I believe there are various interpretations of 'DA' from District Attorney to Duck's Ar5e, and others in between. However, Toddy, I believe your question relates to a male (mainly teddy boy) hairstyle of the late 50's / early 60's, where the long'ish sides were brushed back and came together at the back of the head. Hence the Duck's Ar5e connotation.

You are nearly correct Richard,it was not the sides but the back of the head hair shaped like the rear o a duck and held in place by brylcreem.

I remember a group of guys that used to put on the full teddy boy outfit on a Sunday night in Rudheath club in the 1970's. Full hair brushed back and blue suede shoes. They looked really impressive !
