Rockabilly hairstyles require a short fringe or pompadour and texture in the hair for it to hold. Tease and hairspray to create height and shape in the front and finish with curls in the back as demonstrated by a hairstylist in this free video on hair tips.
Hi, I'm Kristin with Salon Republic, and today we're going to show you how to do Rockabilly hairstyles. So, the first thing we're going to do with a Rockabilly hairstyle is Rockabilly is really all about a really short fringe or a Pompadour. So, we're going to combine the two of them and do a reverse Pomp to give us a short fringe. We're going to start by taking a V-shaped section from about the center of the crown to the recession line in the hair. So, the width of this section is what's going to determine how much bang or Pompadour we are creating, and we are going to start by creating texture in the hair for hold and teasing the hair. So, we're going to add some hair spray. This is what's going to help us create the texture and the hold because we need our teasing to hold in place. So, next section, same thing, a little hair spray for hold and texture and also while we are teasing, we want to tease everything forward because our Pompadour is going to go forward. So, we're getting a nice tight tease right down to the base. You can see now that we're starting to build our height and our shape with our teasing. Okay, so now that we have our whole front section fully teased and fairly in the shape that we're going for, we're going to spray it just to keep it solid. Now we're going to go ahead and smooth this section into the exact shape that we want. So we've got our section nice and smooth and what we're going to do now is we're going to roll the hair under and we're going to pin it. So, now we're going to go ahead and we're going to lift the sides of her hair up into a nice tight high ponytail and now we're wrapping, we're taking our Bungee and we're wrapping it around to secure the ponytail and we will also wrap the hair around the ponytail holder and secure that with a bobby pin. So, now we're going to start waving the underneath section to give it that full Rockabilly feel. I'm spraying on a little Hot Sets. This is what's going to help our hair hold the curl then we're going to brush that through. We're going to just curl the ends. All we're looking for here when using a curling iron is just to have a slight wave in through the ends of the hair. So, we're going to go ahead and pin that and so now we'll repeat with the next section. We're taking fairly large sections underneath here because like I said we're not looking for a tight wave. So, we're going to continue this type of curling pattern on the rest of the hair. Okay so we've completed our curls across all the hair and now we're going to take them out. Okay so now we're going to brush the through our curls and just brush them into a soft wave. We'll continue to do that around the head. So, here we have our completed Rockabilly hairstyle.
