Rockabilly Style

Without realizing it, I have been a fan of Rockabilly style for quite some time. I love the retro, fun accessorizing with bandannas and hair bands and actually wear them for functional purposes as well as for fashion flair.

Before harvesting my blueberries, kiwi, cucumbers and tomatoes this summer, I have often grabbed a bandanna or big hair scarf to keep my hair tied back and out of my way. I was not aware that I was rocking the Rockabilly Style that is becoming so popular.

Wikipedia defines Rockabilly as:

"...one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music, dating to the early 1950s. The word comes from the words "rock" (from "rock 'n' roll") and "hillbilly", the latter a reference to the country music (often called "hillbilly music" in the 1940s and 1950s) that contributed strongly to the style's development..its origins lie primarily in the Southern United States."

I have decided to create some headbands for sale in my etsy shop. Check them out here.
