We love this article written by Lauren Salapatek from firstchair.com about the Modern Quiff! She says that today’s modern Quiff is a combination of the memorable “1950’ Elvis Pompadour and the 1980’s Duran Duran Mohawk.” We can’t help but love that visual – and agree! Salapatek continues to say that the hair style that developed into a major trend for both genders alike, and celebrities such as David Beckham, Alicia Keys and Rachel Wood are both rockin’ the cut and making it feminine, respectively.
Here’s the How to for Medium to Long Hair:
“TRY IT: First, if the hair really needs to be shampooed then proceed to shampoo and condition preferable with a body building formula to give the hair texture and a little less slip. This will help make the hair easier to work with. Apply a resin-free, root and texture boosting product that will help give the hair texture and body. Next dry the hair. Choose one of the following methods depending on the desired look. This style can work on any texture.
*Smooth Version: Blowdry the hair, lifting and creating volume and height at the root on the top of the head while styling.
*Crimped Version: Blowdry the hair smooth to prepare the hair for crimping. Again, lifting and creating volume and height at the root on the top of the head while smoothing the hair.
*Curly or Wavy Version: Allow curly or wavy hair to air-dry, diffuse-dry or dry under a hooded dryer. Let the natural curl or wave pattern set in and dry until completely dry.”
