Duck Ass Hairstyle



 

The duck ass was a haircut style fashionable during the 1950s. The hairdo was shaped by Philadelphia barber Joe Cirella in 1940 and took off when it was worn by television, movie and musical stars. It was also know as the Duck's Butt, Duck's Ass, or basically D.A. The actual name was Duck's Ass, but politeness called for the name Ducktail to be used in mixed company. Further than the poodle skirt, no other symbol of the 1950s has captured the thoughts and endured so well.


The duck ass hair style added to the term greasers to achieve this look, lots of hair grease was required to hold the hair in place. This was still the period of hair creams, so it only necessary an increase in the amount to make hair stay in the desired style.

Tips for duckass hairstyle

  • The duck ass hairdo was naturally longer than the traditional short-back-and-sides of the normal fifties men's haircut, even though it is almost straight laced by contrast to today's fashion.
  • The hair at the nape was more often than not grown to at least 1to1-1/2 inches in length and would be combed back on each side near the middle back and then a tail comb was used to draw a parting line down the middle of the back of the head.
  • The hair products such as brylcreem and other thick, paste kind or you can use oil based pomades were used and then set, hair would grasp its style through a lot of mistreatment.
