Way back in the 1950’s The hair styles for Men took on a different look much inspired by the stars of film, and the music stars of the decade. What would a Pompadour be without a Dab of Brylcreen? You wouldn’t be so Debonair would you!
And you wouldn’t be a true greaser without the D.A. Cut “Ducktail” where the tooth edge of a comb was used to have it run from the, crown to the nape at the back of the head, looking like the rear end of a Duck!
There was also the “Flattop” A type of short haircut where the hair on the top of the head is standing upright and then cut to form a flat-appearing deck.
The crew cut style was a favorite of men who wished to be “mainstream” and the style for the draftees in the military.
