How to Create Rockabilly Hair

What are the main characteristics of the hairstyle? Firstly, you should know that short or medium haircuts will make the best rockabilly style. In order to really rock the style, you will need waves or curls running along the back of your hair. This is a fairly polished look, so you will need hair pins that are well-hidden and strong. It is important to make sure you have the right hair styling products before you start creating this style.

If you go for tight curls, it can give you that casual look, especially if you decide to have a back bun. If you go for loose curls, then you will look more glamorous as you have waves going through your hair. With your bangs, you will be able to create a big wave or straighten them in order to get that very popular Bettie Page look. For this hairstyle, we recommend you using hot hair rollers as they are the perfect styling tools.

Once you have successfully gotten the curl in your bangs, it is time to ease the back part of the curls and make a big wave in the front of your hair.

Believe it or not, this is going to be the main details of your look. Next, it is time to pull back the rest of your hair into a comb. Make sure you make it tight at the sides. Finish it off with lots of hairspray to make sure it stays in place.

If you have long hair, then you will still be able to go for this style. If you have hair that is long in length, then you will need to get pin curls. Get all of your hair curly and make it where your bangs are swept across the side.

With long hair, if you like, you could try the comb, but it may be harder because of the length of you have. Finger waves are another good option that you will be able to do to your hair. Whatever you do, make sure you will be able to properly fix the curls into that polished look
