A closely cropped
[So called because it was
worn by rowers.]
- Between 1957 and 1962 the
cropped hairstyle common among many male pre-teens and teenagers
in the USA was a fashionable fad in Britain, worn by those
emulating the 'progressive' aspects (rather than the more
flamboyant rock & roll look) of American pop culture. The
style, which first evolved
into a so-called semi-crew, then into a 'Roman' look, was out of
fashion from about 1963 to 1967, when late mods and
proto-skinheads revived it. The crew cut was revived by members of
the two tone movement from 1979, and a mutation of the crew cut,
the flat-top, was a fad of the early Eighties. The name of the
style probably ddervies from its popularity withAmerican college
rowing crews of the 1930s and 1940s.

- A process hairstyle (one where
the hair is straightened by the appliation of chemicals and/or heat)
as worn by hip young blacks in the U.S. from the 1920s until the
late 1960s, when it was superseded by the racially affirmative afro
style. Processed hair as worn by such celebrities as Michael Jackson
and Prince continued to causes controversy in the 1980s but the term
'conk' was no longer applied. It originated either as an alteration
of Congolene, the trademark name of a hair-straightener preparation,
or as a slang word for the head.

- The natural result of the
convergence of long hair and Afro-Caribbean hair texture, the Afro
(a shortening of 'Afro-American') became an emblematic expression of
black pride in 1967. Until that time most black militants of both
sexes had worn short or medium-length hairstyles indistinguishable
from those of conformist black society (in which the imitation of
white styles by straightening and bleaching was also widespread).
Allowing hair to grow and then teasing it into a mass of tight curls
produced a spectacular anti-Establishment symbol that quickly spread
from the street and campuses to the music and fashion industries.
Among white hippies, both male and female, and particularly in
Britain, the style became detached from its political overtones and
was adopted as the hair fad of the moment in the winter of 1967-8,
necessitating backcombing or perming. Afro wigs were also worn by
those forbidden to grow their hair, such as American prison inmates, and by those who were
willing to make only a part-time fashion statement. The Afro was
never African (it was banned in Tanzania as a symbol of
neo-colonialism), it was rejected by Rastafarians, and by about 1973
was mainly limited to the visual repertoire of funk music groups.

- Also known as the Eton flop
and the floppie, this male hairstyle consists of a short back and
sides with a long hank of hair swept across the top of the head to
fall over the eyes. Inspired by appearance of pre-Second World War
aesthetes, the flop is actually common to many British public
schools, where it allows languid gestures - the tossing of the
head, the flicking of the wrist - without offending against rules
long hair, which usually stipulate that the collar must not be
obscured. The flop flourished through the 1980s and was still in
evidence in the early 1990s, when it was not confined to
schoolboys but was also worn by college and university students of
differing class backgrounds and by some indie pop, shambling and
- elephant's trunk
- A spectacular male hairstyle of the Teddy Boy
era, the elephant's trunk consisted of a tubular quiff projecting
over the forehead. The arrangement was an eleboration of the early
DA. Worn by the proto-glam star Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music in 1971,
it was revived by some adherents of the rockabilly look in the
early 1980s, including a small number of females.
- flattop (flàt´tòp´)
1. An aircraft carrier.
2. A short haircut in which
the hair is brushed straight up and cropped flat across the top.ducktail
The flat-top hairstyle
originated as a modification of the American army-issue crew cut
(the 'GI crop') following the Second World War. The short all-over
military crop was lengthened and levelled off geometrically on the
top, while the sides were brushed back. (In a more radical version
known as the 'Mac Curtis' after a rockabilly star, a kiss curl and
duck tail were included.) In the USA, the flat-top became the
emblematic hairstyle of adolescent males - particularly
working-class youths and
rockabilly devotees - around 1956. When the neo-Rockabilly movement
replaced punk for some British fashion
followers in 1979, the flat-top took the place of the spiky crop to
provide a vogue style comparable to the similar black 'Philly-crop'
(prominent in hip hop culture) and the avant-garde geometric
successors of the wedge (taken to extremes by the black model and
singer Grace Jones in 1981). Bewteen 1980 and 1986 the flat-top
thrived among the representatives of the 'clean-cut' wing of male
fashion, having shed its specific Rockabilly overtones.
A hairstyle in which the
hair is swept back at the sides to meet in an upturned point in
back. Also called DA.
- Joe Cirello, a barber from
Philadelphia, claimed to have invented the DA (the initials stand fo
duck's ass' or 'duck's arse') in 1940. In fact a similar hairstyle,
sometimes called the Argentine Ducktail, consisting of greased hair
piled high on top and swept back at the sides to form a ridge or
seam at the back, was simultaneously fashionable among the
Mexican-American Pachucos of Los Angeles.
The DA was adopted as an emblematic coiffure by disaffected young
males all over the English-speaking world and beyond (particularlty
in France and Sweden) during the 1950s. In Britain it was part of
the visual identity of Teddy Boys and Rockers, along with the Quiff
and the Elephant's Trunk.
- marcel (mär-sèl´) noun
A hairstyle characterized by
deep, regular waves made by a heated
marcels verb, transitive
To style (the hair) with
deep, regular waves, using a curling iron.
To make such a hairstyle.

new wave entity B-52's
The beehive hairstyle. Also
known in the USA as the B-52 (after the giant bulbous WWII bombr
plane), the beehive-shaped hairdo was emblematic of working-class chic
in the early 1960s. The style originated in the USA in 1958 as one of
a variety of elaborately teased and lacquered versions of big hair
that mutaed from ealier pageboy and bouffant styles. It was adopted in
Britain shortly after, typically worn with pastel colours, taffeta and
stilettos. By the mid 1960s the beehive was out of fashion, but
probably subconsciously influenced the later more modest conical cuts
and bouffants worn by mod girls. The beehive has continued to
fascinate connoisseurs and revivalists of 1960s kitsch. It was
resurrected by the B-52's, an avant-garde post punk pop group from
Macon, Georgia, in 1978, and again by British chanteuse Mari Wilson in
1980, also featuring in John WAters' 1988 cult
