Retro fit styles for guys and gals in the 21st century.
Since the Met Gala’s recent “punk” theme hit the red carpet, we’ve found ourselves swooning over certain punk-rockabilly hairstyles.
The rockabilly hair revival has gradually gained momentum over the last few years, with the display of 1930′s/50′s-inspired hair for both men and women. The message is clear: rockabilly – specifically rockabilly hair – is still here. It remains a key vintage-revival hairstyle of 2013.
Designers including Jil Sander and Thomas Maier (pictured above on the left) have had models sporting dramatic rolls with loose pony-tails. Brigitte Bardot (pictured above right) is an iconic inspiration for voluminous, seductive hair. As fashion continues working full-circle to revive past decades, her style is one worth mastering, and adapting, year after year.
Male models from a Bottega Veneta show (pictured directly left and right) experimented with the rockabilly style through long, reverse curled pompadours (also known as ‘ducktails’) and short sides.
The present incarnation of rockabilly isn’t the only resurgence since the 50′s age of glamour, but has been on and off trend many times since its inception. Now gracing the covers of magazines and street corners alike, this fluid style is quick to be adopted by statement-makers and bold fashion devotees.
