If you're into your retro styles then the Elvis modern is perfect for you. It's a new take on the classic  quiff style that Elvis was known for.

A modern classic

Elvis' dramatic quiff hairstyle was a signature part of his look and it still retains its iconic status today. The Elvis modern takes the classic style and brings it right into the here and now. The result? A striking 'do that is both old-school and on-trend. 

To show off your Elvis Modern 'do in all of its glory, you will need hair that's short on the sides and long on top. The longer the top section is, the more volume you can get out of the quiff!

Once you've got your cut figured out then you're ready to style. Simply follow the easy tutorial below and you'll have rock 'n' roll hair in no time at all!

Get the look

Step one

Apply a small amount of styling gel to your fingertips and rub your hands together for a few seconds to warm the product up.

Step two

Take a larger amount of styling putty and rub it between your palms. Work it through the sides and top of your hair, taking care to avoid the front section of your hair.

Step three

Comb the front section of hair up and back, sculpting the hair into position, using a blow dryer to add extra movement.

Step four

Use the comb to push the hair upwards into an instantly-recognizable Elvis-style quiff!

So there you have it, one old-school retro hairstyle, which works for formal and casual scenarios alike. Now it's time for some serious hip swinging and air guitar!
