Few men’s hairstyles look just as magazine cover-worthy today as they did in the 1950s. Sure, the buzz cut was floating around then, and the slick side-parting’s been a mainstay for even longer, but the quiff? No men’s hairstyle is as steeped in style.

Sported by some of history’s most stylish men – from Marlon Brando then, to David Beckham today – the quiff started as a hybrid of the pompadour and 1950s flat top. Since then, it’s proven itself a versatile classic for men intent on making a statement up top, able to be adapted easily whether you’re gearing up for date night or delivering a client presentation.

Check out some of the best men’s quiff styles below, and for more on sculpting one – from the cut you need to the products to perfect your finish – take a look at our complete guide to the quiff.
