Chet Baker

The ultimate quiff, Chet Baker wore it well. kept short and neat around the back and sides, with enough length on top to give the right hight to the quiff.

How To Look After It

Use a huge amount of moulding cream and defining gel to keep the quiff sharp, slicked and defined.

How To Ask For It

Ask for your hair to be cut very short and close around the back and sides, left longer on top but chopped into.

Who It Suits

It’s a cut that requires a good, thick head of hair. It’s a young look, but one which can work on anyone from a biker to a banker – as long as it’s worn with confidence. Lean, angular or rugged faces tend to suit a quiff best.

Why It Works

Why it works: Chet Baker’s flawless quiff – cut short into the sides, but impeccably groomed on top – defined his rugged face to create the ultimate greaser look.
