Coif,  v.

Pronunciation: kwäf

Meaning: As a noun, this word refers to a woman’s close-fitting cap, now only worn under a veil by nuns. But I use the word in its verb form, which refers to the style or arrangement of, say, someone’s hair, typically in an elaborate way.


  • Waxes, putties, and gels are all available to craft the perfect male coif.
  • A stylist can also help adjust a standard style into a personalized coif, adding elegance and individuality to a girl’s prom appearance.
  • Bringing along a travel hair dryer is a wise precaution to ensure you are able to coif a fine style with your preferred tools.
