Robin James: 3 Back And Sides With Textured Quiff

4.0 4 Star

The contrast between the sides and the top makes this quiff look huge! It’s all about the volume and the texture.

MFH says

A sharp 3 back and sides with loads of length and volume on top. I really love the versatility of this style.

I can go big and messy, or slick it back to be neat and refined.

  • Ask for a low placement 3 back and sides, with a scissor cut on top.
  • Your barber will smooth the sides working a higher clipper grade down to the 3.
  • They should use scissor over comb to really finesse.
  • Your barber should point-cut into the hair on top to really up the texture.
  • The neckline should be a tight taper.
  • Use your usual hair pre-styler (I use thickening) to give your hair a boost.
  • Top tip: For huge volume, use a mousse.
  • If your hair is already thick, spritz a little sea salt spray into the lengths of your hair.
  • Use a hair dryer to scrunch and dry – working the texture in.
  • Sprinkle a little hair powder into the roots of your hair and work through the length.
  • Finish with styling and defining with a matte clay.
