Rockabilly Hairstyles

Victory rolls hairstyle

Rockabilly Hairstyles

There’s something about vintage, rockabilly inspired hair that’s cool no matter what year it is.  It was a big year for fashion and hair that’s held strong still to this day.  There are some incredibly fun, funky hairstyles from the rockabilly time.  Since they always feel fun and somehow fresh, we thought it fit in great to our hairstyling tips theme of the week.  While the hairstyles may look difficult to achieve, they’re actually fairly simple to accomplish at home – really!   Let’s take a walk down rockabilly lane and chat the hairstyles from that time, that you may want to revisit in 2016!

Victory rolls hairstyle

Victory Rolls
The victory rolls hairstyle is a major rockabilly look, you know the look… typically they’re the ultra-glamorous, big curls at the top of the head that are typically lead into pinned back hair or flowers.  While it looks like a really complicated look to create, it’s a lot easier than you think!  To create the look you want to start with clean hair that you’ve placed the product in, and create your part.  Once you’ve done that you want to grab the sections you’re creating the rolls with and tease them, once they’re teased smooth out the hair with a round brush and begin ROLLING the hair around 2-3 fingers starting at the end of your hair and working your way towards the scalp.  Once you get to the scalp, remove your fingers and secure the newly created roll with bobby pins.  Did you realize that’s all it took?!

Perky Ponytail
One of our other favorite rockabilly hairstyles was the perky ponytail, while we see ponytails all the time still, the retro vibe comes in with the ponytails being on the high side and typically slicked back but tight curls in the ponytail.  If you have bangs, generally they’re given a big voluminous look or victory curl type of vibe to add the extra rockabilly touch.  It’s another super easy hairstyle to create, but doesn’t lack any rockabilly inspiration!

Bandana updo

Bandana Updo
One of the other major trends that held consistent in the rockabilly hairstyles is the use of bandanas in the hair as an accessory.  Even now, adding a bandana and tying it at the top of the head gives it that instant retro, rockabilly vibe.  The great thing about the use of bandanas is you’re able to keep the rest of the hair fairly low key and simple, the bandana adds all the flair.  Most of the time you’ll see rockabilly hairstyles with bandanas worn with a bun high up and the bandana worn large taking over the hair from just below the bun to the nape of the neck and tied at the top of the head.  Generally, bangs are/were tied back under the bandana or curled and worn in a way that almost looked like a victory curl or bun as well.

The use of curls, rolls and accessories were huge in the rockabilly hairstyle trends.  Luckily, they’re easy ways for us to still incorporate the vintage vibe.

Will you give any of these rockabilly hairstyles a try?

    I love the bandana look. Ever since I started watching Roadies, I’ve started wearing my hair up with a bandana again. It’s perfect for working out, too! It keeps the sweat from running down my face and burning my eyes!

    I love the 1950’s style. It was a time where women looked feminine and stylish. Both hairstyles are great. It is a softer touch than the very stiff honey comb they had in the 50’s. Will definitely try these styles with this clipless curling iron if I win. Fingers crossed.
