Quiff


The quiff is a hairstyle that combines the 1950s pompadour hairstyle, the 1950s flattop, and sometimes a mohawk. The hairstyle was a staple in the British 'Teddy Boy' movement, but became popular again in Europe in the early 1980s and faced a resurgence in popularity during the '90s.

The etymology of the word "quiff" is uncertain, and several proposals have been suggested for its origin.

The modern-day quiff includes plenty of hair at the front of the top of the head, receding into shorter hair at the back with a trimmed back and sides.

The Japanese punch perm, a favorite among Yakuza (organized criminals) and Bōsōzoku (biker gangs), is similar to the quiff.



  • It may derive from the Hindi word quoff, meaning hair slicked back.
  • It may owe its origin to the French word coiffe, which can mean either a hairstyle or, going further back, the mail that knights wore over their heads and under their helmets.
  • Another possible candidate for its origin is the Dutch word kuif, meaning "crest." The Dutch name for Tintin, who sports a quiff, is Kuifje, which is the diminutive of the same word.
