You can achieve this style with your own natural locks by following these simple steps. First, wash and condition your hair as normal. Next, apply a moisturizing cream to your damp tresses and brush it through evenly. Apply a small amount of gel or pomade to the top layer of your hair, then use an old toothbrush to comb it back into place at the temples. Finally, spritz on some hairspray for hold and volume.
Greaser girl makeup
If you’re like me, you love to wear makeup. But what if I told you that in the 1950s women couldn’t wear any makeup at all? That’s right- not even lipstick! The only time they could put on some powder is when they were attending a formal event or before taking their engagement photos. This is because society was very strict about how ladies should act and look back then. Luckily for us, today we can wear whatever kind of greaser girl makeup our hearts desire.
Girl Greasers from the Outsiders
When Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny Cade were confronted with socioeconomic disparity, they joined a gang to cope with the problems. The Outsiders was a greaser gang that consisted of kids from different backgrounds who had been ostracized by society. In the novel, The Outsiders, written by S.E. Hinton in 1967, Ponyboy and Johnny are considered greasers because they have long hair and wear black leather jackets. They both join this “grease-gang” because it offers them a sense of belonging – something neither one has ever felt before as their families were never there for them or supported them when they needed it most.
