Rockabilly Girls....What do we wear?

 Rockabilly Girls

Whether you follow high fashion, or an alternative fashion, the majority of us do actually stick to some sort of fashion rules. We may pick and mix from a few, changing which set of rules we follow that day, but it is rare to meet anyone who literally follows no rules at all.

So if you are wanting to follow some of the 'Rockabilly Girl' rules what are they? Feel free to pick and mix from the following! (Also feel free to comment if you disagree!)

Rockabilly Girl Hair

You want a strong and definite colour. Rockabilly girls aren't shy. Black, white blonde, and bright red are all very classic rockabilly /pin-up hair colours. And you can maintain them at home as they are all block colour tones. No highlighting needed here!

Once you have your hair you need to style it! You could opt for the classic bettie bangs - a short u-shaped fringe. This can be cut, or faked (roll hair into a pretend bang). There are the options of victory rolls, bee-hives, bandanas, or curled and brushed out to a vintage wave. The pomp' is also an easy every day look - if you don't go for the fringe. 

You can use a variety of hair accessories - a bandana, a hair flower, or bows.
