HA! Excellent. I need to take this to my hair stylist and tell her I want something different every month. (Now I need to come up with an additional 3 styles...)

This shows the style of the greasers, with big flowey skirts and tight tops with cat eye sunglasses for the girls and tight jeans and leather for the boys.

Teddy boys. These boys were a part of subculture that like to dress similar to dandies in the Edwardian period.

1950s Greasers- For those of you seeing this without reading glasses, here's a piece of news for you. "Cool" was our word. We said it a bit differently. Today it is said in a more clipped way. We tended to drag out the pronunciation. But we had it first; we were the originals. jj

1950s Americana realness in the daytime. Usually I kind of hate rockabilly style (SORRY 'BOUT IT), but this guy is so authentic it's like some guy working at a garage in 1956 fell into a wrinkle in time and emerged in the present.
