What is Rockabilly ?
Rockabilly began as a music genre, but is now considered a subculture who's style of dress is heavily influenced by the 1950s. Rockabilly gets its name from combining "rock n' roll" with "hillbilly"; a term that came about to describe a type of music hybrid in the 1950s made popular by artists like Elvis and Johnny Cash.
It was then revived in the 1980's with bands such as The Stray Cats and The Polecats. You can notice a Rockabilly Guy by there Slicked Quiffs, Turn-Ups and Engineering Boots or Converse. Girls usually wear the same but with a Quiff, Bettie Paige fringe or Curled hair. Also, their red lip-stick remains the iconic look of sex appeal.
Rockabilly is not a style it's a way of life!
