Bobby Brazier: Cropped Curly Hair With Quiff

Bobby Brazier has changed up his look: the cheeky Eastenders chappy has lopped off his glorious curls in favour of this short haircut, with a little bit of length on top that he’s pushed up into a quiff.

All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

While MFH is mourning the loss of Bobby’s beautiful, tousled curls, clearly Mr Brazier, 20, felt it time to opt for something a little more grown up.

With all those early filming starts on Eastenders, he probably wanted a short hairstyle that would enable a bit more snooze time. Frankly, every second makes a difference if your alarm is set to shriek you awake at 4.30am. * shudders​*​

But after this interview The Face online it’s clear that we might be seeing a few more hairstyle iterations before the year is out.

“My hair’s versatile, you see – I don’t like to stick to a particular style,” he told the online magazine.

“Slick back, comb over, side parting, big curls, little curls. It really depends.”

He wasn’t always the smooth operator though, admitting that at school he had a “big, poofy mushroom for a while.”

Let that be a lesson to all you curly hair types out there: go to a good hairdresser who understands how to work with your hair and cut the weight out of it so that it grows out nicely. No ‘shroom necessary.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • The hair on the top of Bobby’s head is around 3-4 inches – this allows some natural waves and movement to come through for volume and texture.
  • Bobby’s hairstylist most likely used a point-cutting scissor technique to create a natural, less blunt finish.
  • The cut is tapered at the sides and back.
  • This can be achieved by using clippers with guards starting at around #4 and gradually going down to around #2.
  • This will need to be very carefully blended to avoid harsh lines.
  • To keep this cut looking sharp, you will need to get a trim every 4-6 weeks.

Get The Look

  • Try not to wash your hair more than 2-3 times a week and use curl friendly products to wash and condition when you do.
  • Towel dry the hair gently by patting it dry, not rubbing it, as that causes damage and frizz.
  • Apply a light-hold mousse or styling cream to damp hair to enhance the natural texture and provide some hold without making the hair stuff.
  • You can let it dry naturally, scrunching it a little to encourage natural movement.
  • Or spritz on some heat protector first, and blow dry it on medium heat, lifting it at the roots on top with your fingers.
  • Use your fingers to lift the fringe area into Bobby’s baby quiff.
  • Get a tiny bit of pomade and rub it between your hands first to warm it up.
  • Then use it to mould the quiff into the shape you want, and smooth down the hair at the sides of the head.
