Have X Factor's new boy band Union J been taking styling tips from One Direction?

One Direction‘s Zayn Malik has made the flamboyant quiff his own by adding a blond streak. 

Now X Factor boyband Union J are getting on the act with Josh Cuthbert and Jamie Hamblett sporting variations on 50s hair style, also known as the DA,  which stands for duck’s arse. Yes, really!

When James Dean shot the cult movie Rebel Without A Cause in
1955, we wonder whether he realised that fast-forward to 2012, his
iconic quiff would be inspiring a whole new generation of boy bands?

Make like James Dean and get the look with a slick of Brylcreem style pomade £4.17.
