A shite male hairstyle favoured originally by English and European footballers in the 1970's and 80's (origin unknown), though the most classic examples can be found in the mid to late 1980's. Essentially the sytle comprises of a type of back permed (usually shortish) mullet. Only the back of the hair is permed and it is these curly parts that are referred to as 'The Scones'. The style maybe referred to solely as a back perm and the length of the scones themselves can vary.
Variations involved a top perm with a closer cropped back and sides, but to refer to these as 'Scones' would be technically incorrect. The word is a derivative of the Australian slang for head scone
Classic examples would cite Kevin Keegan and Chris Waddle but other European examples are available.
