There really aren't many different rockabilly hairstyles. For the most part it's one cut with a nearly infinite number of variations on that theme. The first, and possibly most important, component of the haircut for a true rockabilly girl is bangs. For an authentic rockabilly cut the bangs need to be four inches long and cover a five inch wide section of hair. Perhaps one of the most famous women wearing the rockabilly cut was Betty Page. Her bangs represent the standard rockabilly look. But the hairstyles go far beyond bangs.
The next component is layering. All rockabilly hairstyles are layered. Each layer is four inches long. Curls are also important for pulling off a genuine rockabilly look. While you do not have to have naturally curly hair or even a perm to pull off the look you do need to be willing to spend a little time curling your hair in order to do it. Roll curls were the most common and are the most recognizable or rockabilly styles. They are large curls created by rolling the hair while damp. Once the hair has dried and the rollers have been removed the hair is thoroughly teased and then teased a little more for good measure and then rolled into a tube using a round hairbrush. Next, tuck the ends of the hair into the created roll and pin and spray with hairspray like crazy.
The latest rockabilly hairstyles fad can be, to a great extent, attributed to a number of celebrity endorsements that is, cases where highly regarded personalities have been spotted wearing them, naturally leading to their widespread appeal with the general public. There are a number of options, when it comes to rockabilly hairstyles. These are basically classified color-wise, and include the so called platinum blonds (for that irresistible looks associated with blondes), and the bold blacks for that bold hard-to-see-through look that black gives, and shiny reds - for those who feel daring enough.
Now your success with rockabilly hairstyles depends on how you go about styling your look. With regard to styling, your options as far as rockabilly hairstyles go range from the so called retro-cut, to the whole range of bangs, which includes the so-called Bettie Page and blunt bangs. The retro-cut, whenever employed in rockabilly hairstyles, however, tends to be the most noticeable of all styling methods. The retro-cut, as universally known, involves cutting the edges of your hair all the way around the head - by a whopping four inches, except at the points that border the ears, where the cut is smaller than the four inches.
