Summer Vacation grooming




Here are a few helpful hints on what to do before you go on your summer vacation

1)get that hair cut.

Not a short cut but just a clean up, get all the man grooming done.  The ears, neck, brows, and yes, the facial hair.

2)Don’t need to worry about packing full size styling products.

Ask your stylist for samples or if they sell travel sizes.  You don’t want your full size shampoo exploding all over your luggage, or worse that 3.2 oz of $26 pomade getting confiscated at security.   Makes me mad just thinking about it.

3)grow your beard out.

If your on a pleasure vacation grow that scruff, less stuff to pack.

4) get some man scaping done.

If done by your significant other or yourself, just get it done.  I suggest using a zero guard on the back and a 1 or 2 guard on the chest.

The Quiff – A Mans modern cut


The Quiff

A Mans modern cut

My client came in this week and said he’d been listening to Morrissey a lot lately give him a Quiff.  I laughed and and sent him out with a quite awesome looking wavy quiff. I thought through out the rest of my day where the hell did the word “Quiff” come from?

What is a hair Quiff?

In my search I found that Quiff comes from the word “coiffe” a french word meaning hairstyle.  So a modern day quiff is a mixture of a few different hairstyles mainly from the 40’s-50’s era.  Picture a flattop, and a pompadour morphed into one.  If your feeling funky add a slight mo hawk texturizing into the mix.  The sides are shorter most of the time buzzed and the the top goes short to long from back to front.  The longest piece of hair, the one closest to your forehead is the quiff. You’ve seen it on rebel heartthrobs like Elvis and James Dean.

To style: For straight hair, blowdry the front half of your hair straight up, and the back half forward.  style with TIGI “S” factor creamy molding wax.

For wavy hair, towel dry hair apply a small amount of TIGI “S” factor creamy molding wax distribute evenly.  Mold hair back with fingers or wide tooth comb, air dry.
