1950's Hair Tutorial's:



 
Rockabilly clothing is a mix of 1950s fashion, music and tattoos.  For women the style stems from 1940s and 1950s pinup girls with sexy pencil skirts and 1950s swing dresses. The style comes from rock n’ roll icons of the 50s with a splash of modern country. Some Rockabilly gals prefer a punk or gothic twist to the look. Check out ReeRee's Blog on tips to get the Rockabilly Look for Women.
