The D.A. (or duck’s arse)

The 1950s Teddy Boys wore a variety of hair styles like the Boston or the Tony Curtis to complement their Edwardian wardrobe, but the style that this working class movement become most infamous for has to be The D.A.

With its flamboyant swept up quiff at the front and greased back shorter sides, it sweeps round to the back in two symmetrical rolls to create The D.A. or duck’s arse.

 What to ask for:

A good modern version of this rocking look can be achieved with mid length hair, at least three inches on the top to achieve height on the quiff and shorter on the sides and back.

On towel-dried hair apply a small amount of Original Fishshape Cream and blow-dry quiff into shape using fingers or a narrow bristle brush. Finish with Superfish Fishfix Wax to grease back the sides and add a gloss finish. Rock n roll!

Thanks for listening and keep on styling,
