Just before my time tex - we went for the big hair-do's in the 60's but I remember seeing it in movies.
Elvis on TV was the one I remember. Not me, though. I would have had to move out of the house.
I am with laura, before my time!
Elvis was probably one of the early ones who started this fad, and the grease they wore was enough to pack wheels! Thanks, everyone, for the fun comments.
thanks for the memories. this is for my husband who thinks he is over the hill, your as old as you feel. he is 70 an i'm only 11 monthes younger an i don't feel that old i'm sending this to him
Oh yes! I had forgotten about this! Thanks, TS!
Yes, boys at school would spend most of their time, keeping those ducktails looking good.
My sis and I had ducktails once. We are 2 years apart but we always tried to dress alike as we were pretty much the same size, too. People are still confused today!
I remember this style on the boys, didn't see it on girls, Thanks for the memories Texasstar.
boy does this bring me backmy dad use to wear his hair like this i would watch him comb it into place in the mirror everydayhe even let me try to do it for him toothank for bringing that memory back to me
Absolutely. Bobby Rydell, Fabian, etc. I don't remember the girls with them, but I do remember the "spit curls"
Looks like it took more than "a little dab" of Brylcreem to hold that in place! We saw them on TV, but they were considered to be popular among "JDs" (juvenile delinquents), and weren't mainstream where I grew up. It makes me think of Jimmy Dean - but it's really cute on the girl in the upper right1
Kaya, my brother did too! It had to be perfect! Roseheather, I wore that too, only really fluffy and longer. Thanks, Baby Laura, Kaya, Chickie, GNT, Roseheather & DL2! Memory Lane all over again!
When I was in Junior High (now referred to as Middle School), I wore my hair in a DA style.
There was also a style for girls/ladies with a duck tail -- and my husband's sister wore her hair that way for a while.
I remember the DA"s I had one for many years up until my health went bad about 25 years ago
Thanks laura. Rub it in. LOL I remember.
I remember my brother, he spent hours to get the duck tail perfect.
I remember seeing them after the fact, but was too little when these were in style.
