The quiff today is just as influential as it were back in the 1950s with actors such as Austin continuing to make the look their trademark.

In addition to this we also saw him styling the quiff more throughout 2022 in preparation for the screen play Elvis!

The style not only compliments him but we also get to see his hair length and texture which is thick wavy hair, ranging between 2A and 2B.

Black Quiff

In preparation for his biggest movie role to date we saw Austin having his hair dyed black and placed in a quiff to really channel his inner Elvis.

Now we all know Elvis wore a magnitude of hairstyles, however his signature look was the classic pompadour which was known as the Ducktail or Jelly Roll.

In order for the actor to have a congruent image with the person their portraying the hair must be in alignment, so that means the natural born brunette can be seen in his dark black locks!

Disclaimer: Applying any sort of chemical to your hair is a very risky job as this can lead to breakage or thinning if not done correctly, therefore we always recommend you use a professional.

Messy Hair

If there’s one thing were certain on its Austin making a public appearance in his messy hair look in which he gets to subtly show off his thick wavy hair.

Some strands across his forehead whilst some are to the sides, this is a look which we class as the signature Austin Butler Hair style!

Now there’s this really big misconception around messy hair, which is that there’s no styling or product involved, well that’s wrong.

You’re going to need good quality wax or pomade and slightly massage it into your hair which ultimately gives it the textured finished look.

Messy Hair (Slicked Sides)

Now with a slight variation were able to see the subtle difference when we compare his messy hair and his messy hair with slicked sides.

This small intricate detail is enough to make all the difference in the world and it does, ask yourself did those slicks sides catch your eye? Yes, it did!

The most interesting thing about his messy hair is that it’s a variation of many styles, slicked sides, textured at front and spikes at back, I mean talk about versatile.

Long Hair

Everything from ponytails, man buns, long curly hair to straight down shoulder length was styled during this phase.

Whatever your preference is regarding his hairstyle 1 thing that can’t be denied is the options available are abundant which we got to see him also style in movies.

Take once upon a time in Hollywood or the Shannara chronicles, we see Austin’s hair at shoulder length which his congruent to the character he portrays in each of the films.
