Apart from tapering the quiff should also be given some hold with a quality product and upswept slightly to make it more visible. Since the side and back are short nothing more is needed besides from the tapering.
# 2 Edged Pomp
A classic pompadour is a beautiful haircut by all standards, but you can make yours different and more attractive by spiking it. For this style, a few inches should be maintained at the crown while the sides should be given a skin fade. The longer hair is made spiky then styled into an amazing pompadour with a minor side parting.
# 3 Edgy Disheveled
It’s interesting how this cut looks like the wearer just woke up and stepped out with an incredible hairstyle. However, contrary to how it may look it is a result of some styling and good razor work. Light hair wax is used on the hair but what gives it an almost shaggy appearance is that it has been made by running fingers through it. Before getting to the styling part, you need to use a razor on the sides to make them short and to create a perfect fade.
# 4 Wavy Perfection
Wavy hair looks incredible when maintained well like in this cut. Wavy spikes here are well textured and voluminous and are made at the top section only, and the rest of the head buzzed out.

# 5 The Platinum Highlights

For this style, the cut is also important, but it is a conventional high top (three inches or more) and faded short sides and back.
