The quiff, (pronounced kwee-ff) is a 1950's fashion-forward rockabilly and masculine hairstyle. It's cut longer on the top, and combed upwards and backwards, all the while being held in place with firm-hold styling products.
We saw a brief comeback of the quiff in the 1980's, and most recently, edgy celebrities like Marion Cotlillard and Danni Minogue, have been spotted wearing this half-voluminous, half-sleek style around England again.
To find out how you can re-create the quiff at home with inexpensive products, follow these easy step-by-step instructions from Boots technical expert Ruth Fenwick after the jump!
- STEP 1: Start with a base. A good base is necessary for the illusion of volume and body. Try Boots Expert Thickening Shampoo, (£1.95) as it brings moisture and body to all hair types. When combined with Botanics Leave-in Volumising Conditioner, (£2.93) the hair is left full of vitality without being weighed down.
- STEP 2: Next, apply something like Aussie Volume and Conditioning Mousse, (£3.42) for extra lift. Then, wrap the central section of your hair around Boots Heated Rollers (£22.50) curling hair backwards away from the face.
- STEP 3: Once cooled (about 20 minutes), take out the curlers and mist a generous amount of Boots Essentials Natural Hold Unperfumed Hair Spray (£1.56) to keep your quiff looking perfect all night long!
