Rockabilly Style Tips
Looking for rockabilly style tips? Get the information you need on this retro-punk fashion movement before you head for the vintage store or the hair salon.

Scan Vintage Consignment Shops For 1940s And 1950s Clothing
You can find rockabilly-style dresses, Vegas shirts, bowling shirts, trousers and sexy shoes at a consignment shop near you. You can also go online and look at dresses and men's outfits from this era to spark your imagination. Remember to look for tight-fitting dresses that hit below the knee or sweetheart necklines that are ruched at the chest, fitted at the waist and flared or full below the waist. You can also wear high-waist pencil skirts and fitted sweaters.

Don The Right Shoes
Rockabilly girls wear high-heeled shoes worthy of a pin up girl. Make sure you go all out with the shoes to vamp up your rockabilly style.

Capitalize On The Make Up
You can add a lot to your rockabilly style by mastering the rockabilly make up look. Use foundation and a light amount of a natural-looking blush. Line your eyelids with dark liquid or grease pencil eyeliner to give yourself a cat-eye look, and use plenty of mascara or fake lashes. Generously color in your lips with matte, deep red lipstick.

Try Pin Up Hairstyles
You can use old-fashioned rollers to create waves or big roll curls that you will pin up to create classic rockabilly hair. You can also use rollers to create huge curls that frame your face. Pin the curls with barrettes on either side of your face, or part your hair to one side and use one barrette to hold the humongous curls out of your face. The rest of your hair should be sleek and smooth, with curls just at the ends.

Check Out Bettie Page For Inspiration
This fresh-faced naughty girl was a pin-up sensation and the inspiration of many a rockabilly fashion statement. If you've got short bangs and long hair, you can easily copy Bettie Page's classic hairstyle by rolling your hair and then combing it out into sleek waves. Use hair product to achieve that classic shine and smoothness.

 

Dress Rockabilly
It's easier to dress rockabilly than you may realize. If you want to sport a rockabilly style, follow these simple tips:

How Men Can Dress Rockabilly: The Rockabilly Outfit
The best rockabilly men's shirts are vintage bowling shirts, Vegas shirts or Daddy-O shirts, worn over a white T-shirt and with the collar over a baggy jacket. Wear slacks and black-and-white creepers, or shoes with crepe soles.

The Rockabilly Hair
The classic rockabilly cut is long on top and very, very short on the sides and in the back. http://www.kristybassett.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Rockabilly-Hair-Joel.jpgShampoo and towel-dry your hair, and then liberally apply pomade with your fingers. Choose if you want a parted greaser style, a slicked-back greaser style or a pompadour. If you want one of the two classic looks, just apply the pomade, and use a comb to comb the hair straight back or to part your hair and comb it back. Use your fingers to tease the front curls into defined curls. You may wish to use a little beeswax to piece out a few curls. If you wish to do the pompadour, you'll want to use less grease pomade and more beeswax. Use your hair dryer to dry your hair straight up, using a brush to lift the hair and applying beeswax at the roots to help it stand up. Use a comb and your fingers to guide the hair back, maintaining the required poof in front.

 To do the rockabilly hairstyle right, you'll have to get a middy cut. This cut consists of sections of layers. This means your stylist will have to cut your hair into sections, each four inches long with each section about one and a half inches wide. The only sections that are a different length are the three-inch-long ones on the sides, as they are intended to frame your face. After washing and toweling dry your hair, you'll need to roll it on rollers and let it dry completely. When your hair is dry, you'll need to remove the curlers gently, keeping the curls whole. Carefully tease the inside of each roll to give it volume, keeping each roll intact and smooth. Use bobby pins to pin each roll in place. Spray with hairspray.
