Ansel Elgort: Short Back And Sides With Small Quiff

Rated  3.0 3 Star

Actor Ansel Elgort’s short back and sides is the perfect minimalist, classic style that’s perfect for a busy young actor on the rise.

You might not have heard of him yet, but you soon will – he’s currently starring in big screen remake of West Side Story.

Why We Love It:

Ansel Elgort’s short back and sides is the result of him growing out a shaved head, which he debuted on social media in July this year.

Although we like his wavy hair with a bit more length than this, as it softens his features, MFH gets why this more practical look is his current go-to.

“When I’m working, I use a hair oil and cream to keep my haircut out of my face,” the 25-year-old told PEOPLE magazine.

“But without making it fluffy. I don’t want to look like a big, fluffy dog.”

With this classic, smooth, short haircut, we don’t think anyone will be mistaking Ansel for the family pet any time soon…


What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Ansel Elgort’s short back and sides with small quiff is all about cropping it all to the same length except the top layers, where it’s a couple of centimetres longer.

Get The Look

  • Ansel Elgort’s short back and sides is more versatile than you might realise.
  • You can add a subtle quiff like Ansel.
  • Or you can slick it down with a severe side parting.
  • You can also wear it brushed forward into a short fringe.
  • But make sure you keep it nourished by only washing it every other day. Use dry shampoo between washes to freshen it up.
  • Also make sure you use conditioner regularly.
  • For Ansel’s shine, use a deep conditioning treatment once a week or fortnight.
