How to create a quiff

Rock a playful quiff this weekend! Here’s how to get one.

Blow drying your hair upside down will give it more volume

You need some serious texture for this style, so start by applying a mousse to damp hair. My current fave is Lee Stafford Double Blow Volumizing Mousse, R94.99 (available at Clicks). Then tip your head upside down, and blast with a dryer.

Once dry, separate a section of hair from ear to ear, and pull forwards. Then backcomb the section from the back, working towards the front. Leave a thin bit right in the front that you can smooth over the top of your backcombing. Pin this bit down at the crown to create height.

With the rest of your hair, you can either pin it into a messy chignon a la Kate B or in a chic ponytail like Kate W. And if you have short hair, leave the rest loose.
