Examples of the Rockabilly look are the long, wavy '40s and '50s styles. Tools that can do a good job are a curl iron or a perm/ wave. You'll have to finish wiht lots of hair spray.

A bang that has been blowdried in a curly way will finish up your Rockabilly look.

One of the first famous lady that loved this culty bang hairstyle was Betty Page (photo right). The former Playmate and Pin-up-Girl is still very honoured.
