can rock a quiff in a casual setting or dress it up for a more formal occasion.
If you’re thinking about trying out a quiff hairstyle, here are some tips to get started:
1. Choose the right hairstyle for your face shape and features
A classic quiff is best suited for oval or round faces with robust features like a broad forehead or angular jawline. For softer features, try a side part or high fade haircut instead.
2. Pick the right hair length
If you have a round face or a receding hairline, stick to medium-length quiff hairstyles. If you want to add volume and height to your look, choose long haircuts with a side part or high fade for a retro vibe.
3. Pick a grunge-inspired look
If you want to channel the Britpop era, try pairing your quiff with a round-rimmed or square-rimmed eyeglass frame.
4. Add texture and dimension
For a more textured look, try adding a beard or moustache. If you want to keep your beard long and full, try pairing it with a quiff hairstyle.

Here are four tips for getting the perfect crew cut:
1. Choose a style that flatters your face shape
A crew cut is versatile enough to work with most face shapes, but if you have a round or angular face, go for something shorter on the sides and longer on top.

The mohawk hairstyle is characterised by long, thin strands of hair that are pulled back into a tight knot at the nape of the neck.

You can rock it conservatively or go for something a little more daring. If you have medium-length hair, go for short sides and an extended top cut.
If you have longer hair, keep the sides shorter and add some layers on top to create more volume.
Start with a high-maintenance style like the one shown below. This look is perfect if you want to show off your features and have tons of volume on top.
For a more modern take on an skinfade, try shaving off all your hair above your ears and then wearing it in a messy bun or ponytail. This style is stylish and versatile – perfect if you want to create an edge without going crazy with the volume.
