To achieve a great Messy Quiff that’s easy to recreate at home, ask your barber to use thinning scissors to take volume from the top if necessary. They should use also use a scissors-over-comb technique, and the front section of the hair should be kept slightly longer.

Even though it’s a Messy Quiff, the sides should be short and tidy.

About the Messy Quiff

The quiff is a combination of the 1950s pomp, and the 50s flat top styles, with an occasional reference to the mohawk. A quiff can be as tidy or as messy as you like, depending on the look you would like to achieve. Use our Matt Clay to add the desired amount of texture to your style. Take some time to play around with this look until you have a messy quiff that you’re happy to wear on a daily basis. It will look as though you just left the barber’s chair.
