HOW TO STYLE LONG HAIR

The quiff is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable men’s hairstyles of all time. The volume driven look remains in constant demand across barbershops and continues to be adapted by barbers while nodding to classic profiles of the past. In recent years we have seen the iconic benchmarks set by Elvis Presley and James Dean taken on by modern interpretations worn by the likes of Alex Turner and of course the king of men’s hairstyle influencers for over 20 years, David Beckham. Here the Murdock barbers break down how to achieve the perfect contemporary quiff, from the initial cut through to those all-important finishing touches.

STEP 1

Ask your barber for a short clipper cut on the back and sides, ideally at a grade two with a soft taper around the ears and neck for a clean, sharp finish to the edges. It's important not to go too high with the clippers, as we want to maintain some weight on the corners to blend with the length on top.

STEP 2

Ask your barber for a short clipper cut on the back and sides, ideally at a grade two with a soft taper around the ears and neck for a clean, sharp finish to the edges. It's important not to go too high with the clippers, as we want to maintain some weight on the corners to blend with the length on top.

BARBER TIP

Your hair tin of choice will provide a secure enough hold to last throughout the day, but you can
always boost this further with a subtle coating of hairspray. Do be wary of going too overboard
though in order to avoid an overly static finish. Let’s face it, nobody enjoys running their fingers
through a crispy or sticky head of hair
