Phil Dunster: Textured Quiff Hairstyle With Side Part

4.0 4 Star

Ted Lasso star Phil Dunster (he plays footballer Jamie Tartt) scores grooming goals with this short textured hairstyle and side part.

MFH says

Phil Dunster’s textured quiff hairstyle with side part is in a league of its own, with a slightly undone feel that adds modern edge to a classic.

The Ted Lasso actor – who plays AFC Richmond striker Jamie Tartt in the hit series – put his hair in the hands of celebrity groomer Lucy Halperin for this Apple TV+ event. She’s also styled A-listers including Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Andrew Garfield and Chris Hemsworth.

While Phil favours a short back and sides off the pitch, his on-screen character goes through a hair evolution on the show – from slicked-back styles and sharp quiffs to 90s-throwback curtains and a headband.

“We try to replicate a footballer each season – season one was [Cristiano] Ronaldo, season two was Jack Grealish,” Phil explained in an interview with Goggler, adding that Jamie’s hair in season three has a touch of David Beckham about it.

  • For Phil Dunster’s textured quiff hairstyle, ask your barber for tapered or short back and sides.
  • Let them know that you’d like the option to style your hair in a side part, so it can be cut with that in mind.
  • The shorter back and sides will be subtly blended with the longer hair on top of your head.
  • Phil’s hair looks to be at least a few inches on top, which gives room for styling and that side-swept quiff.
  • Your barber may build in layers and texture, leaving more bulk towards the front.
  • They’ll likely use scissor-cut techniques including scissor-over-comb and point-cutting to create shape and a softer finish.
  • Recreate Phil Dunster’s textured quiff hairstyle by using a comb to make a side part on towel-dried hair.
  • Work a few spritzes of volumising sea salt spray into your hair using your hands. Look for a product that protects against heat damage if you’re blow drying.
  • Keep the dryer moving so the heat isn’t concentrated in one area. Also opt for a low-to-medium heat setting to help swerve damage.
  • Use the dryer, your hands and a comb if needed to start shaping your top length, lifting it up and over to the side to build a volume-packed quiff at the front. Air drying? Just work with your hands and a comb.
  • Warm a pea-sized amount of high-hold, matte-finish styling product through your palms and between your fingers. Use your hands to finish building that quiff and textured, side-swept style.
  • Show your scalp some love to keep the skin nourished and support healthy hair growth, especially if you use styling products that can build up. The likes of a scalp exfoliant or treatment can help to keep yours in good shape.
