The Icons
Betty Page has been a huge influence on the rockabilly style. Her short bangs became so famous that they are still called "Betty Bangs." Another important person who made this style a phenomenon is legendary artist Elvis Presley.
Rockabilly involves bright, colorful dresses, long pants with cuffs, or huge flared skirts, polka dots, big hair updos, bright red lipstick, the classic pompadour, and so much more! Bold and glamorous rockabilly is a classic retro style inspired by the rockabilly music of the 1950s. Although the music is not very popular today, the fashion of those times has influenced generations and still continues to do so.

Take some pomade and apply it to the hair on top of your head. Bend a little and blow dry upside down. Now let it fall back on the head. You will get a nice bouffant. The key is to get some height.

If you have very long hair, you can wear a pony along with the pompadour. You can also create pin curls with the remaining hair.
