Depending on the wearers hair type a spot of gel or grease may be in order. Very stylish & manly. If done properly.
The quiff is often worn as a variation or 'evolution' on the very simple (and very manly) crew cut, or with the (longer & back-combed) 'duck's arse' or DA hairstyle.
Called a 'banane' in French, for obvious reasons.

There's lots more, but has anyone seen the massive quiffs on those Japanese high-school rebel kids (often the heroes of 'shonen manga' (Japanese comics for boys))?? They kick ass!
