24 Rockabilly & Greaser Hairstyles for Every Taste
Greaser hairstyles are also known as “rockabilly hair” and it’s not wondering because the rock-and-roll stars, such as Elvis Presley, greatly influenced the creation of this trend. It was in the 1050s, but nowadays these pompous styles are making a comeback in updated versions with different modern twists.
The greaser hairstyle itself has got its name associatively. The point is to use a lot of hair styling product in order to reach wet and smooth effect. These hairstyles include comb overs, pompadours, “cow licks”, duck tails and some other more conservative cuts. Many modern rockabilly hairstyles are performed on the basis of popular undercut and seem to be loved again. Check out these updated ideas of greaser hairstyles.
#1. An Oldie but A Goodie
Such traditional greaser pompadour will never get old. It’s popular and fresh today like it was in far 50s. Unfortunately, it’s rather difficult in styling, so you need another pair of hands to help you.
#2. Sharp Fade Comb Over
We’ve already mentioned that the comb over as well as pompadour is the initial image of greaser hairstyles. Comb over definitely wins on the point of time required to style it, as all you need is to spread gel or pomade over your head with a comb.
#3. Nice Pomp for Dark Grey Hair
Here’s one more classic pompadour variation. As you can see, it doesn’t really matter how old you are and whether your hair is bright and healthy, or already grey with a receding hairline. Anyway, it drastically changes the way you look into a more serious and solid way.
#4. Short Greaser Pomp
Don’t spare hair pomade when dealing with greaser hairstyles, especially with pomps. Because your goal is not only to make it sleek but and also to fix it very tight to be sure it won’t be ruined occasionally and make you feel confused or worried.

#7. Rockabilly Bearded Skin Fade
Hey, guys, don’t forget about cool trendy beards, by the way. If your top is greased and smooth it doesn’t mean you can’t have a natural sloppy beard or moustache. It will make your image even more interesting, be sure!
#8. Tight Fade Undercut
If the greaser pompadour undercut seems too boring for you, here’s an idea how to make it more creative. Firstly, you can add a hard part (which is “must have” component of the majority of modern cuts). Secondly, think about a freestyle design, which is perfect to make the fade fresh.
